    He is a decent short notice opponent if you don't care about Price's health and think this bill justifies a PPV.I dont think it does and so I , not only won't be going to it ,I won't be paying to watch it at home either.
    You've made your choice ,and I've made mine, both our prerogatives .
    Lets resume this after the fight!

    I think Chisora is well capable of crushing Price but maybe hasn't got the motivation. I can see a dull fight where Price freezes up and Chisora plods on in a slow gear.
    I can't imagine Chisora really getting up for this and going into full WAR mode at all.

    Chisora can just about be considered a fringe contender now. Price has never been more than domestic level and never the standout there.

    Ach not near as good an overall match up in Parker in terms of world stage but Price does punch and someone should get KO’d on way or another!

    To be fair he said he's not taking fights that he thinks he's more likely to lose than win. Prices talk always fools me though so probably down in the first

    Hearn reckons the Price announcement added an extra 1000 ticket buys

    Toth has never been stopped, Benn could have some trouble here.

    He's been the distance against some decent'ish competition (far higher than Benns level).

    Could be potentially worth an outside bet, depends if he comes with any kind of ambition.

    Saying that the rest of his record looks quite poor, has beaten mainly boxers with little wins or poor records. Looks shrewd matchmaking on Benns behalf. Sky will say this guy has fought Lerraja and the guy who KOd Hatton on his comeback fight and gone the distance, guaranteed in the commentary. Then compare Benn to them!

    Conor Benn is full of wrath,
    He'll take it out on Laszlo Toth,
    The commentary will kiss his arse,
    And on will go the Conor Farce,

    The fact toth has gone the distance against the decent competition he has faced and only has wins over limited competition with poor records. I'm more inclined to think he will be someone who will look to survive then win.

    Also he's been an opponent for those decent opponents when either they've been relatively unexperience still, or coming not long off a loss.

    Guarantee Sky are going to go down the route that he's taken the guy who KOed Hatton the distance 'so that's the kind of level he's operated at (insert co-commentator here)' cue Adam smith.

    Going the distance doesn't qualify you as a suitable opponent imo.My first question when an opponent is named is .Who has he beat?
    3 wins over debutees and16 over men with losing records.
