    Wouldn’t surprise me at all to be honest.

    it’s so frustrating to hear people claim that price is a different fighter in the gym cuz every time I see him step In the ring a small part of me thinks right this is the one this is fight he’s gonna show it. For some reason I want him to do well but it just doesn’t happen. He looked ok against povetkin I thought until that went south. Yeh he looked good against Allen but I feel he should of anyway he’s levels above and far too rangy for someone like Allen.

    Thing is I think Del Boy will win myself and that he’s better at what he does then price is at what he does


    I want British fighters to do well but I will put my money on the guy who’s gonna have the most potential to do something, even if Chisora is getting old now

    Both Chisora and Price seem to have gained a second wind in their careers at 35+yo, have they found Chiron laboratories? I wonder whether the fight is under VADA rules to just UKAD?

    Tyrone been juicing for the last decade minimum, never going to pass LOL
    shame the money is in boxing, Sponge way more fun under K1 rules, and its way more exciting to watch too

    Yeah he was a middleweight when he started out in K1 I think, then stepped up to heavyweight just before the 2010 GP

    Overeem just out sized him in the quarter final when he was Ubereem

    I think he’s switched to boxing due to the leg break Noel

    yep, vicious little bastard, that leg break fooked him (back in '14) but in general its why people move. Nigel Benn told me he wished K1/MMA had been about as hed have rather done that, and ive had a couple of guys go Pro Boxing as the money per fight is light years ahead. Still there is some money at least - better than it was. I just rarely find boxing better than k1 or thai ...the odd fight but its just one dimensional and dull for the most part. not doubting the skill just i think as a spectator sport its way better, just look at old fights with Aerts or Hoost. or Mike Zambis, or Hunt vs Sefo.....could waffle on all day

    But the B sample was tested clear by a VADA approved lab. According to his tweets.

    This is it. He used his jab very well against Allen, but then youd expect him to wouldnt you.

    I dont think he has the power to keep a unit like Chisora off him for the whole fight

    Did you watch Spence Porter recently? Great fight, proper war.
