David Haye: Price Can Beat Fury in The Klitschko Race

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID HAYE insists David Price can beat Tyson Fury in the race to rip the world heavyweight crowns from the Klitschko brothers.

The Hayemaker, 31, says he will stick to his retirement after hanging up his gloves last month following July’s points defeat to rival world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Unbeaten Brit stars Price, 28, and Fury, 23, are aiming to get a shot at the Germany-based Ukrainian pair Wladimir, 35, and Vitali, 40, who between them hold all four versions of the world title.

British and Commonwealth heavyweight champ Fury got up off the deck before blasting out Canadian Neven Pajkic in the third round last weekend.

But Haye believes the older 2008 Olympic bronze medal winner Price is the most likely to earn a shot at the Klitschkos first.

Haye is tipping the unbeaten Liverpool boxer to be ready for world No.1 Wladimir in two years. Price faces Essex’s John McDermott in an eliminator for Fury’s domestic title on January 21.

Haye said: “In two years’ time he will be European champion.

“If he beats McDermott he will prove he’s the best of the rest who can stop the Klitschkos.”
