KL – yes, that’s for sure part of the explanationPosted October 17, 2012 4:04 am
Price resume in boxrec,,,,imperssive, NOT!
he would get destroyed by Klitschko’s
he’s just waiting for them to retire, just like all the other bums.Posted October 16, 2012 1:14 pm
svdc I have a funny feeling that once both K brothers leave the scene quite a lot of prospects will suddenly step………in other words the managers & promoters might be very confident that their guy is a world champion in waiting……….it’s just that if they can hold out a little longer then they may avoid the K brothers to get their Prize.
It’s probably true that boxers can last longer now, but even then… Even if Price would still be fit at 40+ (which he cannot know now), that does not explain why they are not trying to move him a bit faster now. It’s not as if the Harrisson fight asks for a long recoveryPosted October 16, 2012 10:07 am

Price has looked like a complete package in his last few fights. He moves well, good jab and massive right hand. Most impressive for me is the accuracy and economy with which he boxes. I hope he gets to fight a K Bros before they retire.
just another paycheck
audley who? price gang raped him just as bad as haye didPosted October 15, 2012 4:42 pm
KL…Yes..Im sorry it is W.K. hes fighting.Ive seen Wach fight and yes he hasnt got much in the skill dept.He has some power but thats about it and you can see it coming from a mile away.We are on the same page about Price he is a young 29.Price has been in no wars..havent been really out with injuries..surgery..ect.I dont see him getting old overnight because he does have low milage(hopefully no injuries in the near future)But lets see him fight Ademek..Pulev..Chambers…soon.Because these are fights IMO he can win.And you want him to go into a title fight with some good wins under his belt…unlike Wach.Posted October 15, 2012 2:56 pm
When does Price fight a guy with a pulse??Posted October 15, 2012 2:30 pm
DWC, Wach is fighting Wlad not Vitali….. I hadn’t seen any Wach fights until a few weeks ago……I decided to take a look at him…….I picked a fai recent fight of his…….and I watched it for about 3 minutes…….. that was all I needed to know……..he looks awful………. I’d be VERY surprised if he pose any problems for Wlad!Posted October 15, 2012 2:30 pm
Price would probably stop anyone he connects with. He has enough skill to avoid gettinf hit himself so is going to by a handfull for anyone not called Klitschko. Fury and Haye will never fight him so after Skelton he should start looking overseas for some top 20 opposition.Posted October 15, 2012 1:51 pm
DWC, I generally agree with you, the body does have it’s limits……..it’s just that those limits have been extended somewhat, and this may be again partly the mental attitude……..when fighters see Bernard Hopkins,Foreman,& Vitali Klitschko all doing suceeding well past their imaginary age number imposed sell by date……..it inspires others……….again going back to the olympics, there are far more over 30s competing now than say 10/20 years ago because more over 30s are giving it ago.
KL…I would like to add look at that guy Wach hes 32 never fought a guy in the top 10.He never really had a step-up fight and is now fighting V.K. for the title.Wach is lucky V.K. is not in his prime because he might of gotten very badly hurt.He still might get hurt bad this is not smart mangement by Wachs team.Fighters still have to be moved smart even if they are fighting at an older age.Posted October 15, 2012 1:36 pm
KL…Yes I do agree with you on those points.Im an older guy grew up watching 15rd. fights much more active fighters at a younger age.Fighters today arent in 15rd wars and are much fresher then fighters from the 50s-80s. also because they are less active when they are younger so ofcourse you last longer.But IMO V.K. is getting pretty old now and hasnt looked the same as he did a few years ago.I belive also hes pretty lucky theres no real big young lion waiting for him now hes able to push the age issue somewhat.Yes with high tech. training it adds something to athlets but boxing is not like baseball it combines speed..reflects..power..footwork..a good set of lungs…and punch resitance.Thats why I love boxing a good fighter has good all around skills and is in great shape 95% of the time.But the human body can start to break down from that high of a level as early as your mid-30s.Very few fighters look as good at age 38 as they did at 31.With all the high tech. training theres still no real fountain of youth(I wish there was)And when your 36 and you get torn-up or need surgery it takes longer to heal then a kid at 24.There are rare cases like Foreman and even V.K. but that also has to do with whos coming up…the hungry young lions and if there are any at the time.Like I said I like Price has good skills it seems..real power.But I would like to see him get the belt not to late in life and defend it for years thats why I also liked Larry Holmes so much.All Im really saying is dont waste to much time life can sometimes throw some real curve balls at you and then regrets follow.Posted October 15, 2012 1:21 pm
typo: I meant: General mental attitude (towards age)Posted October 15, 2012 12:27 pm
DCW, I think it’s mixture of both new training techniques and general mental towards age.
MIX…Tyson wasnt 29yrs.old when he was blowing away this level of fighters.But I like Price and I know its a different era…hvwts. are late bloomers now in this era.But Price does need a nice step-up now.And the bad thing about getting a title shot at 31 or 32 is that if you do win your time can be very limited theres a great chance you wont have a long rein.And great champs are measured alot of times by how long they defened their title…how long they were champs.I think Price can maybe do this but I would hate to see him get the belt at 32 or 33 and lose it at 35 when he could have had a longer rein.Posted October 15, 2012 11:59 am
Gray, I would rather see Price step up in class too but I guess Skelton was picked because Frank Maloney manages both Price and Skelton……..so it’s an easy match up to make and I bet Maloney dangled the bait of a big money fight against Price in front of him if Skelton performed well in his last few fights.
I suppose it’s ok to fight weak competetion in the beginning but then you should have about 10 fights/year. That’s what Wlad, Tyson, Lewis etc didPosted October 15, 2012 10:09 am
Price Vs skelton which is next is a step back to far – they need to put him in with an ex champ or fringe contender nowPosted October 15, 2012 9:59 am
Neil (Pomy)…………I guess one of the things that we Brits hold against Audley is that he mugged us BBC licence payers of £1 million, so in effect part of Audley’s comfortable retirement is funded by us Brits.
I can’t remember too many complaints when Mike Tyson & Nigel Benn were KOing patsies when they were on the way up.Posted October 15, 2012 7:46 am
This was a fine win for Price. Harrison, on paper, was a step up for him. Price-Fury is the obvious big fight for him, but it is not Price’s fault it has not happened. Questions about his chin, his stamina, etc, go un-answered, but that is not his fault. He is blowing opponents away, which is what top Heavyweight prospects do.Posted October 15, 2012 7:42 am

To all my fans out there that stick with me thru think and thin, this is a minor set back. Price got lucky as I was about to pounce on him. Just need some more sprarring and tune ups before I fight one of the Klit brothers. AForce cant be stopped. Its my destiny to be undisputed HW champ. Its been written.Posted October 15, 2012 7:25 am
I start to like Price, both in and out of the ring, but he urgently needs to step it up. 14 fights and 29yrs old already…???? how did that happen? Wlad had already 40 fights when he was 29, even Haye had twice as many. He is wasting valuable time herePosted October 15, 2012 6:57 am
2Slick: As I’ve said Fury needs to bring more to the table then a !BIG MOUTH”! His management should be pressing the EBU for a crack at the European title, thus lining up a classic British, European & Commonwealth title contest with Pricey. The Skelton fight has been signed & if nothing else will provide DP with another valuable notch on the Lonsdale belt. Malloney’s gotta get him out of the UK once in a while though!Posted October 15, 2012 6:57 am

How about Malick Scott as next opponent for David Price? Scott will never achive anything and Price still needs some more expearence in the ring so take him out on the road would be good.Posted October 15, 2012 6:16 am
There was little point in this before the bell rang and beating a frightened corpse version of Audley Harrison, who was timid and chinny even in his ‘prime’ still feels pretty hollow. Still Prices’ power is impressive. Shame Price has come around 5 years too late as he will likely be matched to avoid an ageing Wlad – but with his size and power he definitely ‘could’ have asked some questions. Would like to see him in with Fury soon, just to derail the hype train around that lanky powderpuff.Posted October 15, 2012 6:11 am
Price needs to fight abroad if he really wants to make an impact. If he blows Skelton away in less then 5 rounds I’d like to see him back in action by the begining of Febuary, hopefully on main land Europe or the USA. Richard Towers fights Lucas Brown on December 11TH in Hong Kong in a final eliminator for Price’s Commonwealth title, so he should honour that fight by April. I don’t want to see him fight for the World title until he’s had at least 25-30 fights, “It only takes one hard accurate punch to ruin a career”!Posted October 15, 2012 5:48 am

KL.. I actually agree with almost all of that. Like I said, I do like Price and I hope he goes on to do great things. As for Pulev, I like him too and whilst I don’t think he possesses the devastating offensive capabilities of Price, he definitely has the size, skills, and chin to cause Price big problems, as Price does for him too. They actually sparred together a while back and Price said Pulev is the only person who’s hurt him since he turned pro.Posted October 14, 2012 11:37 pm
I’m not sure Pulev is the right fight just now.. Price needs rounds.. I would make Arreola a massive offer that would be hard to turn down. He has to lure a well known young guy who can be easily outboxed, but can go a lot of rounds… Pulev would be okay in 2 or 3 fights but that’s a big jump up in class.Posted October 14, 2012 11:01 pm
Interesting to see others bring up Pulev v Price. KL & I went a few cordial rounds on that potential match up.
Certainly Price might be able to beat Pulev. OTOH, whatever you want to say about Dimitrenko & Ustinov, they are both well above AH at this stage. Audley isn’t really top 100 anymore, but Pulev’s recent opponents are lock top 50 and you can make an argument for top 25 for at least one of them.
I want to see Price tested… and he shoud skip Skelton. Find another way to get MS some money. Price s/be fighting, at minimum, top 50 HWs.Posted October 14, 2012 10:40 pm
Harrison was bragging that he was taking the heavy shots by Wilder in training.So I guess getting caught means he was caught..smashed..and buried.I wonder how he rates Prices power to Wilders now???Posted October 14, 2012 8:39 pm

KL yeah i agree with that too, it all works out well for price as he can keep the belt tooPosted October 14, 2012 4:54 pm
I reckon Tyson Fury’s got a screw loose! & is a 100% retard. Chip on his shoulder? More like a bag of oven McCain’s, with an identity crisis to boot. He was twice English champion before becoming British & Commonwealth champ. However instead of defending against the BBBofC #1 contender David Price, he chose to beat up an over the hill taxi driver for the lowly Irish title. Price vs Fury should happen with a 60/40% split in favour of the champion. Unless of course Fury could bring the EBU title to the table!
@KL…agree with all, well said.Posted October 14, 2012 4:46 pm
Knowall, I suspect the fact that Maloney manages both Price and Skelton has a lot to do with why Skelton is Price’s next opponent!Posted October 14, 2012 4:42 pm
Pride……I totally agree about Pulev……to me he hasn’t really earnt the high pedestal that some here have placed him on. Sure his last 2 opponents were half decent……..but it was easy to see why Eddie Chambers was able to outbox Dimentenko………he seems to have trouble with faster guys like Chambers and now Pulev……and Dimentreko rarely landed anything of much menace against Pulev……..Pulev is tough and does seem to evade punches pretty well.
like the comment below, i cant see fury and price getting it on anytime soon. I think the reason he has skelton next is so he can keep the lonsdale belt outright, which is a big deal to british fightersPosted October 14, 2012 4:40 pm
Tyson Fury, as fun as he is clobbering bums, would get hurt by Price and that’s why that fight won’t happen until Fury gets busted up by someone else first or (unlikely) they both have world titles and see huge money in a unification in the UK.Posted October 14, 2012 4:25 pm
Giant missing link Usitnov, who makes Valuev look like a Klitschko.
Travis Walker, who anyone worth a S*** can KO, goes the distance and even wins a few rounds again Pulev.
Dominic Guinn, American hypejob who will most likely lose to mediocre Frank Lawerence later this month.
Derric Rossy, best known for getting KTFO by Fat Eddie Chambers, though admittedly that fight was fun to watch.
SO, who did Pulev beat that makes him so great? OLD ASS MICHAEL SPROTT? A guy Tye Fields can beat? A guy the even if Price has to waste his time fighting him next, bet on Sprott being out of their in three or less rather than taking nine rounds to retire on his stool with Pulev.Posted October 14, 2012 4:14 pm
Fury, lol its personalPosted October 14, 2012 4:12 pm
Gonzo, there are things that impress me about about Price, not withstanding his power…….just look at the size of the guy and the way his body has filled out!
Gonzo the Dragonborn
Because I saw him get bounced off the canvas in the amateurs 3 times by an Indian heavyweight in the Commonwealth games, stopped by Cammeralle, although to be fair to Price Cammeralle is a known banger, and stopped by that Haitian/Canadian due Stiverne too. Like I said, he seems to have bulked up in the right areas and he might will be able to hold a better shot now. However, I’m afraid I’m going to remain sceptical until I see him take some sold whacks of a noted puncher in the pro ranks.Posted October 14, 2012 3:33 pm
Gonzo the Dragonborn
Price stopped the fearsome Russian Islam Timursiev in the amateurs, Timursiev was the number 1 ranked Superheavy in world at the time and was heavily favoured to win the Olympic gold. If Price could drop him hard with those big gloves on, he could do the same to almost anybody. His power is very real.Posted October 14, 2012 3:27 pm
Why does everyone mention Price and his chin?
Do we still bark on about Klitschko’s chin, or Lewis’s chin?
You get pinged flush on the button at these weights, unless your the Atomic Bull, you’re going taste the canvas.
Few more fights, Fury in there and beaten with ease and this kid will be ready for a big big fight.Posted October 14, 2012 3:25 pm
Gonzo the Dragonborn
I like both Fury and Price. Fury is a funny f@cker, and Price just seems like a thoroughly decent chap. I wasn’t too high on Price to begin with as I had, and still have, serious reservations about the strength of his chin. However, offensively, he’s definitely impressed me a lot and I think he has the right combination of size, speed and power to cause anyone major problems. H seems to have bulked up quite a lot since he turned pro, especially round the back and neck areas, so perhaps he might be able to hold a shot a little better than he did in the amateurs. It seems that Fury has finally realized that he has to get himself into top shape if he’s ever going to reach his full potential too, and make no mistake he does have a lot of natural talent, and whilst I don’t think he’ll ever be a Wlad or a Vitali, I think he could definitely become a serious player in the division and pick up a strap and make a lot of money for himself what with his gift of the gab and all. I think Price would probably catch him with that big right hand knock him out if they fought now though to be honest.Posted October 14, 2012 3:22 pm
Hitmachine, I think the decision to fight Skelton is purely the fact that Maloney manages Skelton, and probably wants to “help” Skelton with a nice pay check more than anything else, and most probably Maloney promised Skelton the prize of a fight with Price if he did well in his last few fights…….Skelton has obliged and now Maloney is honouring his prior promise to Skelton.Posted October 14, 2012 3:17 pm
YES KL, I realize it very well. Price is really talented boxer with extra skills (especially punching power), but the opponents he had met or he will are really garbage. There have been dozens of boxers who looked really impressive against bums but who have never won anything big. That is why it is impossible to say if Price is bird or fish. There must be something wrong with him (perhaps self-confidence or chin) because he has to take Skelton level opponents after four year professional carrier.Posted October 14, 2012 2:58 pm
KL…Yeah I saw that,Fury looked bewildered,like to see them get it on….Posted October 14, 2012 2:50 pm

Putting Chisora with Price would be just as embarrassing as the Harrison fight.Del has lost 4 of his last 5 fights and the one he won had lost 43 times…As far as I’m concerned Del Boy has only got by on being controversial….Price has got no credibility as yet ,except he can punch and he was the main sparring partner for Haye.His resume is lightweight and we don’t have a clue if he can take a punch..He has had 14 fights and gone 37 rounds,thats approx 2 1/2 rounds per fight…No more easy fights, put him in with Furry,we will see how they both hold up…Posted October 14, 2012 2:20 pm
Me thinks the big man has dodgy whiskers-looks a bit fragile like a giraffe. Will continue to get matched against has beens till the coast is clear for a soft crack at a title. Price seems to lack confidence too and souls be out psyched by head games of the more brash pugilists.Posted October 14, 2012 2:03 pm
Hitmachine you DO realise that Price is STILL a 14 fight novice don’t you?
WOW!! Now when Price has beaten Olympic gold medalist Harrison and will next take awesome young Skelton he will probably destroy world beater Danny Williams and after that only heaven is limit for him…Posted October 14, 2012 1:28 pm

We are looking at Klitschko’s successor here and the first undisputed ( w/ respect to nationality credentials) Brit heavyweight champ since Bob Fitzsimmons. I also think he could competitively challenge a Klit after about 3-5 fights. I would love to see him andFury go at it.Posted October 14, 2012 12:30 pm

Don’t blame Price for the Skelton fight. Maloney just wants to have an in house fight to make more money. Price vs. Chisora would be better but all of those fights will come next year and it isn’t Price’s fault they haven’t already because other people have wanted to stay away from him until he makes his name because the risk/reward isn’t worth it with Price yet.Posted October 14, 2012 10:06 am
I’ve not been at the front of the price bandwagon and yes Harrison is limited but let’s be honest, Price smashed him easy, and smashes everyone easy at this level and he’s fighting tougher guys than seth mitchell and wilder are, who are also very good fighters.Posted October 14, 2012 10:03 am

The question isn’t what Price does next; only a fringe player at best, he’s largely irrelevant to the future boxing scene. The answer we need is where does Audley go from here? Age and time may be against him now, but he was on top in that fight until Price sneaked in with that lucky shot. Surely it’s worth another tilt at a world title somewhere down the line?Posted October 14, 2012 8:25 am

Wow, Price is dangerous, very very dangerous. Harrison did not actually do anything wrong. He tryed to tap off prices jab and counter. He got tagged once and survived only to get tagged again and got get smashed. Price is simply too good. The K Bros and Pulev are the only guys who can stand up to him right now. From what I hear from prices sparring seasions with Pulev are very competative. I think Price would take the great Vitali right now, Vitali is no longer the prime machine he was 8 years ago. Price is ready for one of the K Bros, I doubt Vitali Fury on any top level boxer will get in the ring with him.Posted October 14, 2012 8:12 am
Who next for the behemoth Price? Will it be Danny Williams, Julius Francis or Matt Skelton? We know he can punch out old has beens and slow fat boys, but what happens when someone punches back? He is still young and no need to rush, but he has been a pro for 4 years now.Posted October 14, 2012 8:08 am
I thought that picture was of Wlad. I kept thinking, “When the hell did Audley fight Wlad?” As for competition, I don’t anything about Price, but the guy has only had 14 pro fights, they have to pace him. Putting him in with a past it contender isn’t such a bad idea at this point in his career. Now, if he’s 25-0 and still fighting guys like this, the people will have a reason to complain.Posted October 14, 2012 8:04 am

As Steward said, “he looks like you Ladimire”…Hm, Price appeared to be a future champ in this fight…this great combination of skills and size and athleticism…but goddamn! That oddly Harrison dude is not a measuring stick for a up and comer like Price! A fight between Davey Ga y and David Price would be a great test for both and a great fight for US.

With just 14 fights & 5’ish rounds in a year Price still has a lot to learn. So then 45 year old Matt Skelton up next in December, well that’s okay a bit more target practice & another notch on the Lonsdale belt won’t do any halm, however Frank Maloney’s really gotta get DP on some undercards in the USA & mainland Europe if he’s to gain more experiance & exposure. He should be fighting at least every 2 months at this rate, remember he’s 29 years of age. Apparentlly FM offered Tyson Fury £500K which would be nice to see next Summer & sort out who really is #2 in the UK after David Haye. TF really needs to bring something to the table apart from a big mouth though & I suggest he gets a European title fight arranged quick smart.

Swedish Boxing Fan
Well David Price did his job allright. He knocked out Audley Harrison in 1st round and that was good :-). Now Audley “Fraudley” Harrison can leave boxing and not coming back.Posted October 14, 2012 5:14 am
Lewis v Grant, Grant was massively hyped, he will beat Lewis, got weaved,we don’t like Lewis even though he knocks everyone out, he is not American, but we like the Klitschskos now,jump on that bandwagon,that’s boxing for you.Posted October 14, 2012 5:04 am
it will be Rahman or some fight like that,and it will be a war,Wilder v Rahman trilogy.Posted October 14, 2012 4:53 am
Wilder,who is he fighting next,anyone we have heard of.Posted October 14, 2012 4:51 am
If Audley keeps getting gigs because he looks like he might throw a punch then why not just give Shaquille O’Neil a try or why not Randy Couture, atleat Randy might actually try to fight…Posted October 14, 2012 4:48 am
Deontay Wilder v Audley Harrison,it would probably go to a split decision,in a boring fight,then they would have to fight again,in a war over 12 rounds,then a third fight,the Wilder v Harrison trilogy.Posted October 14, 2012 4:43 am
So obviously Price is the next british hype that will destroy a Klitschko soon, because he beat up the bum of the decade Fraudley….hilarious.Posted October 14, 2012 4:36 am
Povetkin is not worth mentioning,that would be fodder for Price,easy work.Posted October 14, 2012 4:17 am
Price has only had 14 fights,they know what they are doing,they will not rush it.Posted October 14, 2012 4:16 am
First Haye, then Povetkin, then a Klitschko. That’s the way he should do it. But Skelton? REALLY?!Posted October 14, 2012 4:13 am
Haye can move about quicker,Klitschkos will get done about 4 rounds, they can’t avoid Price,once he lands against any Boxer,it’s lights outPosted October 14, 2012 4:12 am
Price to KO the Klitschkos soon,more likely and quicker.Posted October 14, 2012 4:09 am
Price to KO haye v@gina soonPosted October 14, 2012 4:07 am
Price to KO haye vagina soonPosted October 14, 2012 4:06 am
Price would beat Vladimir Klitchsko now,Klitschko would not be able to grab like he is used to now, that’s his game,he could not do it against a fast very tall concussive puncher Price.Posted October 14, 2012 4:05 am
Tark – Audley does actually already have a degree, but as I understand it it is in Sports Science, which basically makes people overqualified P.E teachers or personal trainers.Posted October 14, 2012 4:03 am
Price is dangerous,forget if he can take a punch,can the opposition last 1 round,they will not get near him before he lands,he will tap you and knock you out.Posted October 14, 2012 3:54 am
What a joke. Price should be fighting guys like Povetin, Pulev and Haye. Hope no one tunes in to see him versus Skelton. Is Price’s chin really that laughably poor? Price and Wilder are an embarrassment to boxing. He seems like a nice guy but what is the point of fighing such over-matched opposition?Posted October 14, 2012 3:50 am
though i admit it could be fun to see england dominate the heavies in the next 10 years after so dismal a showing in the last century. the only problem so far, from haye to price to fury, is to convince them to take on live fighters. haye fought 2 ranked fighters in 4 years as a heavy. and was 1-1. the rest, were heavybags with trunks on, including chisora, who i dont see as having a future. but the others, lots of talent, lots of fun on the horizon, i am already contemplating a ticket to england for a heavy bout…soon as they fight a ranked fighter…(and yes there is a top 10, even a top 20 for price to draw from, so far he stayed in the 40-50s worldwide….thats way too weak an opposition..)Posted October 14, 2012 3:48 am
WE WANT HAYE! WE WANT HAYE! WE WANT HAYE! Make it happen, let’s test Price.Posted October 14, 2012 3:34 am
Lewis Hamilton and Shumacher were probably really good at scalextric when they were younger,stop the cars going of the track.Posted October 14, 2012 3:23 am
Do you ESB old timers still remember KAREN? I wonder what she’s doing now. She used to post totally insane articles about Audley being the best in the division. Man, I miss the s*it she spewed.Posted October 14, 2012 3:20 am
Lewis Hamilton well done, you won,and the others,that is rubbish,who watches it.Posted October 14, 2012 3:17 am
Right now Haye would beat Price. So would would Wlad and Vitali. David needs a fight where he gets banged up a little. Trouble is there ain’t many decent heavyweights around.Posted October 14, 2012 2:47 am
Fury is an idiot,he will not fight Price,he will lose and he knows it,he just wants to keep fighting no marks on channel 5 for a while and get paid for it well.Posted October 14, 2012 1:59 am
…..”Wilder’s worse competition would have, at least, given it a go.” …. Wilder’s worst competition would be spanked by Ali Adams—who Harrison took to the cleaners in his last fight.. Price is just good.. I believe now they’ll look for durable guys like Arreola.. Price has to get some rounds.Posted October 14, 2012 1:57 am
Oh, that was bad. Ego flushed down the toilet. Wilder’s worse competition would have, at least, given it a go. There needs to a law against something like that. You can’t even call that throwing a fight.Posted October 14, 2012 1:49 am
Price vs. Haye is the fight I’d like to see most, followed by Price vs. Fury.Posted October 14, 2012 1:44 am
Harrison should have called it a day after his last win. Even Wilder’s piss butt poor competition try to give it a go. That was bad. Audley needs to find a new country.Posted October 14, 2012 1:31 am
Wow, Harrison should have hung it after his last win and call it a day. Even Wilder’s piss butt poor competition try to give it a go in the ring. That was bad. Audley needs to find a new country.Posted October 14, 2012 1:28 am
I don’t think Harrison has to mop floors or worry about government benefits for poor people.. He has enough money to live comfortably for the rest of his life, but he’ll probably get a white collar job of some kind if he doesn’t want to retire and live off his fame.. I don’t know if he has a degree in anything but he has enough money to go to college if he hasn’t been there.. This fight was even a poorer effort than Rahman’s vs Povetkin … After a fight like this you know it’s not the beginning of the end—it’s the end of the end.Posted October 14, 2012 1:27 am
He should offer a fight to wilder, two tall promising haveys fighting eachother ,what better can we ask ? and they will shot critics mouths who say they are avoiding tough competition, simy we will find out who is a real deal…Posted October 14, 2012 12:24 am
Cycling tour de france,top athletes,didnt think they were taking them,now that are confirmed taking PEDS,it will be the same with Boxing and other Sports,it’s probably a usa thing though.Posted October 13, 2012 11:27 pm
I`d target Adamek, Fury and Arreola – as guys who are over-rated on the world stage.
Pulev is a good solid fighter and honestly I`d let Klitschko deal with him first while making a name off of those other three first.Posted October 13, 2012 10:51 pm
Apparently Maloney has already confirmed Skelton is Price’s next opponent, an easy match up to make because Maloney also manages Skelton.
I wonder if Harrison still thinks Wilder is the hardest puncher out there…lol.But Price needs a nice step-up now. I would like to see Price fight Adamek..Chambers..Pulev..all guys he could beat I feel.But these are the kinds of fights Price needs and he would then get all the respect he needs and would pave for him a road to bigger paydays and in the near future a title shot.Plus these type of fights should give him decent amount of rounds and prepare him for the title in due time.Posted October 13, 2012 10:40 pm
Price is good fighter, he probably doesn’t have to take heavy return fire,because he avoids it,then knocks you out.Posted October 13, 2012 10:33 pm
Hagler v Hearns, thats the fight.Posted October 13, 2012 10:12 pm
Mike Tyson v “Little cousin scampi” on youtube
Mike Tyson would be out matched.Posted October 13, 2012 10:01 pm
Audley should fight Klitchko next for 10M dollars !!!Posted October 13, 2012 9:55 pm
Audley Harrison,he tried for about 45 seconds,like your Grand Dad would of, there was nothing there,Audley Harrison is finished, he is not a gatekeeper for fighters.Posted October 13, 2012 9:21 pm
Price has impressive power, but some people like Pokins are getting a little carried away here. When the big man gets in there with someone who has the whiskers and can bang back, then we’ll know if he’s for real. The last big man who could bang left Price in a heap, we may have another another Mark Breland, here.Posted October 13, 2012 9:12 pm
Harrison should have retired years ago. Harrison should get a part time job mopping floors and a part time job as a sparring partner, that should keep him off government support.Posted October 13, 2012 9:07 pm
Harrison is becoming a laughingstock / sorry mutha’…… Geezus……. Give-it-up, man….Posted October 13, 2012 8:56 pm
Just a pay check
…Posted October 13, 2012 8:55 pm
KL, touche. Both are good match ups, as is Price-Nordic Nightmare.Posted October 13, 2012 8:46 pm
Decker, the problem I see for Pulev is that being the more wearing down type fighter that he is, he would have to eat a lot of heavy shots from Price and Haye, and I certainly think both Price and Haye are better punchers than Dimentrenko or Ustinov.
@KL – good points re Pulev, he doesn’t seem to have early explosive power. He certainly seems able to wear down big men.
You might say Dimitrenko lacks the stuff of a top HW and that Ustinov is a 300lb punching bag. However both recent Pulev victims/opponents are above AH, maybe well above.
Don’t be too sure that Pulev can’t beat Price or Haye late, more so the latter !Posted October 13, 2012 8:20 pm
Mat Price would beat Fury & Chisora on the same night in my view…….. I just don’t see Chisora “testing” Price at all.
Mark ironically such a quick KO loss may actually convince Fraudley to carry on boxing for a while……..because he would hate to leave boxing having been Koed in 90 seconds……..damn you Price you might have made Fraudley stick around…..until he “redeems himself”………because Fraudlle wants Matt Skelton next!Posted October 13, 2012 8:14 pm
But Fury has clearly a dodgy defence, and has been knocked down by (no respect intended) European level fighters at best.
I think Price could destoy him with his jab and straight right alone, Fury’s defence (and chin )is that dodgy.
Chisora wouldn’t beat Price that for sure, but definately give him a severe test.
(If he comes in fit and hungry)Posted October 13, 2012 8:12 pm
Mat, I don’t think body shots will hurt Price……..and therefore Chisora might actually be a quick nights work for Price as Price doesn’t need to go looking for him.
They seek him there,they seek him here, “little cousin scampi” on youtube.Posted October 13, 2012 8:09 pm
Yes, i do agree with you in the fact that two unbeaten domestic fighters in Price v Fury would definately generate massive interest in the UK.Posted October 13, 2012 8:06 pm
I meant no needle between Price/Chisora.Posted October 13, 2012 8:03 pm
A fight domestically require some needle and there’s no needle between Price/Fury.
But we have in Fury a Price where there’s more at stake.
Fury and Price sells, they’re both unbeaten domestic prospects.
I am sick of seeing and hearing Fury/Hennessy talkin crap and robbin the public.
Either put up or shut up!
Chisora’s got nothing to offer anyone where as Fury/Price works!Posted October 13, 2012 8:01 pm
I think Chisora could put the pressure on by being constantly in Price’s face, under his guard laying in with those body shots.
Like I say, I think Price would definately defeat Chisora, but I think it would be a far harder fight than Fury.
Fury is just asking to be tagged, and with a guy the size, power and range of Price.. goodnight Fury.Posted October 13, 2012 7:51 pm
Price is a beast. Best heavyweight prospect i’ve seen in 10 years or so. He’d destroy Mitchell and Povetkin, and could cause Vitali serious problems at this stage of his career.Posted October 13, 2012 7:45 pm
Mat, I’m not too sure Chisora would ask too many questions…….. he’s not punch accurate enough for my liking.Posted October 13, 2012 7:44 pm
Tark…….you know what Wilder’s camp will say?
I don’t doubt for a second that Price would defeat Chisora, but I think Chisora would definately ask more questions and make Price work a helluva lot harder than Fury every could.Posted October 13, 2012 7:41 pm
Holyfield v Bowe 3.that was a good fight from way back,when you look back,and not seen it for a while,it was a good fight,it’s like watching from Holyfield v Bowe back to Ali v Frazier.Posted October 13, 2012 7:40 pm
HH London…”Haye finished Chisora”
You don’t think that Haye would finish Tyson Fury ? I personally think Haye would destory Fury within 3 rounds.
Chisora still is a big name in these shores whatever the reason and a far bigger test than Fury ever would be.Posted October 13, 2012 7:38 pm
Matt, I wouldn’t want to see Chisora fight Price.
No one wants to see Price/Chisora!
Haye finished Chisora!
The fight we all want to see is Price/Fury!Posted October 13, 2012 7:33 pm
A fit and hungry Chisora is by far a more dangerous match up than Tyson Fury.
Price would demolish Fury in 3, Chisora (fit and hungry) is by far a harder test.Posted October 13, 2012 7:30 pm
Decker, Pulev probably has got a stronger chin than Haye or Price, but by the same token, Pulev has the least immeadiate early explosive power of the 3 boxers……..and If Pulev were to beat Price or Haye I’d think he’d have to take out both guys early…….something I’m not sure Pulev can do.Posted October 13, 2012 7:29 pm
@The Bible of Boxing, styles do make fights, one only has to look at how Ali handled Foreman to demonstrate this.
They just offered Fury half a million pounds, so where does Chisora come into this?
Haye just smashed him to bits and the only fight left domestically for Price is Fury.
Fury got called out and responded he’d take the fight.
Let’s see Mick and Tyson put their balls on the table!Posted October 13, 2012 7:24 pm
The fact man,
You got the facts!
I hope Price defends that once more so he can hang it on his wall for good!
The Lonsdale Belt is something most over-promoted nobodies avoid because it means three tough fights.
But those that own a Lonsdale Belt outright are in good company and I wish Price the best in making that happen!Posted October 13, 2012 7:23 pm
only way forward now is Price v Chisora
this is the only match up that makes sensePosted October 13, 2012 7:22 pm
Maloney has Fury and Hennessy’s bollocks in a jar on his desk tonight!
Half a million, lace ’em up or shut up Tyson!
Price will smash the granny out of Fury inside three rounds!Posted October 13, 2012 7:20 pm
the fact man
Price wants to win the Lonsdale belt out right. It means something in our country. Especially in our city of Liverpool. Loads of British Champs here now!!Posted October 13, 2012 7:17 pm
I think the odds Price beats Haye are greater than Price beating Pulev.
The Bulgar seems to have a chin that Haye (or maybe Price) doesn’t have.Posted October 13, 2012 7:13 pm
Fury is a pikey Boxer,fight Price,you didn’t,go away.Posted October 13, 2012 7:12 pm
The Bible of Boxing
@ Reality you may be right but e.g. Tyson failed to make the US Olympic team but later as a pro he ko-ed the guys that made it above him.
Go Price!Posted October 13, 2012 7:09 pm
Reality, Price has sparred with Pulev, and Price rates Pulev higher than I do.
KL – no offense but he got stopped wearing a headguard!!! Also, he was rocked pretty badly
The point that seems lost by some here is that Price has successfully stopped common opponents much faster than his rated contemporaries, Fury, Chisora & Haye.
The author of this article is clearly a relative of tyson furry plums, Audley Harrison is far more than domestic level it’s just Price is way above him so give him some credit you bum.Posted October 13, 2012 6:39 pm
Decker, point taken, after all Fraudley was Euro champ and he only had to beat Sprott to get that cardboard title!
Decker has a good point. America is the new Europe when it comes to boxing and the Eurohonkies are the new Larry Holmes, Kenny Nortons, Joe Fraziers and George Foreman’s. Not to mention with the current administration America is starting to look a lot like an infamous Teutonic country circa 1933–with a blend of French pink!Posted October 13, 2012 6:30 pm
Remember when European level meant not much more than domestic level (for non US).
Now it’s about like saying world level !Posted October 13, 2012 6:26 pm
I somehow doubt that team Price will pick Skelton as their next opponent……….they know too many fans won’t like it………..they also know that Price is way above domestic level and they know they need to fight at European level next and not regress back to domestic level which Skelton represents.Posted October 13, 2012 6:20 pm
How about Price and Seth MitchellPosted October 13, 2012 6:17 pm
@Reality, yes Price got badly beat up by Cammarelle four years ago, but that doesn’t mean Price hasn’t learnt from that defeat.
If Price lasted 3 rds with Wlad I be impressedPosted October 13, 2012 6:13 pm
boxsmart said skelton is next. I hope not. Price should go to the us next make a name for himselfPosted October 13, 2012 6:12 pm
Why does this author always diss, Price and Fury opponents, yet he has all positive things to say about Wildier, is it a color thing.Posted October 13, 2012 6:08 pm
and fury is the biggest twat in boxing. stick his god up his arse, stupid preaching cnut.Posted October 13, 2012 6:01 pm
haye vs price would be a great fight. i’ve always felt haye is the most talented british fighter i’ve ever seen bar hamed, he still has the time to prove it.cPosted October 13, 2012 5:59 pm
David, to be fair to Price, Harrison has only been stopped twice before, so it’s quite an achievement for a 13 fight novice to KO Audley in just 90 seconds without even getting hit with a single punch himself.
Tyson Fury has just kicked off on live TV about Price. I think that fight could happen pretty soonPosted October 13, 2012 5:52 pm
Thought AH would’ve lasted longer but not surprised w/the result.
Agree Price should fight Haye (will he accept) or Pulev.
The Wlad dissing is funny. Wlad is not china chinned – he has gotten up from the canvas after getting hit flush from the likes of C Sanders. There are chin levels between china and iron.
For some keyboard “warrior” to say that Wlad, who has been in 50+ pro bouts, fights scared is kinda sad and funny.Posted October 13, 2012 5:51 pm
LOL. He’s beaten Harrison, so you think he can defeat the younger Klitschko? You guys are hilarious! :-DPosted October 13, 2012 5:50 pm
Nobody should be pumping up Price after KO’ing this has been. Clearly there’s a few excitable comments posted here from the usual man crush guys I think. Price needs to successfully step up many levels before he deserves the type of credit that’s being bandied about here.Posted October 13, 2012 5:45 pm
Arricle is a bit harsh on Price and Maloney
but it is fair to say that Audley is useless… cant believe I allowed myself to watch another one of his fights
Think Price looks very solid and powerful and is worth a shot at a title.Posted October 13, 2012 5:44 pm
Price is too big for haye, even though Haye is more talented and has more power pound for pound.Posted October 13, 2012 5:39 pm
The Bible of Boxing- one name that beats your theory…Roberto Cammarelle (the guy that battered Price sensless two Olympics ago, with headgear on).
The Bible of Boxing
Price will ko Wlad. First, remember Wlad has no chin and second, he uses his long left to paw and keep boxers awaay from him. Price is just as tall and has a decent jab.
The boxing world deserves to see the UK Superfight; Haye vs Price. I think it would be a great match with lots of fireworks and give clarity to who should be the “Heavyweight king of the UK”. Haye is very talented and I think with power and speed he would match up well for just about anyone but Price’s power looks absolutely devastating!Posted October 13, 2012 5:24 pm
Yes, Price beating Audley Harrison proves nothing but at least Harrison is a recognizable name unlike the one’s that are all over Deontay Wilder’s resume.Posted October 13, 2012 5:21 pm
Another 8000 punters conned by this disgrace to the sport and he should never be allowed in a ring again.Posted October 13, 2012 5:13 pm
I mean Chisara …Posted October 13, 2012 5:12 pm
what about Derick Cheesecakes …..?Posted October 13, 2012 5:11 pm
Get David Haye in there with him.Posted October 13, 2012 5:08 pm
According to Audley, Price is much much inferior to Wilder.Posted October 13, 2012 5:07 pm
Super!Posted October 13, 2012 5:04 pm
right hook to the body
fight is a joke audley aready washed longtime ago
where does it say I think that? Wlad has a china chin, this guy has awesome power – do the mathPosted October 13, 2012 5:03 pm
Harrison appeared unsteady before he was hit.Posted October 13, 2012 5:03 pm
Price has SERIOUS power. He’s still green in terms of pro experience but his power seems amazing collectively speaking of this and other fights. Unless something sidetracks him I foresee Price being the heavyweight king in the not too distant future.Posted October 13, 2012 5:02 pm
Audley Harrison is a TOY….Shame unto you Audley!Posted October 13, 2012 5:00 pm
Terrible, should have his purse withheldPosted October 13, 2012 4:59 pm
Price should skip a euro title and seek out a world already, even povetkin’s joke strap.Posted October 13, 2012 4:58 pm
that’s how its done man,explosive power looks promising.Posted October 13, 2012 4:58 pm
@meh: No, he isn’t. If you think that Harrison is remotely in a league with Vlad, than you also think that the current Roy Jones Jr. is in a league with Andre Ward. The fight vs. Harrison was useless. Price needs to pick harder opponents from now on to get ready for the big guy from the Ukraine.Posted October 13, 2012 4:57 pm

Great win for Kevin Satchell. I’d like to see him take some low key learning fights in SE Asia before defending the titles.Posted October 13, 2012 4:34 pm
I’d like to see Price vs. Haye next.. By then, both will have faced dangerous Audley, so it’s time to find out who’s the better David in the UK. ;-)Posted October 13, 2012 4:12 pm
Next opponent for Price surely? Assuming he gets past Audley…Posted October 13, 2012 4:01 pm
