If he loses against Price or Fury what can he say then? It would destroy his ego and he wouldn't be able to live with that.
Both Price or Fury would be big money fights so he can't use money as an excuse either.
No it's just that if he fights Vitali and loses, yes he can say he lost to the best HW since LL. If he wins, he's a world champion. If he fights DP or TF and loses, he loses everything but if he wins the gains will be small. Plus, the money aren't that great. Neither DP or TF are household names in the UK and he could, maybe, make half what he did against Chisora whereas fighting Vitali would make him closer to what he made against Wlad/Audley + the gain is much more. Simple, really.
