Fury Camp Not Interested in Price Fight, For Now

Tyson Fury's trainer has told David Price to forget about facing his fighter in the near future.

Price remains keen to battle British rival Fury this year and his promoter Frank Maloney is willing to pay up to £1million to stage a heavyweight summer showdown in Liverpool or London.

But Peter Fury, who trains Tyson, insists the Wilmslow man is focusing on a world title shot and has no interest in fighting Liverpudlian Price in his own backyard.

Fury extended his unbeaten record to 20 fights in December with a win over Kevin Johnson and his uncle believes he has proven himself more than Price, who tackles another tough American, Tony Thompson on 23 February.

He told World Boxing News: "First of all Anfield is a no - and £1m means nothing to us.

"As I have said before, we will take Price on when he's achieved where Tyson is now. We are going for a title this year and that is our focus.

"Price is nowhere near the level that Tyson has reached and as far as I am concerned, Maloney needs to stop using his own fighter for PR off Tyson's back when he knows full well the fight's not happening and in making these offers is fooling the fans with his nonsense.

"Maloney waves money in public with a distasteful tact without realising that not everyone jumps for a pound like some we could mention!"

[QUOTE=gmc_rfc_06;12907448]Unless Price landed first, of course. Being completely honest, I don't think Fury or Price will ever be good enough to challange Wlad. Both of them have big holes in their game that will be exposed. Price has huge power…
