David Price-Tony Thompson Rematch is Set For July 6

DAVID PRICE will meet Tony Thompson in a rematch at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday 6th July.

Secret negotiations between Price’s promoter Frank Maloney and the Washington DC southpaw have been going on for two weeks.

Contracts for the big 12 round international heavyweight return were finally signed late on Tuesday night.

When the pair clashed last month, two-time world title challenger Thompson caused a monumental upset stopping the 6ft 8in scouser in the second round.

The fight will be televised live and exclusively in Britain on BoxNation.

Maloney said: “There was a rematch clause in the original contract, but it was still far from easy to make it happens.

"Because it was such a big win for Thompson there was a lot of interest in him from rival promoters, but we got there and he has signed.

“There were other options for David also, but he and his trainer Franny Smith were adamant they wanted Thompson again.

“There have been a lot of nasty things said about David since the first Thompson bout, but this proves his fighting heart.

 “Not many fighters have begged me to jump straight back in with someone who has beaten them.

 “The fans in Liverpool have been magnificent to David over the last 12 months and I am sure they will respond and get behind the fight.”

 British and Commonwealth champion Price’s loss against Thompson is his only setback in 16 professional battles.

 And a win will put him firmly back in the world title picture.

 Maloney will announce a top class undercard in the coming weeks along with details of a Liverpool press conference.

The Liverpool crowd will once again boo TT and give him the extra anger to KO Price again

I only wish Thompson could have fought this in his home country instead of going overseas again. Sad commentary on the HW interest here in the States.

Credit to Price for seeking an immediate rematch. Fair play to Thompson also for coming back over to Liverpool to fight..he must be getting a good pay day, which he deserves after causing the upset in the first fight. Its…

[QUOTE=LacedUp;13188212]The fight has been signed by both parties and confirmed.[/QUOTE] Not according to Tony Thompson unless that has been sorted out since yesterday, there was an article/interview that was posted on here yesterday that states nothing has been signed.

Price is going to get smashed again. Pointless fight from a fan perspective IMO, but at least Tony Thompson will get a decent payday while he still can.
