The now former David Price rival Tyson Fury reacted within minutes of witnessing another destruction of his one-time nemesis to state just three words on Tony Thompson’s fifth round Echo Arena win – ‘Told you so.’
Fury, who is in talks for a massive heavyweight showdown with former world champion David Haye, was later asked to comment on the loss, before stating that Price, 30, has now found his level after disappointing yet again on home soil.
“David has no heart at all, I guess you can now call him a jacker!” Fury told World Boxing News.
“He can now go back to defending his British and Commonwealth titles and if Tony Thompson wants it after I knock out David Haye then he can have it too.”
The 24 year-old was long linked with Price as the two fighter’s paralleled their careers on the domestic scene, although as Fury has flourished on both sides of the Atlantic, Price has stagnated before heading backwards after two knockout losses.
A fight between the two is now a million miles away as Fury readies himself to tackle Haye, before eyeing up a world title challenge against either of the all-conquering Klitschko brothers in the next twelve months.
