I don't mean to trash Price here...I think he's a great prospect; he's easily better than Fury.
McDermott clearly beat Danny Williams and Tyson Fury but was robbed.
Who has Bakhtov beaten? He beat Kretschmann, one of the worst excuses for a prospect I've seen, and that's about it really.
I don't want to trash either Glazkov or Bakhtov here. Glazkov is on a similar level to Price skills-wise but doesn't have his power. Bakhtov is a solid Euro level journeyman.
But Price has beaten his last 3 opponents far more quickly than Glazkov, because of this Price is getting himself into contention while Glazkov is being largely ignored. If he doesn't have the power then bring in more respectable opposition so he can demonstrate his skills.
