Price: My Career Will Not Be Defined By Fury's Path

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID PRICE insists he is not bothered about his rival Tyson Fury closing in on a world heavyweight title shot as he deals with domestic business.

Liverpool’s British heavyweight champion defends his title against Matt Skelton, 45, on Friday after an 82-second defeat of another forty-something, Audley Harrison, last month.

Unbeaten Price, 29, was left frustrated earlier this year when Fury gave up the domestic belt rather than fight him.

But Price said: “I refuse to let my career be defined by what Tyson Fury is doing. I just need to concentrate on what I’m doing and hopefully we’ll meet each other down the line.

“But it’s not a race to get there first because we’re destined to meet each other anyway, so it doesn’t matter who gets there first.”

Price insists Skelton is the right opponent for him as he bids for a world title shot in late 2013.

He added: “People will get to see a lot more of me against Matt Skelton simply because he’s a tough, durable opponent and I don’t think he’s going to just fall over when I hit.”
