And that might play against him. It's a very intriguing rematch that's for sure.Nice, make-or-break for David. I thought he'd bang Thompson out first time round but you can guarantee he'll be cautious as hell this time.
Agree, Wlad is probably the blueprint how Price will fight. Thompson on the other hand might try and get up in his grill early on to exploit his lack of confidence.And that might play against him. It's a very intriguing rematch that's for sure.
Fair play to both for taking it.
@Earl-HickeyI wonder if Hickey will be as ballsy as Price is in going for an immediate rematch by actually picking Thompson to KO him this time? :think
Yeah it's already been signed apparently.Is this official? Really glad if so, getting right back on that bike. Make or break. Grande cojones.
http://www.sylvanaboxing.com/tonyprice.htmlWe have seen in recent hours a rumour circulating that the Tony Thompson vs. David Price rematch could be very close to being made and that a date even has been set of 6th July. SylvanaBoxing.com spoke to Tony Thompson tonight to find out how much truth was behind this.
"I really don't know where this rumour has started! I haven't even seen a contract yet." Apparently, "there is NO truth in this rumour at all!"
So when we asked if he was aware, no rematch will be made between Tony Thompson and David Price as of right now.
"Where is everyone hearing this at? Nope not at all, like I say, I haven't seen a contract" so as far as he is aware, no fight is on. "Tell them you heard it from me, I haven't signed a thing, yes nothing has been signed by me" says Thompson
So it seems that this highly anticipated fight is, at the moment, nothing more than rumour and speculation! We will have to wait to see if it can be made in the future, but for now, it looks like it could be a while! "I'm not saying until I get some real offers on the table". We heard it from Tony Thompson.
Migh t not be able to say it's happening until its announced
Surely he would just decline to comment or give a vague sort of answer in that case.Migh t not be able to say it's happening until its announced
But if it wasnt happening he wouldnt put that much emphasis on it, hes overly trying to prove itSurely he would just decline to comment or give a vague sort of answer in that case.
I'm not sure how reliable that website is, mind you.
So we've managed to ascertain that you're a ***.No psychology degree but i have series1-3 of lie to me recorded on sky ;-)
David Price is out for revenge over Tony Thompson
Their first fight ended in a shock result and a first career defeat for David Price, and now we're all set for a summer blockbuster LIVE and EXCLUSIVE from Liverpool's Echo Arena on July 6th as Price and Tony Thompson face off once again.
It was the same venue that was stunned into silence in February when American veteran Tony Thompson caught Price beneath the ear and sent him to the canvas (above).
Though the 6ft 8in Liverpudlian made it back to his feet, he looked wobbly and the 41-year-old Thompson scored an unlikely second round TKO.
The defeat was a setback to Price, who will now be out for revenge on July 6th live and exclusive on the Channel of Champions, BoxNation.
Price had troubled Thompson during their February fight and, after a relatively low key first round, looked to have landed some damaging blows in the second. Part way through the round, the then 15 - 0 fighter backed his opponent into the ropes and unleashed a fearsome torrent of shots that looked like they could end the fight themselves.
But Thompson recovered well, and capitalised on Price's lowly left hand to get through with a clean shot to the neck and jaw line of the rangy Scouser; the punch was later revealed to have perforated Price's ear drum.
Price isn't the first British heavyweight to have suffered a surprise defeat. In 1994, the then 25 - 0 Lennox Lewis was shocked as he was stopped in the second round against Oliver McCall when defending the WBC World Heavyweight title.
And David Haye was 10 - 0 and then fighting as a cruiserweight when he was TKO'd in the fifth by 40-year-old Carl Thompson in a fight that has many parallels with Price's loss to Thompson.
Both Lewis and Haye recovered to become heavyweight champions of the world, and the first step for David Price would be a revenge win over Tony Thompson.
No.David Haye was 10 - 0 and then fighting as a cruiserweight when he was TKO'd in the fifth by 40-year-old Carl Thompson in a fight that has many parallels with Price's loss to Thompson.
