Maloney Denies Price Received a Tyson Fury Offer

Frank Maloney has denied that David Price was offered a fight with Tyson Fury.

British and Commonwealth heavyweight champ Fury reportedly claimed Price's camp passed on the chance for a showdown in Belfast over the weekend.

But Maloney claims that's wide of the mark, and says: "I never received any offer in writing or verbally from Tyson's promoter for David to face him on Saturday night.

"I saw Tyson quoted saying David had said 'no' to the Belfast fight, but that is rubbish. Nobody has been in touch.

"I can only imagine that Tyson's promoter was dreaming he made the offer and got a little confused."

Olympic bronze medallist Price (11-0) defeated Fury when they were amateurs, and he boxes John McDermott (26-7) in a final eliminator for the British crown at Liverpool Olympia on Saturday November 19 (live on Sky Sports).

Maloney added: "In fairness I would have turned the offer down if it did exist unless it was a staggering amount.

"If David comes through Big John I want to promote the fight against Fury myself as it will become a level playing field and go to purse bids.

"I know what it is worth and if David is still unbeaten after November 19 I will be bidding big to stage it in Liverpool."
