David Price's Trainer: We'd Demolish Tyson Fury in Two!

by Edward Chaykovsky

Franny Smith, trainer of David Price (12-0, 10KOs), lashed out at Tyson Fury (18-0, 13KOs), who recently took a few verbal swipes at Price. Smith is not impressed with Fury at all. Price was at one time ordered to face Fury for the British heavyweight title, but Fury vacated the crown. This Saturday, Price faces Sam Sexton (15-2, 6KOs) for the vacant British title at the Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool. Smith considers Sexton to be a much tougher test than Fury.

“He’ll probably get a job at Christmas in one of the pantomimes because that is where he’s best suited. A boxing ring is not really where it’s happening for him. Fury takes it that seriously he spars his brothers and then brags about it. I think he only had Dillian Whyte there (in his last training camp) who was actually a boxer. He’s a bizarre individual," Smith told the Liverpool Echo.

“But let’s get real, it’s a joke. We were planning to have a real laugh with him in the build up to the fight because that’s what kind of character he is. The reason we wanted the fight was because it would be like walking into the bank and the bank manager handing you a cheque. We would have demolished him within two rounds. Sam Sexton is a more difficult fight than Tyson Fury. Sam Sexton is better than Tyson Fury.”

I think Price would beat Fury, but I dont believe Sexton is a tougher fight than Fury. That's rubbish. Sexton is basic in every way. At least Fury can match Price's size.

[QUOTE=fladz;12129860] Sadly Fury has started to believe the hype all too quickly, he seems to think he's within reach of the big guys, but he's nowhere near.[/QUOTE] He's been calling out Povetkin for about 8 months now; doubt it'll ever…

[QUOTE=Wesker115;12129555]But for what it's worth, I think Fury is showing a renewed level of determination now. He's in good shape and is keeping active, nowhere near the bum he's made out to be on here, but still lacking in experience.[/QUOTE]…
