Maloney, Price Make Big Push For Tyson Fury Clash

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID PRICE and Tyson Fury are on course for a megabucks ‘Battle of Britain’ this summer – possibly at Liverpool’s Anfield stadium.

The proposed tussle, that could see the fighters share £1m, will go to purse bids next month, with the British Boxing Board of Control saying it must take place by the end of June.

And heavyweight Scouser Price, 29, is ready to rumble with Fury, 24, saying: “I can’t wait and it would be great to have it staged at Anfield, with me being a fanatical Liverpool fan.

“Fighting at Anfield has always been a dream of mine and now it could be a dream that turns into reality – here’s hoping!”

Unbeaten Price meets American Tony Thompson at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on February 23 and is already looking ahead to a big domestic dust-up with Fury.

Kop fanatic Price added: “I have supported Liverpool all my life and it would be marvellous to fight at their ground.”

Price’s promoter Frank Maloney said: “The purse bids for Price-Fury have been put back until February.

“They were due to be opened this week but it would have meant the fight having to take place by the end of March.

“This fight with Thompson was already made and if we had won the purse bids it would have given Fury a chance to pull out.

“The fight has to take place by the end of June, which is sensible because it is not an arena fight – this is a football stadium fight outdoors.

“If I was representing Tyson Fury, I wouldn’t want to meet David Price and I don’t blame his promoter Mick Hennessy for possibly dodging the fight.”

Price said of his upcoming bout: “If I can do a number on Thompson it will send a massive message around the world.”

How are they contracted to fight each other, since the fight has been 'ordered'?

[QUOTE=gmc_rfc_06;12904263]Let's do it. I don't believe Fury wants this fight, as an L would shoot a hole in his world title chance.[/QUOTE] Maybe, but financially I don't think a Klitschko slave contract is going to be worth any more to…

Is this set in stone or something that can be wriggled out of as easily as most boxing "obligations"?
