David Price is Ready To Fight as Soon as Possible

David Price is confident he will bounce back from his upset loss to Tony Thompson at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

The highly-rated Price was expected to retain his unbeaten record against Thompson but he was caught by a right-hand in the second round and the referee was forced to stop the fight because the British fighter was unsteady on his feet when he got up.

However, Price does not regard the defeat as a catastrophe and expects to be back in the ring soon.

Reflecting on the loss, he said: "I've been doing that to other people since I turned professional.

"It's heavyweight boxing, nobody's invincible. I'll come back from it.

"I didn't take a beating in there tonight - it was one of those shots. It caught my ear and my balance had gone. Sometimes it's best to come back as quickly as possible.

"I'm still the British and Commonwealth champion and, three fights down the line, this will be ancient history."

Good for Price. Jumping right back in the ring is a good sign of a strong mental attitude. I wish him luck.

[QUOTE=The Nephilim;13078815]I hate it when people boo other countries' anthems. So classless and dumb. Why rile the opponent up like that? Thompson said that hearing the anthem booed really inspired him to try to win the fight. Maybe before that…

[QUOTE=Andrew5550;13079134]Agreed. Yeah but i still Cant see Fury going the IBF/Wlad route. He's going for the green belt. Easier opposition, bigger chance of glory. Let's see.[/QUOTE] Considering he's VERY young and inexperienced, nobody should begrudge him going for Vitali rather…
