David Price on Fury's Fear, Haye's Speed on Chisora

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID PRICE says he has got more chance of a future fight against Tyson Fury than with David Haye or Dereck Chisora.

Liverpool’s 2008 Olympic bronze medallist faces Norwich’s Sam Sexton for the vacant British heavyweight title on Saturday after Fury vacated the belt just when purse bids were due to be accepted to stage a defence against Price.

Price, 28, still hopes to one day meet his unbeaten rival Fury after accusing the Morecambe boxer of ducking him.

He said: “I think Tyson has seen me fight and knows it’s too dangerous for him to fight me. Hopefully we can make it happen further down the line.

“There’s more chance of me fighting Tyson than there is me against Chisora or Haye because they have been in world title fights recently. I’ve got a while to go before I get to that level.

“But I believe I’m as good as any of them and could get in the ring with them and compete, but me and Tyson are at similar stages of our careers at the moment and is makes more sense.

“The likelihood of meeting David Haye is very thin but if Chisora loses he will go back down to European or British level.”

Price sparred with Chisora before the Londoner’s points loss to WBC world champion Vitali Klitschko in February and he has also sparred with former WBA king Haye.

The Scouser reckons Haye will settle his differences with Chisora by a stoppage win at Upton Park on July 14.

He said: “Haye will be on the same level as Chisora and could catch him on the chin.

“Haye has got the skills and power and I think his speed and reflexes – with Chisora not being the fastest – will be crucial.”

Seems like Price has some respect for Hayes ability. I also think Haye will win by stoppage as Chisora is highly overrated. A fight with Fury, for Price, is still a year and a half away, i just wonder if…

I think once you know the basics of boxing then fear of a fist fight goes out the window, thats why bullies only pick on people who dont know how to fight or dont want to fight.

I am not a fighter by any means, but Chisora does not intimidate me one bit. I'm same height but about 180lbs, but if he said he'd slap me I'd just throw punches at his massive head til he or…
