Team Fury: David Price is Two Years Behind Tyson!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Don't hold your breath for a fight between unbeaten British heavyweights David Price and Tyson Fury, at least in the near future. Fury plans to return on December 1 and then he has big plans for 2013, with Price not exactly being in that mix.

Peter Fury, the uncle and trainer of Tyson, doesn't see any reason, in the immediate future, to fight Price. He says Price is not highly ranked and has yet to face top level competition. Team Fury is focused on putting Tysin in line for a fight with WBC champion Vitali Klitschko. Tyson is ranked in the fourth position.

Coach Peter told the Belfast Telegraph - “2013 is going to a very big year for Tyson. We want this fight at the Odyssey to be against a top opponent so that he will be moving very close to the mandatory position for a shot at Vitali."

“David Price is two years behind Tyson in terms of his ranking and the opponents he has fought,” he argued. He hasn’t fought a live opponent yet, they’ve been dug up from the graveyard.

“That’s no disrespect to Price because he can only box the guys they put in front of him but if Tyson was to box him then it would be a step backwards at this point but I’m sure that eventually the public will demand it and the money will be put in place to make it happen. For now Tyson has to just focus on December 1.”

2 years ago Fury was getting put on his ass by a D level fighter with a 20% KO ratio.
