DAVID PRICE knows he could be celebrating his 30th birthday on the boxing scrapheap.

The 6ft 8in Scouser bids for revenge against Tony Thompson at Liverpool’s Echo Arena tomorrow night – four months after the American belted him inside two rounds.

“This fight will be the making of me or the breaking of me,” said the British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, who won his first 15 pro fights.

“I have got a lot to gain by winning, but a lot more to lose if it goes wrong.

“The risk outweighs the reward in this situation because it is a massive risk.

“If I was to lose against Tony Thompson again, it would be difficult to find a way back, but if I win, it’ll put me back to where I was in February.”

Price hits the big 3-0 on fight night and plans to celebrate his birthday with a seven-day lads holiday in Las Vegas later this month.

After suffering such a heavy loss when Thompson’s right hand detonated on his ear, Price could be excused for having a belly filled with fear when he sees his rival in the ring.

However, Price has promised his 6,000-strong army of supporters he will be going for a revenge KO.

The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist added: “Some fighters come back after a KO and they can be gun-shy, and I have to be a tad cautious because of the way the first fight ended. But it is not in my nature to be gunshy, because if I do go in like that I will get beat up.

“Attack is my best form of defence, so I am going to go in there, hurt Tony and move on from February’s debacle.”

Price hopes five weeks training with former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis in Canada and Liverpool will help him win the 12-round non-title rematch.

But southpaw Thompson, 41, said: “I have lost three times – twice against Wladimir Klitschko and I think people forget that. That angers me.

“Who has beaten Wladimir in 10 years? Nobody. Who has tested Wladimir the most in 10 years? Me.

“David is a young lion, but I am a hyena who chases you down and causes a lot of damage.

“David lacks knowledge and that can’t have changed much in four months.”

Well Price lost, so he can go have a piss lol. Fury won't be long behind him getting knocked out soon, that irish bum. I would sell the clothes off my back to see Fury laid out cold.

These idiots like Price and Fury set themselves up for failure. They go around pretending to be the heir apparents to the klitschkos and then one loss upsets their apple cart and breaks their version of reality. Less hype, the Bettr. Take everyone by surprise instead of trying to meet unrealis...

Think this will be a boring fight and Price using his jab to keep him away for the first six rounds. Think Price might try to take this 12 rounds
