Default The odds for Price vs Fury have now shortened with bookies

Prior to Skelton fight, Fury was 3/1

He is now 2/1 with most bookies.

An impressive performance against Johnson tomorrow will see them shorten further.

Strange that a second round KO can reduce your favourability - but I fully understand why. Price didn't look good at all tonight against a man nearly in his SIXTH decade.

not many people will be putting money on it so a fury fan putting 100quid on it could change the odds significantly.

Spot on. And bearing in mind that a travelling man tends to be a betting man...

Travelling men like to bet on a sure thing, and Fury beating Price certainly isn't.

Of course, but they're loyal to their own and will bet with their hearts not their heads. Like most of us.

I've prob got the blinkers on being a scouser - but don't give fury a chance in this ! Shit defence and dodgy chin = price early knock out IMO !

Did listen to the fight on the radio tonight?

Skelton had Price squirming and back tracking like a scared jack russell ffs, proved he has plenty of flaws just waiting to be exposed.

Fury does him within 2 rounds.

I rest the case for the defence

Price looked DREADFUL tonight against and old man nearing 50.

He literally relies on his power and when he meets fighters that just simply don't give him time to settle and throw his right and/or can take it - then he is in a whole world of trouble.

When his head snapped back twice in the first 30 seconds tonight, I feared the worse for Price.

Chisora would take this sucker out in 4 or 5 rounds.

Price cannot deal with pressure.

Yeah as I've been saying for a while it's a real 50/50 fight.

Chisora would be an interesting test for Price imo. Skelton won round 1 clearly imo. Great performance by Price but Skelton rose 1 or 2 questions.

Skelton jumped on him at the first bell and won the first round giving Price a bit of a black eye. Price gained his composure and came back to stop him in 2nd although the first 2 minutes of that round was even as well.

Honestly? Uninterested. Hopefully he'll delay his quest to win the Lonsdale outright until a decent/worthy challenger emerges.
