Is David Price the next Audley Harrison, or Wladimir Klitschko?

Almost as soon as David Price was waved off and into a TKO5 this weekend, boxing's conventional wisdom became that the British Olympic medalist was never cut out for pro competition, and that his time was done.

Audley Harrison a disappointing “step up” for Deontay Wilder

For at least the last year and a half, fight fans have wondered when American heavyweight Deontay Wilder was going to take a step up. Wilder was the only medal winner from America's blighted Beijing team, capturing a bronze, and has racked up a 27-0 record since turning pro.
