Overall though i've been quite impressed with Fury's progress, only the recent problem of him not facing Price. I don't buy that that was all Fury/Hennesy's fault though. He fought McDermott very early and at a very young age. Has taken on a lot of undefeated fighters (not always brilliant but actually there to win and not just fall over). Gradually stepped up his level of competition.

I see the slight problem being that he's obviously not the finished article, and ideally his promoter would mix continuing gradual steps up in class with some learning fights against less dangerous opponents. Trouble is, if you're headlining shows on terrestrial TV, you're not going to be afforded learning fights. And Mick doesn't have enough fighters, to put the learning fights on other undercards.
Totally agree with this, people forget that until recently Fury was fighting better opposition than Price, despite being 6 years younger.
