Not to mention Kevin McBride flattened him recently only for it wrongly to be called a push.
Jesus that was shocking. It must have been right on the solar plexus, otherwise it looks like he just quit for the sake of it. Even if it was bang on the SP I don't understand how it put him down for a 10 count. Awful.

Durability, heart, persistence, toughness and pressure. Watch Purrity against Sanders and Wlad. Him and Skelton aren't identical but there are similarities and Price will be asked the same questions that Wlad was asked.

The stoppage against Pulev was a one off and likely just a very good shot. He's shown toughness since then to suggest it was a one off, rather than him being mentally weak now.

1st round knock out again. If it goes longer I'll be surprised unless Price holds back.

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.

Skelton won't last a round. The once iron chinned fighter has zero punch resistance left!!!

Trying to get it in before Skelton dies of natural causes.

The bias around here is ridiculous, this is a ****ing joke of a fight, cant believe anybody would support this muck.

Fury's win over Gsora shits all over Prices entire resume

Good that price is out again so soon. No point having much of a lay off after such an easy night last time out. Can't see Skelton causing too many problems but he should give price a far better fight than he got out of audley.

Its a waste of time but at least he's active. Skelton was there in case Audley pulled out, prepared to dig them out of a hole if need be, in return he was promised a fight. Its good they have stuck to their word, hopefully will draw a line under the career of Skelton after, he's been a servant but its about time he hung them up.

Skelton wont ask any questions of Price, will just be a few punches for a highlight reel and some TV time to add fuel to the Fury fire

The most pointless fight Price could have taken at this stage of his career. Win and he'll be known as an OAP batterer, lose and he's finished before he's started.

Skeleton.........luckiest British Heavyweight ever as he was chump when British Heavyweight boxing was at its very worse..... FFS he lost to Sprott three fights ago and the two guys he's just fought were fodder. Smell the coffee everyone, this is a bum fight for the fans and a joke. Maloney surprises me as i thought he wasn't into shit opponents. My honest opinion is that Audley would beat Skeleton thats how bad this fight is

Honestly Skeleton won't put up any resistance once he feels Price's right hand. The only thing that he might do different from Audley is get up quicker after the KO and maybe get his fight purse quicker! zzzzzzz

I'm a big Price fan but it's obvious that all these fights are a few, quick and easy defences by Maloney to allow David to keep the Lonsdale belt outright and boost his profile a bit. Get it over with and then move onto the real challenges next year.

Anyway, I'd rather watch Price fight a circus midget than watch Tyson Fury fight blokes who Mick Hennessy has probably pulled out of a local chippy on Channel 5.
