Price Looking At Fury Clash In ’18
David Price hopes a comeback victory on December 2nd will be the first step towards a long-awaited grudge match against Tyson Fury.
Price returns to the ring this weekend at MTK Global’s ‘Pride & Glory’ fight night, from the Brentwood Centre in Essex.
Topping the bill in his first bout since suffering a stoppage loss to Christian Hammer last February, Price makes his comeback against tough Polish journeyman Kamil Sokolowski.
Price is managed by MTK Global, which just landed Fury as a client last weekend.
Price defeated Fury as an amateur and the pair traded words over social media recently as both men suggested they would be keen on finally clashing in the paid ranks.
“If that’s something that Tyson Fury is serious about, I’d love the opportunity to finally get in the ring again with him and put the rivalry to bed,” said Price.
“You have to be realistic, though – he’s the lineal heavyweight champion and I’ve got to prove my worth.”
“I’m sure I’m going to do that in the next couple of fights and the heavyweight division is changing all the time. A few fights down the line, a fight against Fury would be massive for boxing again. I just have to get my name back out there again with a good couple of wins and it will capture the public’s imagination.”
“We’ve got history, but, to be fair, when it became apparent that we’d no longer be likely to fight each other, naturally we warmed to each other. That tends to happen in boxing and we actually quite like each other at the moment. But if we were to fight each other, I’m sure it would only take one cross word for us to be worst enemies again!”
Price headlines a busy night of action on Saturday night as 16 bouts feature on the ‘Pride & Glory’ bill, with seven MTK Global fighters in action.
