David Price has announced he has parted company with long-time trainer Franny Smith.

Changes to Price's team had been expected following back-to-back defeats to Tony Thompson this year, setting back the Liverpool heavyweight's career.

The 30-year-old remains British and Commonwealth champion and has vowed to continue his quest to reach the top of the tree, but will do so without Smith.

"Franny will always be more than just a trainer to me, I consider him as a very close friend so making this decision was extremely hard, he did a fantastic job making me the first Liverpudlian British & Commonwealth heavyweight champion," Price said.

"I have made up my mind that I have to start a new chapter in my career and I am sad that I will be starting this without Franny, but for me to achieve my goal as heavyweight champion of the world, I feel that I need a change.

"Franny has always been a huge part of my career and after discussion we've agreed that this is the best way forward."

It remains to be seen whether Frank Maloney will be retained as promoter. Maloney has said that Price's decision will determine whether he continues in the game.

[QUOTE=FrankieBruno]Nobody doubts Price power However his ability to take punches, stamina and basically heart (he quit in the ring) have huge questions marks. Also he doesn't know how to properly box, and given his age, how much more can he really advance Comparing him to Wlad is useles...

[QUOTE=joe strong]He hit a wall in his career & a change in trainers may help some but in my opinion the person to blame is frank maloney for putting his 15 fight crown jewel in with a legit contender. There is something to work with still. He's got an eraser right hand so he will always have a p...

If David gets knocked out by another B level fighter then its him not the trainer. But I guess he can try something new if he thinks that will help..more power to you

Defend the commonwealth belt vs alex leapai or lucas browne in australia then neven pajkic in canada... On the road, 2 decent opponents who will punch back but they are totally winnable fights. At this point a tomato can is pointless. He needs a couple domestic title fights that challenge him som...
