Price needs to be out again in January & I suggest he takes a fight in Canada, the USA or mainland Europe. He’s gotta fight the winner of Richard Towers/Lucas Browne, but that’s not likely until March. These 2 round Ko’s are all well & good if he’s fighting once a month & as Commonwealth champion he has the oppertunity of fighting @ the likes of Australia, Canada, Africa & NZ.Posted December 3, 2012 5:57 am
CANT SAY YOUR LYING WHITE IS RIGHT. AND TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH i THOUGHT i NEVER SEE IT. ANY WAY IT TOOK THE LEGITIMACY OF THAT STUPID GREAT WHITE HOPE OR GREAT WHITE DOPE TERM AND IM HAPPY ABOUT THATPosted December 3, 2012 12:23 am
never saw price and wish him well but isnt time for him to step the level of compitition even a little?Posted December 1, 2012 10:31 pm
TARK go to the EYE doctor.Posted December 1, 2012 8:15 pm
Boxtradamus…. I never knew you were an idiot before but this last video you produced proves it.. Calzaghe threw as many legal scoring punches in that time frame as anybody could hope.. Nowhere in your video do you see a blizzard of slaps with the palms of the glove by JC… As long as he’s hitting with the top of the glove, even if it’s wth the 2nd knuckle, it’s NOT the palm, and it’s a scorng surface.. If he slaps with an open glove with the palm it’s NOT to be scored—and he didn’t do that. Landing a punch with the second knuckle still constitutes a legal blow. Slapping with the palm is NOT legal. If he used the palm of his glove to score a knockdown they wouldn’t have counted it.
Or are you aware of the rule that states back handed blows and slaps with the palm of the glove are NOT to be scored???Posted December 1, 2012 8:11 pm
Hey LOOK!!!! LOOK!!!! at the Ward thread on Page 5!!! TARK has been proven to be as blind as a FOOTBALL. LMFAO!!Posted December 1, 2012 7:17 pm
Lenin : building Price up ! with Sexton, Harrison and Skelton ? Why not rematch Helenius ?Posted December 1, 2012 6:23 pm
HHLondon : First of all who is talking titlefight ?, its about Price fighting old and shot fighters. sure wlad had more than 30 fights before he fought for a title, was he somehow avoiding a titlefight ?. At this moment Price is fighting at c- level at best, and its time to move up to the next level.Posted December 1, 2012 6:19 pm
HH London , Price is 29 , I think Wlad was champion of the world at age of 24. He defeated Chris Byrd . Price never fought anybody like Byrd yet and he’s 29 !Posted December 1, 2012 6:06 pm
Lenin..Agreed.Funny how some people are mocking Price for not taking the guy out in 1 round and for getting caught with a couple of punches.But Price didnt buckle or get rattled(but now no talk of his jaw being bad isnt that funny)Plus Skelton is a seasoned fighter that knows his way around a ring he could land on anybody for a short time.Didnt W.K. get caught with the slow moving unseasoned Wach?Yes Price has some things to work on but he is without a doubt a fighter to watch…and could be a champ in 2-3 years.Posted December 1, 2012 4:59 pm
I like how carefully they build up Price. Good job by his management. Price should fight a few more seasoned boxers and SLOWLY take on better fighters. He’s got time, in 2 years time with 6 to 8 more fights he should call out the hw champ (whoever that will be in 2014). Don’t rush the guy, he’s got a great future.Posted December 1, 2012 3:41 pm

Nive victory for David Price on the paper alright, but Price still have a lot to be tested in before he can be a major player in the game. Former British, Commonwealth champion and world title challanger Matt Skelton was once a good contender but he is 45 years old now and is way away from what he once was in the ring and Price needs to be more tested now,Posted December 1, 2012 3:38 pm
Robot.. Pulev is the current Euro champ.Posted December 1, 2012 3:06 pm
HH Wlad picked up a bunch of smaller crappy belts fairly early though. I forget, where does Price stand in the Euro rankings? Is it Fury who has the Euro HW title?Posted December 1, 2012 2:37 pm
Price has time to grow as a boxer and he should take his time. It’s not like he is a 40 y.o. desperado looking to make some retirement money. Fight with Wlad would most likely result in a very damaging loss if he fought him now. So why should he, unless he feels really adventurous.Posted December 1, 2012 2:31 pm
Decker, Wlad never fought for a world title until he’d over 30+ fights, so please, why does Price to get a move on?
Stop talking nonsense! Price doesn’t to do anything, but stay busy which is the plan.Posted December 1, 2012 2:04 pm
Irish Mike Perez would beat PricePosted December 1, 2012 1:36 pm
If Skelton throw his punches with conviction he could had knocked price out in the 1st 5 secondsPosted December 1, 2012 1:33 pm

Mark my words, there will never be a Scouse heavyweight champion of the world.Posted December 1, 2012 1:17 pm
Kubrat Pulev fought Skelton in his 5ft fight, Price fought him in his 15th fight. Price and his team cant have much confidence in him with this kind of matchmaking.Posted December 1, 2012 1:11 pm
HHLondon: I think that 18 months is rational because by that point Vitali will be retired and Wlad will be near 39. Aside from the Klits, this monster will steamroll anyone in the division.Posted December 1, 2012 1:00 pm
HHLondon, you’re right about (Mike) Tyson.
However, you’re not carrying the day in this thread. Don’t know if you really are a Brit, but, using one of my fav Brit expressions, the dominant theme in this thread is that Price needs to “get on with it”.
Enough with Lonsdale, Bombsdale, Whateverdale Belt. He’s 29 and Commonwealth champ. I’m not saying he should fight a legit top 10 HW next week, but WTF is he fighting fossils like Skelton?Posted December 1, 2012 11:52 am
Price beating up an elderly boxer like Skelton is not really going to impress anybody. The Price fans club might be giddy but it stops there.Posted December 1, 2012 11:24 am
Fury is better then any Heavyweight on this planet he will be king soonPosted December 1, 2012 10:24 am
Price has no inside game. He must use his jab to keep opponents off him or develop any kind of inside game. Also his defence isn’t good enough and he seems flat footed at times. He has raw power and decent hand speed but nothing more.
I believe no one can beat Wladimir Klitschko right now… and I am surprised that Price was unable to finish Skelton in the first round.Posted December 1, 2012 7:03 am
fury has the same as price fought bums but fury should have 1 defeat on his rec aginst john mcdermott both fighting crap fightersPosted December 1, 2012 6:18 am
Price had all that amateur experience and is still moving along slow, I don’t believe what Maloney says a out 650.000 cos I doubt very much he as that sort of moneyPosted December 1, 2012 5:15 am
What’s the difference between Skelton and Price? Skelton is old crap, Price is young crap. The whole ‘fight’ was crap.
PGGC, Shut up, Wlad can’t take a shot, hence Manny coaching him behind a jab and fighting to his advantages. What is it with these morons that think that Price needs to make the same mistakes as Lewis and Wlad to earn their “i’ve never been to a fight, let alone sparred or stood in the ring”, respect?Posted December 1, 2012 3:33 am
You’re not listening. He wants a Lonsdale Belt, He wants to own one. You have to earn one. He’s not saying, I’ll do both Klitschko’s on the same night. He’s said, I want to own a Lonsdale belt outright. He has to defend the title. He hasn’t got to step up. Just fight the ranked fighters who are licensed, up for it, or not in the jungle. When will you listen?Posted December 1, 2012 3:27 am
Tyson’s props are earned by age/worldtitle/win and not depth of the division or comp.Posted December 1, 2012 3:04 am
Hh London and decker — both price and furry are good talents furry fought a better comp because he started earlier than price and price so far gas shown great skills and good power and he looks very promising!
I’ll tell you now and stand by my bet. Price don’t get beat! He’s got it all and his biggest asset, is his humility!Posted December 1, 2012 3:01 am
Again with the apples and oranges Decker. Wilders had how many pro fights? Fought who? In 25 fights? What’s he actually won?
HHL, you seem to have lots “invested” in Price. Sure he may win a share of the HW title some day. So Fury has been KD by £50 a night doorman? Doesn’t that describe Price’s (like Wilders) comp so far? All in all you’re ok to go a few rounds with… let’s see if you stand by the kid after he takes an unexpected loss !
Btw, I analyze all sorts of data for a little US business that goes by DOD ; )Posted December 1, 2012 2:47 am
Meh, 29 witha decent am pedigree is not too old and considered prime territory. How old are the Klits???Posted December 1, 2012 2:42 am
Meh, Haye puts bottles on seats. He ain’t in the equation, he’s in the jungle having his Aris rubbed. Neither Fury nor Price deserve a shot at either Klit and this is an extension of how bad the HW scene is that one is getting stick for calling out his domestic equal and foe, while that foe is considered #3 by the WBC off the back of Rogan, Pavick Johnson in an eliminator.
Decker, The kids had “15″ fights and believe it or not, he has been hit. I recall many a HW great siting on their ass, multiple times over a career, but it’s Price’s duty to lay down inside 15 fights to prove what? He wobbles? He can’t take a shot?
Ol’ boy, HHLondon WTF is wrong w/posting “An Arreola or a Wach might give Price a test”. You act like I’m dissing Price.
At least Arreola took a beating vs Vitali for many rounds, same for Wach vs Wlad. We hardly know what Price will have in the tank after 6 rounds vs real comp… never mind what his chin is made of. So are you a janitor in London?Posted December 1, 2012 2:26 am
Tark, Areola or Wach won’t teach a novice anything. Price would learn more on the heavy bag. Seriously, Wach and Areola? Wach can’t box and Areola’s at best a 3 rnd spar. You’re still hanging off Khan’s heavy bag!Posted December 1, 2012 2:23 am
Tark, Areola or Wach won’t teach a novice anything. Price would learn more on the heavy bag. Seriously, Wach and Areola? Wach can’t box and Areola’s at best a 3 rnd spar. You’re still hanging off Khan’s nuts FFS!Posted December 1, 2012 2:22 am
Meh, you don’t think Mitchell will be back stronger now he’s been beat? Without the zero? Too much emphasis on the 0, particularly for todays limited names.Posted December 1, 2012 2:19 am
Meh, How is it high risk for a limited fighter like Fury who’d get less for getting battered by a Klit?
KL says…. “Vitali, Mcline & Adamek all had over 40 fights before they fought Arreola” … LOL.. They were OLD TIMERS.. They averaged about 37 years old and would have fought Arreola at any time.. Jenniings would love to fight Arreola and he has 15 or 16 fights.. They’ve been matching BJ tough and he’s been training his ass off and working a full time job.. You get better by fighting though competitive fights that force you to train hard and fight at your highest level.. Crap fights make you feel disinterested as Hell.. You get more out of fighting 12 rounds with Arreola or Wach than you do fighting 15 minutes with six or seven 40-year-old Matt Skettons, Audley Harrison’s, and Tony Thompson’s..
It’s one thing to match your fighter carefully. It’s another thing to get chicken fat on him.Posted December 1, 2012 2:08 am
Hey Ernie, we do seem agree in this topic…
Ol’ London must be a relative of Price ; )Posted December 1, 2012 1:53 am
Price goes to the body..great.A forgotten art by alot of the big guys.When and if he gets in some trouble the body shots will pull him out of the fire when the time comes..its a great weapon to have.A nd yes IF Fury and Price make it to the world title realm thats when I would like to see them square off…think of the media..hype..money..glitter that would be involved.Posted December 1, 2012 1:53 am
Meh, not because of VK, WK or Fury.
Haye can sell a fight, not the other three.Posted December 1, 2012 1:52 am
Meh, Fury don’t earn 5mil. He don’t earn 2.5, nor 1.5 and neither are K2 giving him 1, .8.7.6 or .5.
£650 000 is Fury’s best purse, yesterday, tomorrow or next year!
Let’s not forget, according to Fury/Hennessy Price ducked £125 000 six months ago?
No! … Really?Posted December 1, 2012 1:50 am
Meh, You’re misinterpreting on both levels. Six months = 2 fights in reality. One domestic defense, doesn’t = Klitschko next. Not sure what the 650k means to be honest? Klits fight for RTL, average 3mil, plus the gate does not equal five in any currency.
Anonymous — who showed “skillmanship” against klitchko lately???
It’s Me, Ernie
Decker knows what’s up…Posted December 1, 2012 1:27 am
Saying Wach could beat young up and comers because he was a punching bag for 12 rds. is misleading.Its like saying Cobb after the beating he took from Holmes because he went 15rds. was a legit contender in the day.Wach is 32 fought no one legit or prime except k-bro. and showed to be unskillfull.Did anyone find a high degree of skillmanship in Wach??? Never mind people try to tear down the guys K-bros. fight so they dont look as good overall.I think more people try to build up the guys k-bros. fight to make them look like gods….but I like the k-bros. they are great champs but Ill call a spade a spade.Posted December 1, 2012 12:29 am
Pitbull, 18 months! Price/Maloney’s words. 18 months, they’ll be ready. Modest and rational! They ain’t calling out Klitschko’s. They got a plan.Posted December 1, 2012 12:23 am
Even Mason (God rest his soul) had the bollocks to fight Lewis and stick it all on the line! Fury is alone in dumping that belt in the bin and thinking he’s earned a world title shot against the either Klitschko after 20 fights and the likes of Rogan, Pajick or JohnsonPosted December 1, 2012 12:21 am
This dude can bang but he has a long way to go before I start singing his praises. That said, he is a likeable fella who I don’t mind rooting for each time out.Posted December 1, 2012 12:15 am
Price hasn’t got to prove nothing outside the UK until he’s done what needs to be done.
Decker, Skelton was #5, Fury don’t want it, Haye’s in the jungle, Chisroa’s unlicensed. Price wants a Lonsdale Belt? WTF is the lad supposed to do? He defended the belt against the next ranked fighter unlike Fury who threw it in the bin.Posted December 1, 2012 12:15 am
I know I’m not then only one that read a 45 year old “Skeleton”Posted December 1, 2012 12:07 am
Plenty of guys out there durable enough to give Price a few rounds without being too much of a threat, but he is not choosing to fight them is he…And this bull about him only having 15 fights, how many did Chisora have…Posted November 30, 2012 11:55 pm
Hey London, don’t get your knickers all bunched up.
Does Price have a chin? stamina? Who the hell knows. An Arreola or a Wach might give Price a test.
So far Price is the Brit version of Wilder LOLPosted November 30, 2012 11:51 pm
Decker, Shut up. You have no understanding of the British domestic game.Posted November 30, 2012 11:09 pm
Exactly what I expected for Price v Skelton – a quick stoppage. Fury is advancing at a faster pace and will have a much better resume if he can beat Johnson.
Price needs to stop w/the fossils and has beens who never were (Audley). Agree w/others below that soon he needs to fight an Arreola or a Wach, some HW that can give him many rounds.Posted November 30, 2012 10:56 pm
FA, I only ever called Khan and the dog and pony show out. I love Price, he has a good pedigree, unlike Fury, who like Khan, has the wrong people about him and will ruin his career in the long run. Hennessy is the very poor mans Oscar and let’s not forget how many people knew who Froch was until he unloaded him. I’m still hoping to take your money off you FA when your boy Gomez fights Gavin for unified honors. The winner, gets to post HHLondon/Fight Afficiando in Vegas, drunk and broke! Billy Joe Saunders is another British great that’s on his way up and will do damage. Quigg. These are boys doing it the hard way, no hype, just hands and smarts ;-)Posted November 30, 2012 10:22 pm
who’s next ? Holyfield ?Posted November 30, 2012 9:44 pm
HHLondon it’s been awhile good to see you’re supporting a British fighter instead of bagging on them. Do you like Fury as well? I prefer Price. Been following him since the Olympics.Posted November 30, 2012 9:31 pm
We just saw what happened to a fighter being hyped up and stepped up too soon in Mitchell. Price is 15/0, doing the domestic route and looking decent with every fight. There’s absolutely no rush and he’s coming along nicely. 18 months is the target and he’s on course. One more defense of the Lonsdale and he can move on to European level. It’s all good!Posted November 30, 2012 9:16 pm
“has beens and never beens do not look good on yer c.v . and am afraid there will be a shock instore for the pair of em if they dont have a few fights across the pond.” Yup because the USA is where its at in 2012 at heavyweight…Posted November 30, 2012 8:48 pm
Agree with HHLondon regarding Price’s comp. He’s at a decent level and is stepping it up gradually. Wilder on the other hand has way more fights and is smacking down drunken bums. So Price scored a KO in the 2nd and they complain took a shot in round 1? GTFO.Posted November 30, 2012 8:43 pm
maybe rocky bilbao wil make a comeback, as thats the level both price and fury are fighting at , has beens and never beens do not look good on yer c.v . and am afraid there will be a shock instore for the pair of em if they dont have a few fights across the pondPosted November 30, 2012 8:41 pm
Cj- I agree with you about wach…. This wach will beat most of these so called up and coming talents…
If price fights Thompson next it will really be not only a test but I think he will be lucky if he wins … Thompson is one of the most underrated heavyweights out there … Just because he lost to klitchko they think he is a bum, Emanuel steward didn’t think that …
Anonymous-Wach is a joke? Let time tell. It was his first loss and could be punched by a buss and not go down because he got punched by the most current devestating one punch knock out puncher in Wlad. Dont trust me just look at the history. Wach is limited but Wach could batter and get to many more skilled boxers other than the Klits. Wach is no joke and has one loss to the current heavyweight champ in his prime.Posted November 30, 2012 8:22 pm
Maybe he should fight Tony Tucker or Pinklon Thomas next.Posted November 30, 2012 8:19 pm
Just as I predicted!!!! I am the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born!!!Posted November 30, 2012 8:13 pm
People make me laugh, they’re never satisfied and even when the questions answered, they still move the goalposts.
Another fight another KO. I like that Price is staying busy now. Keep it up. Says he wants to fight Tony Thompson in the US and I hope he does.Posted November 30, 2012 8:10 pm
It’s Me, Ernie
Agreed.Posted November 30, 2012 7:57 pm
Why are some wanting Price to fight Arreola?
Fighting Skeltons was a waste of time. And he isnt developing himself this way. Must be strange being 29 years old and still not going enywhere.Posted November 30, 2012 7:54 pm
I’d have liked to of seen Price fighting Fury’s opponent ‘Kingpin’, lets see what happens there. If Johnson turns up with his A game it could be a very difficult night for Fury. If it’s close at all I’d like to see Price have a crack but if Fury wins convincingly then I’d match these guys up in a big football stadium mid to late next year providing they come through their next couple of fights. I’m liking Price though, he seems a good finisher with power but needs to tighten up the D and get stretched a little longer by his next opponent, see how his stamina can hold up and if he can keep the power later on in fights.Posted November 30, 2012 7:45 pm
Price must improve his defensive skills. He got hit flush by Skelton, imagine what guys with real HW power could do to him. I thought Price was the truth, but I’m not so sure now. Would like to see him fight Tyson Fury.Posted November 30, 2012 7:35 pm
Not being critical, but if i was prices team id want to put him in with someone durable enough to at least make price go a full 12 rounds.Posted November 30, 2012 7:28 pm
It’s Me, Ernie
Big Price fan here, hoping the best for him. Since he hasn’t gone twelve, ten, or even eight rounds in his career yet with someone with a pulse, someone tough, resilient and hits like a mule such as Arreola could be a big test, and a real nightmare.Posted November 30, 2012 7:24 pm
Meh see my comment below.
Tark…No way should he fight Wach..Wach is a human punching bag with zero skills.The only thing Wach would do is last a little longer(and thats maybe)Price would learn nothing from this nor would he have to dig in.Agreed Price needs rounds but with a guy who will help him in the long run..someone where he would have to dig in abit and teach him about ringmanship maybe where he would have to switch to plan b.He dosent need to go from older has-beens to younger never-beens…Wach is a club fighter nothing more.Posted November 30, 2012 7:08 pm
Tark, whilst we all like to see Price in a tough fight, you gotta remember he’s only had 15 fights, so he’s doing okay……give him another 4 fights then you could make the case that Price needs to fight tougher prospects…………..I mean look at Boystov, 31 fights and still not step up his level.Posted November 30, 2012 7:05 pm
Nice win for Price Skelton needs to retire.Posted November 30, 2012 7:05 pm
Price has to stop fighting old men.. He has about 39 rounds or so and badly needs rounds. It looked like he wanted to get a few in with Skelton–but nothing doing. Not with this caliber of opponent who just can’t absorb punches anymore.
He should fight somebody like Arreola who is no threat to beat him, but can go 12 rounds. Another good opponent is Mariusz Wach.. He’ll suck up David’s thunder like a sponge. But NOT Tony Thompson … Please.Posted November 30, 2012 6:50 pm
Price has the tools…its just going to be in time when everything comes together…Posted November 30, 2012 6:49 pm
Thompson-Price fight 2013!Posted November 30, 2012 6:38 pm
Ive a feeling Price is gona be the new Enzo Mac…………….
tony tompson is abig step up for price…thats gonna be good fightPosted November 30, 2012 6:17 pm
Decent win but this is a 45 year old man. Announced tony thompson next for pricePosted November 30, 2012 6:05 pm
He got buzzed I thoughtPosted November 30, 2012 6:02 pm
Easy win but got hit to much for mePosted November 30, 2012 6:01 pm
