Exactly. You need to acclimitize before taking on the big guys. No point in taking on guys who are all at the same level as each other. Skelton culd possibly beat Thompson. That is why I think Bellew lost to Cleverly. He went from Ovill Mckenzie to Cleverly. Big step up.

Price has fought no one world class since his amateur days. He has been fighting cans for 3-4 years. Yes he had the sparring. But sparring is just not the same as the real thing. I fail to believe that 'no one will fight price'. Money talks and I am sure they can cough up the dosh to persuade one of them.
