Default Re: David Price is Finished

Just re-watched the entire fight before commenting, and he was absolutely gassed, completely gone by the beginning of the 5th round. That is absolutely criminal. The other thing was him not at all using the jab, which was something which he should have used and should be using in all of his fights.

I see no way back as he has zero ring IQ. Two knock out defeats in a row and not many fighters can come back from that to be a champio,

Lot of sense in your first paragraph,but he's already a British champion,with maybe not world but possibly Euro titles to come.He probably thinks its better than putting his hands down S bends and scrambling around in shitty lofts.

As a heating engineer/plumber I can confirm this to be true.

Mate I can honestly say Id rather be a ex British Champion with a shit chin boxing for a living than be up in a loft, in this heat, rolling about in that rock wall shit, fitting a ****ing boiler.

Bill, let us hope David reads your inspirational words and hits 'play' on his Rocky training montage CD and resolves to stick with the boxing.

Stupid sentiment. He's still incredibly green as a pro, and still has ridiculous power. As long as you can still go out there and beat top fighters you are not finished.

First fight all Thomson "soaked up" were a few jabs and half-hearted punches that wouldn't floor anybody. Second fight he got hit proper by Price twice, went down once from a shot that didn't connect fully since Thompson was moving back and almost went down the second which again didn't connect properly.

Price has his faults but power isn't one of them.

You must be insane to think Price doesn't have power, Price almost had him out of there in the 2nd round and would have if it didn't happen at the end of the round, it took Wlad 6 rounds to stop Thompson, as said above Price has his flaws but power certainly isn't one of them, he's gotta be one of the biggest punchers in the division.

It's rumoured that Price will be out against Sprott in the Autumn. After that provided he has worked on his stamina/jab/ringcraft he should be fighting someone like a Helenius who is beatable.

Good fight for Price right now, Sprott should take him a few rounds.

Price should not have much trouble rebuilding. He just needs to stay away from awkward southpaws.
