To be fair, Thompson doesn't get enough praise. He's no ATG, but he isn't a bum. He's really only lost to Wlad twice (the first fight being pretty harsh for Wlad) whilst hes been at the top of his career.

Price was just one of those fighters that people seem to think are Britain's next hope. In reality, him and Fury are relatively unknown. The big fighters for us are Froch, Khan and Haye. Froch needs no justification, he's a warrior, as is Khan, willing to fight anybody. Haye is the 2nd/3rd best heavyweight out there. People think he was dominated by Wlad, when in reality, it was only Wlad's jab that won that fight. Nothing of any note was landed, apart from one or two right hands, in the whole fight between them. If you call that domination, then your agenda is pretty big. He gets a lot of flak for that fight because of the pre-fight hype he made, and delivered a boring performance, as did Wlad. He doesn't get flak for being dominated by Wlad.

We don't need to justify our top fighters, they do it themselves. This US/UK rivalry thing is pathetic.
There seemed to be a general consensus among many posters that Price would even take over after Wlad. I actually made a thread on this last year, and around 80 percent of people said Price could take over and dominate the hw division in the future (rather than other contenders).
Nobody talked about Fury in that thread (maybe 1 or 2 posters).

You also mention the Wlad-Haye fight.
Wlad outclassed Haye in every department and made him look timid, to say the least. It was a masterpiece performance by Wlad (courtesy of Steward).

And Haye is done, deal with it.

Just try and tell me that the British viewers who tuned in (let alone those seated in the arena) didn't get stunned by the shock of that KO.

It seems like Brits do an absurdly amount of sucking up to Americans.

And Haye is done, deal with it.
But still performed heaps better than Vitali in their recent ountings against a common opponent. Not done, just lost on the night.
