Maloney Admits Price Has To Return To Domestic Level

David Price has suffered another huge career setback after being stopped inside five rounds by American veteran Tony Thompson in front of his home fans at the Echo Arena, Liverpool. Thompson proved his second round knockout in their previous heavyweight fight five months ago was no fluke as he produced a flurry of unanswered punches to end the contest in round five. Such an outcome looked unlikely after Price had knocked down the 41-year-old in round two, however the Maryland boxer came storming back to silence the partisan home crowd.

Aftwards, Price's promoter Frank Maloney said it was time for Price to take a step back and move back down to the domestic level.

"We've dropped out of the Premier League and we have to drop down to domestic and European level. We are all in shock and we will have to sit down and talk about what we do next. If David wants to go on, I'll stay loyal. If he doesn't, I may call it a day," Maloney told BoxNation.

[QUOTE=Simurgh]If he made the full contact with the baseball bat, yeah maybe... He landed at least 2 big 'hayemakers' - one in 3rd round and one in 12th. It was as clear as it gets. It's not like Wlad will stand there, put his hand down, not lean back once the contact is made. No 'coma...

All the talk about Price being finished and needing to retire is nuts. Not everyone can be a champion, or even a top 10 guy. Price was fed to the wolves way too early, probably has ruined him, even if he ever did have what it took to be a top guy, which is doubtful. But if he starts fighting t...

Price will never be a serious contender, I think people just need to admit it If he wants to carry on he can, he can fight and win matches, but he will also lose many if pitted against anyone with a solid chin, boxing brain. He will never be a HW champ

Price is done and was exposed..... He seems like a nice guy, but just isnt a natural fighter,, Relied to much on size and never properly learned the technique side of boxing..... Nor does he have the stamina to compete vs top guys......
