Why do people look back to amateurs to see what someone's chin is like?

Look at the pro's and Fury has been knocked down by Malignaggi league punchers. I'm sure people more knowledgeable than me will know of other fighters with solid chins who had been knocked out in the amateurs. Plus if that was a pro fight maybe Price would have recovered.

Fury until Price proves us the opposite. Fury has gone down but we know that he's able to get up and he wasn't in big trouble afterwards

He wasn't in big trouble afterwards because he was hit by a featherfisted bum.

Chances are if he goes down from a punch like that, after a much heavier one he would stay down.

It's when the recovery is as weak as the chin when you have someone like Amir Khan (against Prescott, not so much Garcia) or Jones Jr when you have trouble.

Also… I've seen that Price clip only a handful of times and, honestly, first time I saw it, knowing so many people are critical of his chin, I was expecting him to be flattened. He was on his sit on the rope but made it to his feet. He was hardly concussed. Furthermore, that's Cammarrelle in there. One of the finest amateur boxers of the last 15 years, not some mook from down the street.

Overall, I'd say they're even.

What people need to be looking at is how easily Price has been countered in the amateurs....and Fury counters, especially when he's in trouble. Unless Price has dealt with that then Fury will deliver another counter shot and put him away.

Fury I would think, Price has been dropped and stopped many times in the ams and hasnt been hit once by a decent puncher in the pros yet ,

Fury dropped Price in the ams when he was only 17 =

At this moment in time no judgement can be made

Price has not fought sufficient level of opposition to be nailed on the chin

Fury has been smacked many times and held up, although against lower level fighters, other than that Latvian belly dancer that put him flat on his back about 4 fights ago.

Im telling you this now Tyson Fury is tougher than Price. When he gets hit he is gonna crumble. And Tyson Fury is willing to be the man to do it.

Even Audley wasnt getting ko'd all the time with head gear on in 3rd fights.


Like when Bermane Stiverne sparked Price

Well Price appears to have the better defence, but we can only wait and see
