Maloney: Thompson is The Right Fight For David Price

As previously reported, David Price will face former world title challenger Tony Thompson in his next heavyweight bout. Price has had a fine 2012, stopping all four opponents, which included brutal knockouts of seasoned duo Audley Harrison and Matt Skelton in his last two bouts.

Despite being linked with domestic rival Tyson Fury, Price will next face another veteran in Thompson, 42, who has twice challenged Wladimir Klitschko for a portion of the world title, at Liverpool's Echo Arena on February 23.

"This is the right fight at the right time for David and one where a win will propel him even higher," said Price's promoter Frank Maloney on his official website. "Thompson still has ambition and I am certain that he will come to win and score a major upset."

The Thompson fight will mark a step up in class for the British and Commonwealth title holder, who has amassed a perfect 15-0 record, 13 of those wins coming inside the distance.

His American opponent suffered two knockouts against Klitschko, most recently in July this year, and has a record of 36 wins from 39 fights.

I'd back price over Adamek for sure. Sure he's not fought a fighter as good as Adamek yet, but I have a hunch that Price is gonna be a really good fighter. Just hope he stays away from Haye for a few more fights, he's not ready for that sexy bastard just yet.

I don't particularly rate Adamek highly either but to suggest Thompson beats him from pillar to post is absurd.

[QUOTE=dan_cov]I'm not kidding no. I think Thompson would probably beat Adamek at this point in their careers who I think is well on the decline, not a very good heavyweight and been in a lot of hard fights. I think his awkward southpaw style would give Adamek hell. Adameks had a very fortunat...

[QUOTE=ImFromInternet]Thompson has also lost to Eric Kirkland. Get your facts right. Thompson is only a baby step up from the last opponents.[/QUOTE] I didn't include that as it was a disputed decision extremely early in his career. Just like how B-Hop lost his debut, its pretty fcuking...
