Default Who HASN'T Price lost to or been floored by in the ams/

Fury
Wach
Helenius - multiple times
Stiverne
Camarelle - LOTS of times
Dimitrenko
Pulev

* and sent home by David Haye for going down too easily in sparring


And this is just for starters


It does make you wonder WHY as a 30 year old 'prospect' Maloney is making Price face Matt Skelton?

Remind me when Fury beat Price in the ams? Good attempt at trolling but it makes you wonder why? Maybe you know the fact Fury still comprehensively lost, despite flooring Price, shows he's just not on Price"s level.

Maybe that's why you keep trying to convince yourself Price is lookibg vulnerable

It makes me laugh that people mention the Wach and Stiverne fights. They both turned pro in 2005, when Price was 22. Even if they did knock him down, so what? He was a young, green fighter who hadn't fully matured.

Aside from that, he wouldn't be the first fighter to be an inferior amateur to a pro. If Price fought Wach, it'd be a horrible mismatch.

Price is a can crusher, he got bashed up in the amateurs by everyone (you forgot Pulev and Stiverne btw)

It's only time before his pathetic glass chin gets exposed and the hype vanishes

The guy is a hype job, plain and simple

Shows what happens when he steps up his level, not long until he is found out

How does it? The amateur game is completely different to the professionals and Price hasn't looked remotely concerned by anything thus far. The fact his style has developed and been refined to the pro game which takes advantage of his power and height abd protects his chin is obviously lost on some ignorant people.

Just like when people were proved right about Haye being sparked as an amateur holding him back in his pro career. Oh yeah maybe not ....

He hasn't faced anyone that would concern a decent heavyweight, obviously they are different games but the amount of times it happend has to suggest something.

What a narrow minded viewpoint to have. "It's happened before so will happen again", ruling out the possibility of him improving. If you'd actually watched them amateur fights and compared the Price of them to now, you would see the progression. But going by your lazy logic, he'll get beat by the likes of Stiverne, Helenius and Wach now? Not from what I and most like minded boxing fans have seen.

Well a few years back, I was asked to step into the ring with this Liverpudlian beanpole...

You can't change your chin in boxing, he can improve and protect it more but if he gets in there with someone decent and gets caught he is going to go down IMO. I think he would beat those guys which you have stated but against a higher level of opposition I don't see him having the tools to win. You can't really judge his progression when he has been fighting low British level fighters. If he gets in there with someone half decent then maybe we can judge.
