As Dennison said though it is very difficult to say who would win at the moment, as Price hasn't been tested yet.
I don't think they do. Price might have been surprised, but he didn't show he could box off of the back foot or inside. Skelton won the 1st IMO. Price was always in control of the 2nd, but even then he didn't show he could fight off the back foot or on the inside. He made no adjustments.

yes he did, he started utlize his jab more effectively getting it working earlier which kept skelton at bay.

Skelton used his head for the entire first round, should have had a point deducted.

He wasn't that bad with the head. Fury didn't have the same trouble with Rogan, a similar fighter to Skelton IMO.

Rogans shit and caused tyson a few problems himself and went five rounds. To be honest I can kind of see where your coming from with your points of view, but I dont think were going to agree on this.

IMO Skelton had more success Vs Price than Rogan Vs Fury. We were having a good debate earlier but now it's going stale lol.

Once Fury had adapted to fighting southpaw he battered poor Rogan,Rogan had moments with Fury because Fury allowed it to happen.

I know lol, it's difficult to debate any further because Price hasn't faced any real tests. I rate both of them highly and think this year will be interesting as I expect both of them to have some real testing fights which will tell us a lot more about both of them. however I see Price and fury making relatively easy work of Thompson and cunningham respectively, so were going to have to wait for a bit.

We have two of the best,potentially,HW this country has seen in a long while,exciting times!
If Fury continues to improve and fine tune everything he'll be a world beater,not even joking.

Nice one mate glad you liked it. Need to get back into the blog, went a bit quiet with Christmas and that. I think Price and Fury have the potential to be world champs. Not just saying that as a Brit either.

I think Cunningham deserves the April date with Wlad for his Adamek showing.

I'd say get Fury or Price in with Wach who looked half decent against Wlad, in so much as he can take a shot. Alas I believe he's been on the drugs and faces an enforced lay off.
