Monte Barrett. Highly thought of former World title challenger.

Nikolay Valuev. World HW champ and the tallest and greatest weight ever seen from all the divisions combined. Giant. Can't be knocked down.

John Ruiz. Former World champ. World title fight. beat Holyfield easily quite often.

Audley Harrsion/ European champ. Former Olympic gold medal hero. World title fight.

Klitschko. Unification World title fight. At least 4 belts on the line.

Chisora. Unlucky to lose last World title fight. Beat top 4 Helenius.


When we factor in as well that Froch is only about an inch shorter than Hayemaker it becomes even more obvious. Haye could easily cut weight like Froch too if he wanted but that's not how David rolls, David is after the big prize and has his eye on the ball.



What you saying haye should fight at SMW

Comparing a charlatan (primarily) like David to a true warriour like Froch in terms of their comparative bodies of work is borderline insanity.

Forgot about him! Fury would stop him in a similiar fashion to Price nowadays I reckon, maybe not as quick, but just as brutal.

I can go on and on, boxing is the only sport where you can avoid the best and be champ.

Unless you're Martin Adams........

Actually, would Price be the first guy Fury would face who is of equal size?

The closest any of Fury's opponents came to matching his size was Scott Belshaw (10-1 at the time) he stood 6'7 to Fury's 6'9 . . . . of course Belshaw was pretty much shit, since losing to Fury hes fought a total of 4 times and lost every time

Fury - Price common opponents =

Daniil Peretyatko ( Fury RTD 2, Price PTS 6 )
John Mcdermott ( Fury PTS 10, TKO 9, Price TKO1 )

I dont think Price/Fury will be as one sided as most people believe. Niether fighter is used to giving up size in fights (Price giving up 1 inch to fury) and although Price is more technically sound, Fury has shown more adaptability in adversity and has improved more defensively and stylistically

It is an interesting fight in which either man could lose however it seems to be Price who wants it and Fury who doesnt

Why would he fight a heavy handed prospect who hasn't proven anything in the ring at this point? It's risky, and if he wins, so what? David Price best win is against Sam ****ing ***ton.

Either promoter would be an idiot to put these two prospects up against each other.

Exactly

Like it or not Fury's best win is against one of the most famous boxers in the world at this moment in time: Dereck Chisora.

Price's marquee win is against Sam ***ton who currently has just over 800 twitter followers. Slightly more than I do!

Fury REALLY doesn't genuinely need Price atm.

Only thing Fury could smash in regarding ***ton, is his backdoors..

Serious note, Fury is garbage, what do people think he actually has? He has little to no ability. And the only reason he's heard of is because of how weak the HW division currently is.

He's a cash cow, fight bums, get himself a title shot at Wlad. Milk it. He doesn't stand a much of, if any of a chance against any top twenty HW's.

McDermott shook Fury, yes it was near the beginning of his career. But Price blew him out convincingly...towards the beginning of his career.

Fury could get a minor trinket, a European fighter at best.

Price will challenge for world honors, however I doubt he'll ever be champion, as I have worries regarding his chin. But he's without doubt a more accomplished fighter already, and will achieve a considerably more..

What on earth is wrong with boxing, or TV Channels attitudes towards the sport. Boxing fair enough its not football, but there is a substantial market for the sport. If it gets exposure and TV organisations invest and just get behind the sport. How the **** can David Price, not have a contract with a broadcaster...? Ether its the promoters that are just plain corrupt and greedy, or its something much more deeper.

It's as if all the TV organisations ignore the sport. Its as if they are trying to just erase it from sporting culture. I am talking about simply things like seeing the sport covered on the news..? Its just really pissing me off.

Having no TV for Hatton's stable and David Price is a pretty sad indictment on the state of boxing at the mo'.

This proves that you should never burn bridges; Hatton and Maloney have both had issues with VVarren in the past, how they'd both love to be on BN now.
