Not sure myself, Price is just a bit too staid to have popular appeal. He's a well drilled boxer and a consummate professional but the public like their heroes flawed. Ricky's popularity was owed more to his inter-fight drinking and gluttony than his fighting ability. I reckon Fury, though probably less able (at least for now - he's got a few years to catch up) - has the greater break-out potential: terrestrial TV deal, "characterful" lapses of good sense, family ructions etc.
