David Price: Booth Will Bring Out My True Potential

British heavyweight champion David Price will be trained by Adam Booth in a bid to resurrect his career. Price lost twice to American Tony Thompson this year after storming through the domestic division with a series of early knockouts. However, veteran Thompson exposed the former Olympic bronze medallist's flaws, with the 30-year-old subsequently deciding to part with long-time trainer Franny Smith. With Price's world title ambitions in tatters, the Liverpudlian giant has tasked Booth with the opportunity to help him rebuild.

"To begin with I contacted a handful of world-class trainers and asked Adam if I could have a chat and perhaps get some advic," said Price, who remains British and Commonwealth champion. "When I first turned pro I was signed by Hayemaker and only left because of the television situation at the time. Adam pointed me in the right direction after that - and advised me to go with Frank Maloney - and I've always valued his opinion.

"So, after a brief chat, I brought up the idea of him possibly training me and we decided to have a meeting. I assumed he wanted to see what kind of frame of mind I was in. We did a few sessions together just to see how it would work, and he then agreed to train me. I was made up about that because I know Adam is very selective when it comes to choosing fighters to work with. I've got a good feeling about this move, and truly believe Adam is the man to bring out my true potential."

Kind of feel for Booth. He has to address Price's footwork, guard, jab, conditioning, and, importantly, the guy's heart.

Booth needs to teach him how to use his jab like the Klitschko's use their jab. Use it to hide the right hand and use it often.

Price almost changed his destiny in the Thompson rematch. Almost.

I don't know how Adam Booth could fix his stamina problems.
