I've a feeling he's going to be matched carefully until a Wlad fight late next year or early 2013. Too much money at stake.

exactamon, the commonwealth belt is on the line in this one.
If you look at how busy Fury is being having not defended his British title in this time is more than forgivable when you look at the gap in between fights some champions have. Saying that though does allude to the notion that the majority of Fury's fights have been "tune ups" but he is still developing as a fighter and is improving imo.
At each point in his career McDermott was a test and so was Chisora at their respective times. A few warm up bouts to improve his skills is quite savvy, before he either defends against someone like Price, or opts to get it on with Perez....
It's too soon to consider world level despite the overall state of the division, but if he can continue improving and keeping busy there is no reason why he can't go on to take on a few of the American contenders like Chambers and Arreola, if he fairs well against them and the Klits are still around then have a pop but we know the outcome already.
It's all subjective to how he develops but his team are going about it in the right way I reckon
