Price To Fury: Keep Talking, You Are Building The Fight

David Price has branded Tyson Fury a "playground bully" following his heavyweight rival's abusive rant at the weekend.

British and Commonwealth champion Price's first-round knockout of Audley Harrison on Saturday was met by a barrage of insults from undefeated Fury on television.

Former champion Fury, who gave up both titles last February while Price was mandatory challenger, continued his outburst on Twitter and now faces disciplinary action.

"He's idiotic and giving the sport a bad name the way he's running round like a playground bully," Price said. "We are grown men and no-one bullies anyone as far as I'm concerned.

"There is a genuine dislike for each other and that is going to make for a great fight.

"I say keep talking, because he's building the fight. The things he's saying aren't bothering me in the slightest.

"It's like dealing with a kid at school talking absolute nonsense.

"I'd take the fight this week but the reality is it's more likely to happen next summer some time. Let Tyson do his promotional work on Twitter or whatever else and I'll let my fists do the talking."

Some good insight from Price. Definitely doesn't sound like the trash talk is getting to him at all.

Well said, Price, well said. I like Fury, he probably doesn't even take himself very seriously. Funny thing is, he was clearly ducking Price initially. But now this big stiff plumber from Liverpool is gonna get it.

Price got rocked hard in sparring recently by a right hand from Pulev.

[QUOTE=Sage84;12615354]Its common knowledge he has a weak chin? Really? Is it really common knowledge? No, it simply isn't known yet, we haven't seen his chin checked....and please don't go on about the amateurs, that proves nothing, and certainly doesn't make…
