Maloney Praises David Price For His Holiday Training

FRANK MALONEY says David Price and his trainer Franny Smith are two of the best professionals he has ever worked with.

The British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion faces world ranked American Tony Thompson at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday 23rd February 2012 in a 12 round international heavyweight contest.

Despite training for four 12 round contests last year, 6ft 8in Price (15-0) took just a week off following November’s win over Matt Skelton.

Maloney said: “David and Franny are a dream team and stayed in the gym over Christmas and New Year.

“After the Skelton fight they asked if the Thompson fight could be delayed until March to allow David a longer rest.

“We tried to switch the date, but the venue had no available dates and there were no complaints from them.

“They just said ‘okay’, and got on with it like the true professionals that they are.
“Some fighters you have to be calling up and checking what they are doing, but I can rest knowing David is doing everything correct.”

Price, 29, is now ranked 9th in world by the WBC and rapidly closing in on the heavyweight divisions big guns, Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko.

Southpaw Thompson (36-3) brings a wealth of experience and has knocked out 24 of his opponents.

Two of his defeats came against Wladimir Klitschko in world titles challenges. Back in July 2008 he lost in 11 rounds and earlier this year was beaten in six.

Thompson is ranked 10th in the IBF world rankings.

In the chief supporting bout, another Liverpool boxer Kevin Satchell (9-0) will defend his British and Commonwealth flyweight titles against Belfast’s Luke Wilton (13-2-1).

Top British light-welterweight contender Adil Anwar (18-1) will box a ten rounder against a selected opponent.

There will be a press conference in Liverpool next week to announce other boxers on the bill including another British championship contest.

Tickets can be purchased £230 (VIP including meal and inner ringside seat), £95 (Ringside), £70 and £40 at www.echoarena.com www.frankmaloney.com or 0844 8000 400.

Have a bit of a hard time thinking Thompson is such a huge step up as people go on about. What did Thompson do, beat Chazz Witherspoon? No disrespect, but Thompson is frankly old and shot, way past it. Why does Price keep figthing old men.

I don't want to disrespect Price as he is a prospect but what happened to the days when boxers where fighting regularly Price only had 4 fights last year and less than a round against Audley Harrison so very inactive back in the 50's 60's 70's and 80's fighters where fighting 8 - 12 fights per y...
