THE CASE FOR FURY
High workrate, good movement and fast hands for such a big man. Would Price cope with a fellow 'man mountain' who could throw more shots per round and move in and out of range so well?
Brave, aggressive and confident. Fury comes to fight, is not afraid to take risks and would be the first guy not to be overawed by Price's reputation or size. Tyson is also the first guy who would get in Price's face and have the strength and mindset not to be batted away or intimidated.
Reach. Price cannot keep Fury pinned on the end of a long jab, Fury has a massive wingspan himself and can jab and score from distance as well.
Real Experience. Fury has been in with Chisora and Johnson and Price has been operating at a lower level; Sexton, Harrison and Skelton.
THE CASE FOR PRICE
Discipline and career management. Price has proved to be the model professional, working on his technique, fitness and not switching trainers or struggling to find the right diet or overall lifestyle. He's had far less distractions and a more settled, balanced rise to the top.
Power. Price can unhinge anyone with his natural power and has the confidence and technical ability to throw accurate power shots that don't leave him exposed or that sap his stamina. He delivers clinical, real punching power that does not involve slugging/taking big risks.
Mentality and following a gameplan. There is a case for saying that Price would cope with the hype better, come to the fight with the ability to follow at least a execute a couple of gameplans that would secure victory. Would the more mature Price find a way to win and has Fury finally got over those 'red mist' moments which made those fights with Firtha far riskier than they ever needed to be?
I am going for Price.....7 round TKO.
