Wow so you consider Khan, Ortiz and Berto success stories? This is no longer a valid conversation.

Amir Khan is a huge success story, multi millionaires usually are.

True at a level, he got filthy rich on hype and he has skill but no heart for a boxer, I like that he will fight anyone but boxing wise Khan is not a success.

I'd disagree, he obviously has heart or he wouldn't get up when he gets knocked down heavily. He just can't take the big shots.

Winning a world title alone is a success story, if Price were to win the world heavyweight title that would be a success story. I just dont understand your comment about him being about a 29 year old brit whats wrong with that?

How long does he have left, when people tell me Donaire or Gamboa is a future great, I just don't think a 29 year old should be the future. I think most boxers would take Khans life but prospect of the year to me means you should be the future so if your fighting an undersized Molina that's not a success, this guy was calling Mayweather a chicken chasing a fight.

Prospect usually refers to how long they have fought or how many fights which in Price's case would qualify him as a prospect, but i see where you are coming from it's a shame he isnt a few years younger he should still have a good 5 or so years before he starts to decline but the likes of Fury who is 24 years old have alot more time to improve and more of a future.

I misused word cause I think Mexican fighters who take a beating are more heart than chin.

Price is a really solid HW prospect, the best we've seen in a few years.

29 isn't exactly 'old' for a HW though...

We`ll see when his chin gets tapped.So far,he`s obviously fought noone and if he does fail,he`ll be one of the biggest hypes in the sport.
