David Price at MSG in March, Then Fury in April or May?

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID PRICE is set for a dream Madison Square Garden debut after sensationally knocking out John McDermott in 73 seconds.

The Olympic bronze medallist’s triumph in front of his hometown fans at Liverpool Olympia won him the English heavyweight title and earned a shot at British and Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury.

Before tackling his fellow unbeaten rival, Price could box on the Sergio Martinez-Matthew Macklin undercard in New York on March 17.

Promoter Frank Maloney said: “The Fury fight is unlikely to happen until late April or May, so David will box in March and there is a real possibility that fight will be in America.

“I have spoken to a ­couple of American promoters, Lou DiBella and Kathy Duva. I am going over to meet them next week to try and finalise something.

“He could fight on Lou’s show at Madison Square Garden or there is another bill in Texas around the same time which would give exposure on American terrestrial television.”

Price and Maloney fear that Fury may avoid their clash by relinquishing both titles after his career-best display against McDermott.

Price said: “Fury will want to fight to save face because he knows his ‘fighting man’ reputation will go if he avoids me.

“I think his management might go a different route, but I hope they don’t. It is a fight the public want to see and that I want.”
