BUT I suspect his punch resistance against big, tall punchers IMPROVES when he doesn't have padding guarding his temple and chin :

I don't want to see Wach in the ring ever again with a massive puncher,having an iron chin is a good thing but when it's that good? **** that,the shots Wlad landed over and over again were disgusting.Dread to think what his face looked like a few hours later.

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.
Those mentionned are the level of contenders in the Heavyweight division. The only two who have clearly proven to be above them are the Klitschko's and maybe Povetkin, plus Haye obviously if he carries on fighting. You said he'd soon be found out in your first post but then said he could beat them and that we can't judge him yet. Make your mind up

The division isn't steeped in talent and once Wlad and Vitali retire is wide open for anyone. Price has the quality to beat those type of fighters and the likes of Fury who have struggled at the lower levels so I'm surprised at how convinced some are to write him off.

What would that be? The same claim about him being knocked down by him that I addressed in the exact same post that you cropped

I just think the particular ones you mentioned aren't particularly hot prospects IMO. I think if he steps in with someone with a punch then he is in big trouble.

Price hasn't been in a tough fight so I'm not going to be convinced yet, until he gets in there with someone that can actually take more than one punch without folding and that puts him on the back foot I won't be as sure as you seem to be that he will get to the top

I took your claim and quoted it....dont want to waste forum bandwidth. Fury knocked Price down, quite heavily, with a shot high up on his head....he did go down like a sack of shit. After watching that and listening to people I know who have seen the lad throughout his career, ams and pro, he is a bit of a Khan waiting to happen

Last year, just before McDermott, he fought a guy who had defensive skills and could take a punch ... but was basically APPALLING.

It lasted 7 rounds before a *cough* 'TKO' by Price.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

This guy was 5'11, 37 and had a 5-16 record.

Of course Price will meet someone who can take his power ... this guy could.

The point is he'll meet someone who can take his power and also punch and isn't a foot shorter and and 10 years older.

Pretty much like the list of guys in the o/p he's lost and/or been KD'd by/

If any of you have FB go over to the David Price Fanpage ... some of the guys on there are ridiculous with their claims,Price having the best jab ever at HW all the way through to his ring walk from the ***ton fight being the best ever , people are going utterly bat shit ****ing crazy over this guy and i'm yet to see why? For whatever reason people see his win over Audley as credible aswell yet shat on Haye for it and would do the same to Fury.

The list was fighters Price EITHER lost to in the ams OR was put on his backside by,

Fury is in the secod category. At 17 years he ONLY managed to put Price on his backside

There are a quite a few other fighters who have knocked down Price. Some Indian guy and a couple of others.

TBF it is a testament to Price's ability that he could keep going down and winning,

Chisora and Fury for example never even took a count between them in the amateurs.

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.
Why is it okay for price to get brutally ktfo in headgear "because has 22" but fury had a tough 10 rounds with seasoned pro mcdermott at the same age and is a bum.

Fury will ko price

People only like price because he's a loser like them

This may sound utterly ridiculous but Price looks like someone who has a poor chin physically. Small head and thin neck (relative to his body). Personally think that Fury has a good chin and he'll stand there and bang Price out.

People hate Fury because he's a Gypsy, it's that simple,they like to pretend it's because he talks trash but lets be honest alot of boxers do it and don't get anywhere near the shit he does.
