David Price dismisses retirement talk, focuses on “big rebuilding operation”

Heavyweight David Price (15-2, 13 KOs) has dismissed any notion that will hang up the gloves after two consecutive KO defeats have left his career in shreds. “There are people asking me if I’m going to spew it but that’s just crazy,” Price told his hometown newspaper the Liverpool Echo. “You lose two fights on the bounce to Tony Thompson – and a good Tony Thompson on Saturday because he ground me down and proved he’s still got it – and people talk about retirement but that’s just mad. I will rebuild. I’m not in the best situation but I’m not in the worst.”

He also stated, “It’s going to have to be a big rebuilding operation now because last time it was viewed as a blip. I’m kind of on the scrapheap as far as the business is concerned and I understand that. I can probably afford to have a couple of low profile fights out of the way and get some rounds in the bank. That element of excitement will always be there with me but I need to learn how to control bouts. There is a lot I’ve got to do.”
