Hennessy: Price is a Novice To Where Tyson Fury Is

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY’S promoter Mick Hennessy has told David Price to forget about a clash between the two unbeaten British heavyweights for now.

Hennessy claims there is more chance of Fury challenging either Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko for one of their four world heavyweight titles than taking on domestic rival Price next year.

British champion Price, 29, declared his interest in facing Fury after his 82-second KO of Audley Harrison on Saturday.

But Hennessy has other plans for Fury, 24, who faces an unconfirmed opponent in Belfast on December 1, while Price fights Matt Skelton that same month.

He said: “Tyson is ranked in the top five with the WBC and has ­had a lot more fights and experience than Price, so we are looking at getting a world title fight.

“A fight against Price would probably be better if it happened for a world title.

“Price is a novice compared to where Tyson is right now.

“It’s ridiculous to call out Tyson after beating Audley which was a fight about money.”

[QUOTE=D-MiZe;12612478]Price is a novice? The guy that won a bronze medal at Beijing and has steam rolled through the competition so far, compared to a guy who turned pro as a 6ft9 in-fighter with no jab. Uppercutting himself to the…
