Frank Maloney Discusses David Price, Tyson Fury Battle

By Luke Furman

Frank Maloney, promoter for British heavyweight prospect David Price (12-0, 10KOs), saw a new star emerge on Saturday night in Liverpool, when Price knocked out veteran John McDermott in one round. Price is now the mandatory challenger to British/Commonwealth champion Tyson Fury (17-0, 12KOs).

If Maloney wins the purse bid, he could see the fight taking place as early as March. The fight is mandated to take place before the money of May.

"I believe David will dominate the heavyweight division. Lennox Lewis dominated it in the 90s, David will dominate it now. We need a heavyweight who can dominate the division. He passed his A-level test. We now move to the next level. We saw a real heavyweight star born," Maloney said.

"Obviously we'll have one more fight before the Tyson Fury fight, unless we can get that made quick. The purse bid is set in a couple of weeks. [The fight] has to happen before May. If we win it, David will fight him in March, as soon as that, or someone in that period."
