    This is actually quite a mismatch, in several areas.

    Size, experience and also skill level. Price is a clear favorite here for me.

    Babic is a journeyman gym fighter helping boxers out with bits of sparring in various gyms, he met Dillian and due to a lucky coincidence was able to turn pro and via his manager get a platform his level of ability does not really warrant.

    So the 'Savage' gimmick was born...

    It's worth pointing out that he is no heavyweight. He's a cruiserweight, and in todays terms not a huge one either. I think if he really had to he could actually fight at light heavy too. Wouldn't be impossible for him. He is trying his luck at this weight as there is far more chance of a good six figure pay day.

    The best way to illustrate how badly he will fare in any competitive fight at HW is by considering how he would do against the top CW's at British level.

    If he dropped down to CW where he should be at Riakporhe, Billam Smith and Chamberlain would all comfortably beat him. I would back the three of them to hurt him towards the mid rounds and stop him too.

    I think he weighed in under 14 stone on the night when he fought Big Shawndell, the latter also weighed in like a a Cruiser for a fight that was bizarrely classed as a Heavyweight match.

    Feels weird to say but it has to be Price for me.

    A confident Price would win without a problem but David seems to be all to aware of his own shortcomings these days.

    This is the only concern id have against backing Price fully

    Where is he at mentally?

    I remain the only one who thinks Price on points. I really think he'd just jab Babic until his enthusiasm to go wild is curbed and a points win is ground out in a 10 rounder.

    Winnable fight for Price. Babic far too upright with zero defence, but you never know with Price.
