Fury: No more beef with Price, he beats Thompson by KO

Phil Jay 07/02/2013

In his recent in-depth interview with WBN, unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury has already signalled his intention to never fight a Klitschko brother and revealed a substantial offer from Frank Warren to fight David Price on BoxNation.

The 24 year-old has now stated his intention to stop all animosity towards British rival Price and hopes to one day share a ring with the Liverpudlian in a super-fight worth millions of pounds to both boxers.

Fury, who fights for the 21st time professionally against former crusierweight world champion Steve Cunningham on April 20, believes Price, 29, is destined to do big things in the division and backs the British title holder to come through Tony Thompson later this month.

“I want to state now that I don’t want any more beef with David Price,” Fury told World Boxing News.

“I have know him since our amateur days since we were 15 year-old. He is a fellow-boxer and a good fighter.

“Price is fighting a proven heavyweight in Tony Thompson, who has only lost to the Klitschko’s so it’s a test for him, but I think he wins in six or seven rounds.

“It will be a good win for him and I think he can go far in the division,” he added.

The two have endured a chequered past to say the least, as the British public cry out for them to face each other in what would be the biggest heavyweight contest that the UK has seen since Lennox Lewis fought Frank Bruno.

The former Irish title holder believes that both stand to make a hefty sum by building the fight up even further for the next couple of years and agrees that it is just a matter of time before the fight does go ahead.
