Vitali Klitschko vs Kevin Johnson In December?

Reportedly, the current WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (38-2-0, 37 KO's) might secure a bout with undefeated American heavyweight Kevin Johnson (22-0, 9 KO’s) sometime in December of this year. Oleg Maskaev also came up as a possible name, but this is mainly due to there not being that many opponents for Klitschko to choose from at this time. According to boxrec, Vitali is already scheduled to face Johnson, but nothing is confirmed as of now.

Out of the 2 Johnson would make the better choice. He's young, undefeated, and Vitali may like the idea of fighting again on American soil against another American fighter. Oleg is pretty old now and would give Vitali no opposition in my opinion.

The Johonson fight should be easy for Vitali. Johnson doesn't appear to have much power as indicated by his record, and although he has a nice jab he used to control fights, the 6'3" Johnson isn't going to be able to use the same strategy that has worked for him against smaller and lesser opposition than Vitali.

If this fight happens look for Vitali to add another undefeated fighter on his win column, and this time in much quicker fashion than his last bout with Arreola.
