T you're right Morrison was chinny, look at it from a business POV, it made sense to feed Morrison baby food, it made sense to keep him in the heavyweight picture by giving him a few win's. Morrison was highly marketable and made good fights for TV, and I hate to say it, he was white. In reality he was limited by his overall skills and his chin. Now that Price has been exposed the promoters should follow the Morrison model, cos I am guessing Price's chin will let him down again.
As far as protecting Morrison too long, Morrison's management and promoter did a good job in moving him. Price and team, on the other hand was tossing the dice.
