I very respectfully disagree. There is a fine line between many experiences that tell us "we are ready" and the brass ring only comes up on the Merry-go-round so many times..... Price either has the talent to persevere, or not. It would not be horrible to lose to a Klitschko as long as he gave a good account of himself. A fight with Chisora...a fight I would love to see in principle (being a Del Boy fan of sorts) would be a bad move....What does he gain? Aereola would be a great fight for him and either Klitschko! He has the youth and drive he needs to suck it up and see where he stands.
The crop of young heavies coming up are good lads but Price has much more natural ability. He can throw himself in the mix and maybe have a bad night and lose a year....if you follow me, or....he can move ahead of the group and lead by having a good outing against a Klitschko.
