I know people must think i dislike guy cos a long time i been saying he's shit but as a man the way he spoke on ringside i have nothing but respect for guy and i wouldn't begrudge him if he won tonight nor would i have a right to....but he's just so stiff and poor it's astonishing how anyone felt he could be a force outside of fighting Latvians.

On Ringside Dallas had a defeatist attitude

When he was offered the fight he needed to think about it. You would think a hungry HW would jump at the chance of a big fight. I think Zack Page has destroyed his confidence.

to be fair the british heavy scene is quite good at the moment. a few years ago when guys like scott gammer were british champ he would of had a shot.

he is big and has power. nobody thinks he is gonna be a world beater. just enjoy it.

in all seriousness if Price doesn't do a job on him tonight you have to question his credentials going forward

Agreed. His attitude reminded me of Jennings before he faced Cotto. I remember him saying "it's going to be a tough job, but i'll go and give it my best". Dallas was the same the other day. He looked beaten already. I wouldn't be suprised to see this over in 1 round.

He didn't exactly ooze confidence though. Maybe that's just him? He looked beaten already to me.

I think Colin's right about his confidence being affected but really and truly Tom doesn't seem a Floyd type ''yeah gonna win this fight, gonna school Price give him a beating in front of his fans' type of talker. Just a hardworking fella who's saved the show and should be applauded for it. Could of hid behind his '0' that he's lucky to have. We all know that some fighters in past and in future have bottled this type of chance.

Yeah he looked beaten already to me but maybe that's just his way and truth be told, he was pretty shit last time out.

Plus the clip of him and Price sparring didn't look very inspiring from a Dallas point of view but then again David Price himself has been respectful saying it was competitive.

That's a fair point. As I said, maybe its just his demeanor and he prefers to do his talking in the ring, as they say. I suppose it's unusual to see a pro boxer appear to be so downbeat before a fight.

I agree with you, i just think he's simple minded guy. He probs just trying to take any pressure of him and put it on Price.

Your other post. Rnd 1 KO for Price?. I think the same. Just think Dallas is easy to hit and will get hurt and it will enter KOTY 2011.

Exactly what i thought he seems very straight ahead in everything he does. Sorta guy that doesn't think about things just smashes through them.

His interview after Page fight ''I was getting bored''. He's got a sorta caveman's approach.

Well, I expect both men know what is going to happen tonight. They've done enough sparring. You can always say 'it was even' and that they were working on things, but at some point its natural to push your level and see who the better man is.

I think Price will nail him early on and that will be that. I hope Dallas at least makes it competitive, but I'm not expecting it. Especially when he looked so pedestrian in his last fight.
