why all the negativity and outright hatred for Price?? He seems alright to me, and a decent fighter.

It's not hatred at all.

But a lot of people are talking him up as a future contender if not champion.

Personally he has got a LOT to prove before I can put him in that category

I just think the perception of him is unrealistic at the moment

He seems to get a pass for his quality of opposition aswell which is a bit mind boggling.
I don't hate the guy though,I don't know him to hate him as a person...even if you slate
him on here you get people going bat **** insane,but it's ok to rip on Fury constantly apparently?

Yeah, Fury has fought at a much higher level, they are not treated equally by fans at all

It's the usual nonsense "Fury is fat and ****,no skill,no power nothing" yet he's not lost.
Hopefully if he beats Kingpin convincingly his stock will go up here and people will give him a bit of credit.

Please explain to me who he's fought who is "much higher level"? Chisora ok, he's the best opponent either have faced but after that, aren't they just domestic level opponents for both?

Sure, Fury's fighting Johnson but he hasn't won it yet.

yes because he vacated.

All talk, speaking like that during interviews saying he wants to do this to price and saying he wants to fight him etc.

Fury didnt have to vacate, he & his team around him chose to, but Fury had to agree to vacate.

So not only did he choose to avoid Price, he avoided him to fight Rogan and Maddalone, by avoiding Price he will have also missed the oppurtunity to earn a decent pay day, but you will probably tell me fury earned more against rogan

I dont have to explain ****, he beat Chisora who is miles above anyone Price has fought, Pajkic again above anyone Price has fought, Rogan stopped the guy Price is fighting next, and Fury got **** for that fight

And no, he hasn't beaten Johnson yet, but he's fighting him, after Chagaev, Adamek, Botsov et al didn't want any.

Stop drinking the Price Kool-Aid and take a look at what's really going on here

I don't hate the guy at all... I just refuse to hype the **** out of a guy who has done **** all in the pro game. How can people call him a future king from he's done so far? He has got mad power and a lot of potential- but that is all.

Scousers are embarassingly defensive over "Pricey" as well. One told me its ok he's fighting British bums because all the European level guys are bums as well. I mean wtf seriously? Worst excuse I've ever heard.

the answer of someone who knows he's got no argument. The fact is Fury hasn't faced consistently better opponents than Price so stop clutching at straws. ***ton was better than any of Fury's domestic opponents bar Chisora and you're just saying Pajkic is relevant because he floored Fury. He hasn't beaten anyone of note.

You might try and sound like your a knowledgeable poster these days Earl but everyone who's been here a while remembers the boring troll you've always been. Stick to that, you were easier to ignore

I think you take this lark a bit too seriously, are you a scouser by any chance?

Fury got schooled by McDermott who Price knocked out in a round.

Fury is a decent fighter but Price would knock him out.

"Schooled"

No, he got a gift decision in a fight he was actually competetive in.

And if you think Fury hasn't improved since then you are dreaming

Na fighters can't improve lad, that is why we are talking about Price getting knocked down over 4 years ago.
