Price Plans To Continue, Lewis Promises To Fix Stamina

David Price has vowed to continue fighting in the wake of Saturday's devastating second defeat to American Tony Thompson at the Echo Arena.

The Liverpudlian was hoping to avenge his first-ever loss in professional boxing at the weekend in a re-match with Thompson, but succumbed to a fifth-round stoppage.

It has already been suggested Price could consider hanging up his gloves following a second straight defeat, although he has been quick to deny he will be calling it quits.

Price will give himself time to digest the stoppage by Thompson, stating losing again to the American was not part of the script.

"I'm just trying to come to terms with what's just happened again," said Price.

"Really I'll have to just have a look back and see and look next week or whatever. I just need to come to terms with another defeat and another major disappointment."

Price spent three weeks training with Lennox Lewis ahead of Saturday's bout and the former heavyweight champion of the world believes increasing his stamina is the key to getting his career back on track.

"It was a very important fight for him so maybe it could be nervous energy, it could be low blood sugar. We need to investigate what exactly is the problem," said Lewis.

"To become a great fighter you have to have a good chin. You have to have stamina. You have to be able to box on the inside and the outside and you can't get cut.

"So we find that David's got a stamina problem, all we have to do is fix that."

Lennox is wasting his time with Price. Price doesn't have the skills.

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;13540288]Actually Wlad has stamina issues, it's one of the reasons why he throws so few punches (the other being he's very risk averse). Against Wach he looked really gassed at several moments in the fight.[/QUOTE] he threw alot of power…
