That's a great point. Price fans try to delusion themselves by concentrating on how few fights he's has so far, totally ignoring the fact that it's one thing to get in trouble in the ring when you're still young and bounce back from it, and completely different to get stretched on the canvas for the first time in your 30s... It might well be a career-ender by then. Just look at Harrison, he's a fine example of this road map.
