Price faced Harrison and Skeleton, no slouches by any means.
I don't think it was bad matchmaking for him to face Thompson. He might have undertrained, been injured or just not talented enough to beat Thompson.
This is not a situation like Amir Khan/Bradis Prescott (Colombian with dynamite in his hands vs a chinny fighter).
