Respect your opinion mate, but i dont agree any 4 of those you named have done a lot to show me they are much better than Thompson. I know Adamek is a better fighter but not at this weight and Povetkin is just a paper champion who has struggled against real dross. At the end of the day the whole division is poor and although the fighters you mentioned would be good tests, you know as well as i do they are not gonna risk their rankings with someone as hard hitting as Price, so Thompson is about as good as it gets.
