David Price hopes for two fights before end of year; sees himself facing loser of Haye-Fury next year
By James Slater
David Price, still the British and Commonwealth heavyweight champ despite his back-to-back stoppage losses to Tony Thompson, told Sky Sports’ Ringside show how he hopes to have two fights before the end of this year. Price said last night that he wants to fight in November and then maybe again in December. “I want to be in the ring, I need rounds, eight or ten, with me maybe losing a couple of those rounds,”Price said. “But fights not topping the bill in Liverpool all the time. After I get a couple of wins, a realistic fight for me is the loser of the David Haye-Tyson Fury fight, which I feel will be Fury.”
Price added how he is currently speaking with a number of boxing trainers and that he will come to a decision on just who will replace Franny Smith in a couple of weeks. Despite his losses to Thompson, fans would likely warm to the idea of Price, as levelheaded as they come, rumbling with even a no longer unbeaten Tyson Fury.
