David Price Calls Time On Boxing Career
Boxing veteran David Price has announced retirement from the sport.
The 38-year-old, who was dubbed as the “next big thing” for the heavyweight division, said that he has no intentions of returning to the ring again.
“Well I haven’t officially announced that I’ve retired, but I have,” Price told BT Sports. “I’m not going to be fighting again. That was only officially made up in my mind about six weeks ago. A few factors came into it. I’m 38, and the hunger was no longer there.”
The Englishman believes that other boxers are still in the game because they want to taste more glory, however, his days are long gone.
“That’s massive, which is why your elite fighters like Tyson, like Canelo, like AJ, they have got as much money as they will ever need,” Price said.
“But that hunger is still there. That’s because they are fighting for glory. The glory had gone in my career. You won’t see me in a boxing ring again, for a fight at least,” he continued.
Price shared the ring with juggernauts of the sport such as Alexander Povetkin, Derek Chisora and Tony Thompson.
His decorated resume includes an Olympic bronze medal in Beijing in 2008 and a Commonwealth gold medal at Melbourne in 2006. He also won gold at the EU Championships in Cetniewo in 2008.
