Price: My Career is Not About Tyson Fury, Off My Radar

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight David Price (12-0, 10KOs) is no longer thinking about his domestic rival, Tyson Fury (17-0, 12KOs). Fury was mandated to defend his British title against Price, but he vacated the title and instead finalized a deal to fight Martin Rogan on April 14th. Price will face Sam Sexton for the vacant title on May 19th.

Even with Fury's decision to take another direction, the discussions for Price-Fury, at least among the fans and writers, continues. On the other hand, Price doesn't have any thought or interest with a Fury fight.

“My career is not about Tyson Fury,” Price told the Liverpool Echo. “I know I’m big enough and clever enough to forge my own career without having him involved. He’s off the radar.”

Fury's stay at world level will last one fight - he'll eventually take the Klitschko shot, get KOed and return to going life and death with domestic level boxers. Maybe he'll talk his way into a shot at whatever belt…

I remember when fury was calling out price. Now hes realised hed get his fat arse iced and is deciding to fight part time taxi drivers near pension collecting age.

fury is too close to a title shot to risk fighting price right now. you could see that from a mile away. fury's camp offered price 100000 pounds to fight but price declined. these 2 will eventually fight but it…

Good for Price. No sense wasting time at his age and with a guy that clearly doesn't want to risk any possible big fights for the future.
