I agree with Tony Thompson that he needs to put on a bit of weight.

Side on, he doesn't look too bad. However from the front he looks quite lanky. I think (as crazy as it sounds) he's almost in too good a shape. However, at almost 30 can he put on the extra muscle and pull it off?

He and his training team should also go and study videos of Wladimir Klitschko before and after being tutored by Steward.

New trainer, new promoter.

Work on his defence since his guard was awful and spend the next year fighting bums again to build his confidence up. Basically start from scratch. He really does need to work on his defence. That's a must.

Hope he can bounce back from this.

Well I would say do what Lennox and Wlad did after getting knocked out. But since Emanuel Steward has passed away. I don't think thats gonna happen. Too bad for Price.

Price should defend his titles against Towers next, then fight a decent lower european level heavyweight and rematch Thompson.

Seriously though, fight a domestic level opponent and win the Lonsdale belt outright. At least he can have that belt.

As Skills pointed out, he got caught during the transition. His footwork and lack of defensive awareness meant he was out of position and open to the right hook. He needs to expand his skills, so maybe go sparring around the world - spend time with the Klitschkos, Haye, etc.

The big problem is the lack of good, rounded contenders to learn from that he won't end up having to fight.

For me he needs to bulk up, looked really lean in there tonight, he should take a look at how Wlad changed his body shot & improved his punch resistance.

I don't know enough about Franny Smith to really criticise his but I'm convinced by him as a coach, his work with Edwards against Satchell was really poor

He missed with a uppercut and had his other hand down when got caught.

It happens, he must learn though!

Just watched it again, he went inside with his left hand down by his waist. **** me. He throws a lazy jab which he paws out. he paws it, then again which results in it dropping to his waist. it shouldnt go that far time especially if youve got a suspect chin. He needs to get that up, its a basic mistake. Close up and in the pocket with your left hand by your waist ....

Had high hopes for Price but I think he's as good as done now.

Chinny and at age 30 theres not enough time to remould him into a more defencive fighter, I really hope I'm wrong.
