I thinks its a decent fight for Price to start the year with. Thompson is a recognisable name, and a win will get Price a bit more attention in America.
I think we will see both Price and Fury facing better competition towards the back end of 2013.

Aintree or Echo?
Decent step up for Price.
Thompson doesn't come to survive, so hopefully this'll be fun whilst it lasts

Thompson is definitely a proper name.
He also has the experience against some OK-ish men and will at least come to fight and win.... because, when you've faced WK in Germany in some major stadium fights, you ain't going to worry and shiver about DP in Liverpool.
But, the cynical side of me says TT is 40, he's probably not made a great deal of money from the game, and he now needs to roll the dice and beat a young, dangerous contender in his own backyard to get a third crack at the world title or just land a few late, big bucks.
Price wins this one, but he may have to go the distance and take his first proper lumps. The far bigger, 'live' threats to DP are Pulev, Fury, Haye, Helenius, Wilder and possibly Boystov and a fully-fit, focussed Solis.

Tony Thompson is old. But he's big and strong and has a very awkward southpaw style, so the experience of fighting him will be beneficial for Price.

Good opponent and a live dog too IMO
Tall, experienced, durable southpaw with decent power who has only really lost to Wladimir, I don't think we can ask for more at this stage & I truly believe Thompson is a lot better than Johnson, despite his age and certainly lightyears ahead of anything Wilders faced.

This is a joke fight. I'd expect Tunney to know better but for whatever reason he's pretending its legit.
We know Price can ko old men and tomato cans, its time he step up. Kubrat Pulev is a guy he needs to go after. He's only got 17 fights himself. Yeah, I know they're both trying to hit the Klitschko lottery but fighting a bunch of scrubs ko victims isn't going to prepare them for that or help them improve.
I'd prefer even someone like Peter or Chisora than fuck ass Tony Thompson who is nothing.
