Price has showcased his abilities more than enough against useless Englobums and needs to step it up !

He is becoming another Povetkin.

There are tons of interesting opponents out there, he could fight Chisora, Fury, Adamek, etc. all of these fight could be made if Price and perhaps more importantly his team agreed.

He's got to step it up to even be another Povetkin, by this stage povetkin had fought Byrd and chambers in an IBF eliminator tournament and was top ten ranked.

The path he is on would be fine if he was 24 and two years into a career.

At this rate he will be like Audley and spend his peak working his way up and by the time any title shots come along he would be past his best.

A modern heavyweight is able to continue successfully well into his 30s, but this relies on having a wealth of experience at the top like, lewis, holyfield, wlad etc had.
