THERE IS NO SHOCK HERE FOR ME… I was the only one here to say Thompson will ko price (read my comment below) and I was 100% sure that will happen because Thompson is the most underrated hw and price was to green to take him do early in his carrier !thompson in my opinion still the top hw and even his record shows that he only lost to klitchko .

Wlad would KO Price in 5 and Fury in 7.

I rate Fury above Price. His resume buries Price, who is just now trying to get off the domestic level.

PRICE THE HEIR APPARENT . VITALI BETTER RETIRE SOON AND WLADS DAYS ARE NUMBERED. THE KBROS WILL HAVE A FEW MORE FIGHTS WITH MORE SHORT FAT HEAVIES OR BLOWN UP CRUISERS BUT THEY WILL STAY AWAY FROM MEN THEIR SIZE WHO CAN BANG. WACH WAS CRAP AND WENT THE DISTANCE AS WAS HOFFMAN. THEY ARE LUCKY THEY DID NOT FACE VALUEV. FURY AND PRICE ARE TOO DANGEROUS. EVEN THE FAKE WILDER IN 2 OR SO YEARS WILL BE TOO DANGEROUS. CHANGING OF THE GUARD

Hoping Price will end some confusion by seriously dominating The Tiger with an early KO. Bye bye Tony . . .

It’s really amusing how some diehard sour grapes dimwits , STILL question Vitaly’s
injuries ! Trying to show up Vitaly by bringing up the flaky Toe Fairy as a comparison ,
is really lame ! And Lenny didn’t have to time to complain about his injuries , he was too
busy running away from getting another beating from Vitaly !

WPWW – Typical American…expecting me to fight in the US! I’d expect Canelo and Price to come to me as I’m clearly the main event for you!

Wow do you guys need someone to spell it out? Thompsons an OLD fighter who has begun selling his name to the sport, he’s not coming to win… Anyone with half a brain KNEW he was getting done in by Wlad… There is no intrigue in this bout…

mike

confused by comments on here , all fighters in history early on in there career fight older road warriors to hone there skills , price is building up nicely and with honor , Tyson fury needs stop avoiding price , how can you harp on about deserving a world shot when you haven’t fought and beaten domestic rivals ???

David Price is too good, who can beat him, no one, he will wreck every opponent he fights.

The voice of reason

This is an easy win for price. No disrespect intended to thompson but, apart from his knowledge and elusivness he doesnt bring that much to the table in terms of power.and at this stage of his career is quite harmless really. This was a very good move by frank maloney – it actually looks better than it really is! Price by 3 or 4 rounds no problem. But in all honesty, i dont think this fight proves much really

christov

Why is it that every opponent a Klitschko fights is considered dangerous, but as soon as someone else fights them, the opponent is considered washed up, out of shape,just in it for the money,an old man,etc? Is it because Kbros fanboyz are so worried that Price will crush Thompson in style sooner than the 6 rounds Wlad laboured with him? Just like when Haye SPARKED Chisora in style, when Vitali couldn’t put a dent in him over 12 rounds? What’s that? Vitali was injured? Again? Just like the Byrd fight…. I NEVER heard Lennox come out with ANY excuse for an off night or a loss.Price to DEMOLISH Thompson once he figures him out.And who’s Wlad fighting next? Pianeta? Who?

Thompson = fat. He’s just in this for the paycheck.

Posted February 23, 2013 3:59 am

Wlad is the best right now, the best out there. Shame he only wants to fight guys like Fez and Jenninngs. I think Price, Pulev and Fury would give him a very hard night.

Everyone here thinks Thompson is an esay fight for price , let me tell you something , Thompson will stop price and you heard it here !! Remember this post!

so in 8 months he went from contender to bum? lmao

nameless you should be noiseless thompson is older then when wlad fought him. and wlad has softened him up . by koing him twice thompson is 40 now will never be considered for a title fight again. He has already stated he hates boxing and is just in it to feeed his family . So more then likely he has not prepared for this fight the way he would for atitle fight with wladire klitchko . He realizes his days are numbered in the ring . yea and I dont think price would have faced thompson in 2008 . and I belive thompson isnt the guy in 2013 that he was in 2008.your so blinded by your hatered of the klitchko you talk foolish

Ned…I agree with you,except he wont be over the hill in 3 yrs.Price was moved pretty slow hasnt been in wars he dosent take alot of shots so far because hes sloopy.Hes always in great shape watches his diet stays healthy.Because of these things he should have a long shelf life as a fighter.

Posted February 22, 2013 10:04 pm 


Ned

Price should be fighting more often. He’s pushing 30 and could be over the hill within 3 years. Moreover, his management isn’t doing him any favors by putting him in against old timers. His next bout (within 12 weeks!) should be against a 30 or younger opponent: Helenius, Boystov, Dimetrenko, Charr, Jennings, or Mitchell. Lastly, he should fight outside of the UK in Germany, Canada, or the U.S. to gain international recognition. David can bang, and that’s what the fans want to see.

so when wlad fights him its ok but when price does he is washed up and shot

Anonymous: I’d glady pay a few hundred dollars to see you make a smart ass derogatory ginger comment to Price or Canelos face. Fully well knowing that I’d get to enjoy waching you get KTFO. Then I’d run up and stomp on your head a few times just for good measure. Some wannabe tough guys gotta learn the hard way.

Price would send a good message to all boxing fans, by starting fighting A-level fighters, insted of club fighters and old and shot A-level fighters.

fank

If thompson outta of shape like youall say and price does ko him fast price should not sit on this win but ge rigt back in the ring with another opponnet who is decent . thats how you get experience and a fan base outside of your own backyard if he serious about becoming the best fighter he can be

I’m not gonna even waste my time watching this crap.

if price wins good for him it a step up . hope for him he looks good doing it . even if price stops thompson quicker then klitchko that doesnt mean he a better fighter then klitchko . it will more likely mean that thompson has slipped plenty of late . If price w3ants to prove hes better then klitchko let him keep stepping up the competition and eventually beat klitchko and that will really mean some thing then

Price is a beast. Hope he destroys Thompson in style. The scouser is the best heavyweight contender out there by a mile.

Price must be extremely good if some posters are predicting Thompson is over matched.

Posted February 22, 2013 5:34 pm

Watch for Tony to take a dive. I knew he’s there only for the money, he didn’t even bother training.

Posted February 22, 2013 5:10 pm 


Neil(pomy)

Good match-up for Price. Dont think he’ll walk through him.

Posted February 22, 2013 5:07 pm

Well well well tony thompson is to heavy theres a shock. Price to win in three rounds

Posted February 22, 2013 4:17 pm

THOMPSON IS JUST HERE FOR THE MONEY, HE SEEMS AS FAT AS TONEY.

Posted February 22, 2013 3:00 pm

Should be an easy fight for Price. TT looks soft and simply not interested. He’s there for the paycheck. Price stops him within 6 rounds.

Posted February 22, 2013 2:08 pm

tony is out of shape

Price looks like a no nonsence fighter.He may be moved alittle slow,but he looks like hes in it for the long haul all the way.Never any fat on Price always in shape,thats good to see in the hvwt. div.

The x-tra weight could be he knows hes fighting a huge guy,and it could give him x-tra power,and better to take the big punches?Yes a win for Thompson would be big,and would give him lots of ink and set-up another big fight.So Im sure hes there to win,because this is his last big chance overall.

Posted February 22, 2013 1:12 pm 


KOrnerman

Maybe Thomson feels he carries more of a dig with the extra weight seen how he is fighting a massive guy, I don’t think he would turn up to lose, knowing Frank Malony the money wont be that great, a win for Thomson would propel him back into the limelight and he knows this.

This is all more worrying because Thompson always came in around the same weigt. 110-115kg. Never he has even been close to 120. For me it’s quite clear: he has not trained, he is there to pick up the money. This has changed from an interesting fight to a non event for me. Price will easily destroy him

Posted February 22, 2013 10:35 am 


rod

Tony is 120 kilos, Price 113kilos. Tony is too heavy.

Posted February 22, 2013 10:11 am 


rod

Not sure how many kilos or pounds 18.9 is but Toney looks heavy, he is 1 stone heavier than the noticeably taller Price. He will gets gassed and smashed.
