Default Price KO'd by Thompson History repeats

I am mad I did not place a wager on this fight I thought Price was making a mistake fighting Tony based off of Thompson s losses to Klitschko and the knock on price is his chin which is poor. I was rooting for the younger guy for some fresh blood but should have gone with my instincts....there have been many young guys that were ruined in the past by bad managers, trainers and match ups such as Willie Dewitt from Canada vs Bert Cooper

Now Tyson Fury is fighting Steve Cunningham is this the right fight, is the risk worth the reward?

Until I saw Thompson's weight gain, I was going around telling everyone he was a much better fighter than given credit for, even at an advanced age, having started very late. But when I saw he gained so much, I figured the recipe was complete to have a cash-in performance and that's what a lot of fighters do. They deliberately show up fat to let the guy they're going to lay down for know they didn't get "the real" them. But, then this happens. Price is a good kid with enormous brute strength and a long background in boxing. There's no reason to write him off because he got a helping of "step-up surprise" at the fighters' cafeteria. The funny thing is this was the right move for him. And Cunningham is the right move for Fury. This is what they're supposed to do so they know it's time to attempt a title shot. He's not, yet. Maybe Fury is. Guys like Wach were missing fights like this.

I'm in total shock.

Looking back Thompson has only really lost to wlad and has dominated pretty much everyone else.

Price is known as a good boxer with a bad chin but today he seemed massively over confident with his hands down exchanging uppercuts. Honestly seemed like he didnt give Thompson a second thought, never adapted to him being a southpaw and didn't look overly at any decent level of defence.

Wlad battered Thompson in the rematch and everyone wrote Tony off as shot. But here he's just knocked out a top 15 fighter in emphatic fashion.

I think price will come again but the exciting gung ho striker is likely dead now.

TONY!

I thought he'd lost his soul. Coming off a devastating loss, fat...but I was wrong.

So glad. Tony is a damn stud.

Can people see the difference between Waldo and the wannabes?

Congrats to Tony. I love old pro tricks.

really..only so many active american heavyweights older than 40...... I actually how it down to a few names as well. Another clue is his one thread about having a cold before a upcoming fight....

You messed up with Price, it was definitely worth the risk. Now, for Fury, I'm not so sure. Fury's opposition has been pretty decent, he has passed harder tests than Price, and despite the fact that Cunningham has championship level experience, he can't punch. I expect Fury to beat him.
