Perhaps, but I just think Price needs a quick, easy victory to get his confidence back.

If not Audley then perhaps either go straight for Helenius since honestly, I don't see anything special in Helenius... he's easily beatable by Price and I wouldn't expect him to trouble Price much.

Or, put him up against Kevin Johnson. Johnson is nothing but a walking punchbag, I'd expect price to UD him or, even KO him in the later rounds.

yeah, I agree mate. Chisora-Price/ Fury-Thompson with the winners to fight would be good!

Price getting sparked was always a distinct possibility as we had no idea how he would react to taking a decent shot, he didn't even take a massive shot and went down like a sack of potatoes. They should have had him in with some decent comp instead of Skelton and Harrison and prepared him better, not that it would have made an awful lot of difference.

I think he can come again but ultimately he's sorely lacking in the chin department, people on ESB had called it and I had plenty of disagreements with people on the Fury/Price subject when they were questioning Fury's chin. Given Prices amateur stoppages I always thought his beard was in question but now it's certified, unless he can re invent himself as a Wlad type of style he won't do much in the HW division, everytime he stops up to world level he'd be in serious danger.

He knows he can make 6 figures vs Fury and take his rankings.

If Thompson wants to be paid well, then realistically he shouldn't be asking for it to take place in the States. Both he and Price are unknowns over there, and a fight between them wouldn't sell a fraction of what it sold here. So he shouldn't be that dismissive of coming back here, because it'll give him a payday his own country can't.

Price needs to mach up with feather fisted fighters. Wilder, Williams and Helenius would take him out! Chisora would probably be the best option, a winnable fight. And he'll get more credit too.

Helenius got underrated power, hurt Chisora early on in there fight, for that reason Price shouldn't go near him at this point, where his chin is questionable more than ever!

Helenius is slow and sluggish, but if he connects, Price will go down. Helenius also has a decent chin.

Gotta love Thompson

It pretty much boils down to the fact Price had not been tested prior to this fight, his chin has been questioned by many on here, he hasnt been in against the right opposition.

Didnt se the fight, but I'm sure Fury isnt worried and next fight is Audley v Price re-match, Audley has never lost a re-match!
