TYSON FURY has KO’d any thoughts of a summer clash with David Price by setting his sights on a world title shot.

A proposed showdown between Britain’s top two heavyweights was due to go to purse bids this week but Tyson’s camp have now decided against it.

Fury’s uncle and trainer, Peter Fury, said: “We’re ­going in a completely different direction to Price.

“David Price is not on our radar. Tyson is high up in the world rankings and I don’t think Price has earned his shot at him.

“We are going for mandatory No.1 position and hopefully a world title shot by the end of the year.”

WBC world champion Vitali Klitschko is ­rumoured to be ready to relinquish his belt and retire, leaving an opening that Fury wants to make the most of.

“We’ll just have to wait and see what happens over Vitali,” said Peter. “But we hope that Tyson can have his world title fight this year.”

Americans Chris ­Arreola and Bermane Stiverne, ranked one and two, meet in a final eliminator for a tilt at the WBC belt next month.

Fury, unbeaten in his 20 professional contests, will make his American debut when he meets ­Steve Cunningham at Madison Square Gardens on April 20.

If he comes through that, and Klitschko calls it a day, he could move in for a shot at the Arreola-Bermane winner.

Right now his thoughts are on Cunningham in a fight likely to be screened live on Channel 5.

His trainer said: “Tyson wants to conquer the States. We know that is a place where he can do very good things – and to have Cunningham first is brilliant.”

Fury is ranked fourth with the WBC, sixth with the WBO and the IBF place him at number nine. Peter added: “Tyson can do it, too. He gives his heart and soul in every fight.

“He has got the willpower and determination to succeed and that is an immense quality.”

The clash with Cunningham is expected to be officially confirmed this week, with Fury ­already in the fifth week of his training camp.

Cunningham, 36, has moved up to heavyweight after losing his IBF cruiser­weight title and has been defeated in three of his last four fights.

I honestly don't believe Fury is ducking price. Fury is a traveller and, let's be honest, fighting is what they do. I think Fury has been calling him out because he does, genuinely, dislike him and does want to fight him. I think it is more to do with his team/Hennessey who see, potentially, how ...

This fight will happen; but only when one of them has a world title. We could be waiting a while...

It's so clear that Fury wants no part of Price. Atleast at the moment.

This is all getting boring. If Fury doesn't fight Price, who is he going to fight. I can only think of a Wlad fight in the summer but I doubt it takes place. Or maybe Povetkin? I odubt that too. I think Fury's team are waiting for Vitali to retire so they can fight for a vacant title.

[QUOTE=WladimirK]Well it's business. Calling out a fighter doesn't mean the fight will happen. Spewing puke is normal. Look at this forum. It's fine to say 'duck', it doesn't mean he wouldn't want to fight Price, but at this stage in his career, perhaps it's not the right move.[/QUOTE] Yes it ...
