David Haye Backs Fury, Tells Him Keep Bashing Price

David Haye has urged Tyson Fury to continue trash talking after ruling himself out of a domestic showdown with rising star David Price.

Fury is potentially facing censure from the British Boxing Board of Control for a series of inflammatory, expletive-filled rants aimed at Price following his first-round demolition of Audley Harrison on Saturday night.

The emphatic nature of Price's victory - he disposed of Harrison in 82 seconds - led promoter Frank Maloney to suggest Haye was a realistic future opponent.

But Haye will only lace up his gloves to fight WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko and has no quarrel with Fury using Twitter and a TV interview to insult Price.

"I'm only going to fight someone whose name is Klitschko. I've had my domestic dust-ups," said the 32-year-old.

"What Fury is doing is good. The more he talks the bigger the fight with Price will be.

"He should keep talking because he isn't really fighting anyone at the moment.

"If you're not fighting anyone you need to do something to keep your name out there."
