Not sure what Orice gets from taking this fight with chisora. Even if he wins I don't see how it takes him to the next level.

If he loses he is done.

I can see why he was picked. Eddie Hearn likes him. Always comes in on short notice and fills a card.

Parker out, no title and neither anywhere near to one any time soon.

In terms of rankings they are actually pretty even (Price 8th in WBA and Chisora 9th in WBC)

Just dont want to see him getting sparked out cold again.

Chisora can probably take Price's best shots to be honest. His recent brutal KO of that Polish lad shows he still has power of his own. Price's best chance is if Bellend Boy has one of his 'can't be arsed' nights.

I see Price taking the sensible fights for his career rather than jumping into big fights for the most amount of money lasted long. Can’t say I blame him mind this will be his career payday. Just hope it doesn’t end badly.

Chisora if he "survives" the first round wins this pretty easily. Price has been done semi competitively for the last 4 years or so never mind trying to get near the top.

Is he Wolverine or something? Wow  :o I hope that is true; and I hope the lad wears his seatbelt from now on!

By the way, Usyk makes his heavyweight debut this weekend against Chazz Witherspoon. Witherspoon stepped in on Tuesday because Usyk's original opponent tested positive for drugs  ::) Anyway, should be a nice, soft introduction for him and I would expect a big step up in class in 2020.

Big chance that he goes straight after the winner of AJ v Ruiz, especially if it's Ruiz.

Wilder and Fury is going to get knocked back for a bit what with the cut and Fury farting about in WWE.

Seen the video of his crash on Youtube from a security camera from about 3-4 angles.

What a lucky lucky man to survive that.

You could say his conditioning and physique saved his life.

Dunno about that. No amount of conditioning is saving you if you smash your head on concrete at 90mph. He just got very, very lucky, and probably got dumped out on the grass as soon as the car tipped.

Fury "fighting" on WWE in Saudi Arabia.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/50022470

Former unified world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will compete against Braun Strowman at a WWE event in Saudi Arabia on 31 October.

Fury, 31, has appeared twice on WWE in recent weeks and has already started a feud with Strowman.


Speaking at the announcement of their bout, Fury said: "I fear no man. I am going to knock Strowman out."

Strowman, whose real name is Adam Scherr, said: "Tyson heed my warning. In the WWE, we don't wear gloves."

He added: "You are climbing into my world. You are a household name and when these hands put you down for good, the whole world will remember who the monster among men Braun Strowman is."

That used to be the argument in motorsports:  That you were better off being flung out of the vehicle.  These days road-going race cars manage to protect the driver even as the car collapses.  Why would you not wear a seatbelt in a 200 mph car, ffs?

It was Wilder who got lucky in that fight.

Usyk will cause some problems for the big guys with his speed and movement, all depends what happens if one of them can get near enough to land

I know it's not the same, but Usyk has taken some big shots from the likes of Breidis and Gassiev, they are HW tier punchers.  Wilder and AJ are another thing entirely, but I think Usyk's chin has been tested.

Watched a documentary called Facing Ali last night with the likes of Foreman, Frazier, Norton etc talking about their fights with The Greatest. I don't think any one of them was over 16st at their peaks and yet they'd all wipe the floor with the current crop of heavyweights. I think you're right about Usyk and I expect him to have a title belt or 2 by this time next year.

I didn't think much of his fight last night. Against a not very good Chazz, who was called up at the last moment, he showed that he didn't have much power at HW, and could only rely on his foot to find angles. He will face fighters with much bigger reach and much more power than an half-arsed Chazz, who didn't show anything.

Usyk only gets used to the weight class, so we will see, but I am not 100% confident, given the physical beasts in the division.

I don't think he was a massive puncher at CW to be fair.  But people seem to talk about him like he's a midget when he's a big guy at 6'3".  Taller than Ruiz for example.  And he weighed in at 215lbs which is heavier than Wilder normally is.

My one concern with him is he seems to take unnecessary shots sometimes.  I'd probably back him against the winner of Ruiz/AJ and Fury as well, but I could see him getting caught with something daft from Wilder.
