I can’t agree with the statement “muscles don’t mean anything” the old saying “You carry fat around, muscles carry you around” was never truer in a sport…..

fury is absolutely garbage. does nothing well, slow, no power, no chin, no defense….he’s just really big. Price destroys him with ease. Fury was almost KO’d by the heavyweight version of malignaggi in Pajkic who has a less than 20% KO rate- pathetic

No Speno, only the clueless would make such a statement. To assume “Im right and any who disagrees is clueless” … is beyond arrogance. I have heard similar statements on ESB so many times only for it to be proven wrong.

Fury is not in the same league as Price . Everytime i have seen fury his defense is awful and someone of simialr height to him will find his head very easily. Any time they meet Price always wins this. Anyone who says different is clueless on Boxing.

If one can become world champ then the other will want to fight but they don’t seem to get that they have to beat Klit to get that and that might not happen for 3-4 years!! they should cash in while they are are yound and fit they would likely make at least a million each they are are to pass it up now imo.

Fury’s doing OK, but he’s still not ready for Price. He needs to fight more often to stay in shape and maintain a psychological edge. Fury could also use an intensive 3-month boxing clinic under someone like Freddy Roach, where he could learn to sit down on his punches and take out opponents with one devastating shot. At 24, time is on Tyson’s side; it would also be better for him financially to face Price in 2014.

…. but we’ll know more of what Price has to offer when he faces Thompson.

I need to see Price take a good shot before I can put my doubts about his chin to aside.

Price has had far too many over-matched opponents ….. the best he has faced was Skelton who is almost 50-years-old. Tony Thompson is a good match up for him ….. but he doesnt carry a big-punch; which is probably why he was chosen to face Price. Up to now Fury has shown a greater desire to test himself. Fury is younger, more battle-hardened, more tested. Price has great potential; but Fury has proven more up to now.

all people that harp on about god and jesus annoy the hell out of me … but if i held that against every boxer out there; they’d wouldnt be many to like.

I think most people are easily fooled by quick knockouts ….. and thats why some people think Price will have an easy time with Fury. In actual fact they are very closely matched. As close to a 50-50 fight as you can get. Right now, i think Fury has a very slight edge over Price.

PRICE VS FURY………..power: price but fury can punch as well, coordination: price much more coordinated, speed: price but fury is not slow he also has quick hands, fitness/preparation: price. just seems to come in better prepared. skill price: experience with quality opponents: fury has a slight advantage once price smashes Thompson this will be even, heart: fury has been tested price has never been pushed except for the first round with skelton Size/height/reach: Both huge about even, composure/focus: price, intimidation: price, fury seems scared of him chin ??????? furyn has been down but has recovered price has never been hurt. Price has many advantages and should initially outbox him then hurt him. Fury may be the test price has not had and cause him problems but it is unlikely. price at least 3 to 1

I would bet on Fury if they’d ever fight or when they’ll fight, i think it’s just a matter of time

Price would land big on Fury early and it would all be over. It`ll be Haye-Enzo all over again – people thought Enzo could make it last test Hayes stamina etc and that would counteract the fact Haye was faster, more accurate and harder punching with better technical skills. Fury could trouble Price in later rounds, but he won`t get there, he is too sloppy.

Pulev-Wlad 2013!!!!

Pulev is going about his bussiness quietly, and making all the right noise in the ring. I think theres more chance of seeing Pulev vs Price or Fury, than there is of seeing Fury vs Price in 2013. To be brutally honest, i think Fury is avoiding Price MAINLY because Fat Mick Henneyburger has told him it will make bigger money in the future. That asside i think Fury isnt really that confident in himself

KOrnerman

I agree Price looked a bit out his comfort zone when Skelton pressured him, if that were Pulev he might be in trouble, that’s the fight I want to see,Price vs Pulev for the Euro.

By the way, Price hasnt exactly blown me away either. He looked like a dynamo smashing Sexton and Mcdermott, but he was always going to do that with those long stiff shots. The way He was backing up in his last fight caused some concern. Had he been facing a harder puncher, he may have got clocked. Hellenius is the weakest of the bunch IMO. He still owes Chisora a rematch

Not going to happen until Fury says so. Fury seems to like talking about it more than doing it. This would be a great fight to see. Price stock will soar if he nails Thompson early. Fury may not look interesting. Haye might come out of the woods and would stop looking for Vitali. Price-Fury 2013 would be nice.

it would make them both serious money they should consider it, they cant wait for Klit to get old that could take another 3 or 4 years.

I wrote the anonymos post a moment ago…….But I’d like to add that muscle is very important in all sports, especially boxing. It does make a massive difference and can be the difference between losing and winning. Try telling an olympic lifter that he’s not fast and explosive. Besides being able to out-muscle your opponent on the inside is very handy if you need to be.
Alot of the old school boxing training is now seen as somewhat dogmatic and in some cases counterproductive

I think that a fight between the two now would be great. It’s not as if a loss would be the end of the road for either fighter, especially Fury due to his age.
Even a loss wouldn’t prevent them from facing each other again in the future when they both (potentially) have world titles. As a massive boxing fan I find it hard to stomach the debate of “let’s wait till they both have titles”. I appreciate the fact that a fighter needs experience before a world class fight and that a fighter can step up in class too soon but these two are ready to go now. Just look at the Groves vs Degale fight. That was brilliant and there’s no reason why they cant enthrall us agian in the future.
I don’t believe boxing is dying but it is losing the casual fan to MMA. Fights should be made at the right time and these two should get it on now!

Fury and Price is close to a 50-50 fight. Fury was about 19 when they faced each other in the amatures ….. sure Price took a close decision but only one guy hit the deck hard … and that was Price. We still havnt seen how Price will react when he gets hit with a good shot. Fury is more battle hardened and i think that gives him a slight edge.

Fury has time on his side..Price at 29 or 30 dosent so much.I would still rather see them meet when one of them has a world belt..ofcourse if that happens.

wont last 5 minutes, Price will blitz him….

That would be a great fight. If Povetkin cannot secure a match with the Klitschkos I would love to see either of these guys in with him later this year or early next year,

I agree that not every heavyweight will have a chiselled physique …. and someone with a few spare tires around his mid-drift can still have extremely good fitness. Muscles dont mean anything … its all about the engine that drives them. Anyway, Fury has been coming in decent shape recently. Fury throws a hell of a lot of shots for such a bit guy, he also has decent movement and hand-speed. Fury is developing well … as is David Price ….. but Fury being only 24 has time on his side …. Price being over 30 does not. I would like to see them fight this year but if it is the year after then so be it.

An ok article but strange for the author to hold the opinion that the Chisora win was a poor performance …… cant work that one out. It wasnt even a close decision.
