Default Price vs Skelton Pushed Forward

Don't know if this has been mentioned already but just to let everybody know the Price vs Skelton card has been moved forward from December 8th to November 30th this also applies to the Dillian Whyte vs John Mcdermott bout.

Earlier the better really. He hardly broke sweat vs Audley so a quick turnaround is good.

Would be a good idea, Flintoff is currently scheduled to be fighting at the M.E.N on the same card as Bradley Saunders. Price vs ***ton & Mcdermott vs Whyte is at Aintree, should be a good weekend.

Not a bad idea. I just hope there are no slip ups and Price wins well.

Skelton should pose a decent threat. I don't rate him highly but he offers something different and he should have some success about Price, so hopefully it'll answer a few questions about Price's mentality, chin, stamina, toughness, inside game etc.. It's the type of fight Price needs at this stage, I think, so whilst Skelton is no world beater, I think it's a good bout. When Wlad was making a name for himself, he fought a comparable opponent to Skelton in Purrity and it all went wrong so if Price can come through this and look good, it'll be a noteworthy win.

That said, I'm not sure how well Skelton will take Price's punches. He's not hard to hit so if Price connects early, we'll get to see how much power he has against a tough opponent. If he gets Skelton out in a couple of rounds, that indicates Price has serious power.

I'm excited about Price's career. I think he's exactly what the heavyweight division needs.

Good news, after he dispatches of Skelton he should fight again in January or February if he wants the British outright, then push on from there.

Not to mention Kevin McBride flattened him recently only for it wrongly to be called a push.
