Thompson: I Need This Win More Than David Price!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight contender Tony Thompson (37-3, 25KOs), age 41, says he is the hungrier fighter when he faces David Price (15-1, 13KOs) in a rematch on July 6th at Echo Arena in Liverpool. On February 23rd, Thompson caused a whirlwind in the heavyweight division when he stopped Price in two rounds.

“I’m pretty desperate and desperate peope do desperate things and I’m going to go out there  and show that. My whole career has been a make or break fight. I hear David talk about being in a  make-or-break fight and who needs it more," Thompson told the Liverpool Echo.

“I honestly feel like I need the fight more. That’s just how I feel. Yes David lost, but despite what I look like he didn’t lose to a guy with a losing record. He lost to somebody legitimate and he could use that loss, turn things around and stil go on  and do great things in boxing."

Thompson already beat him looking fat and sloppy. If he trains a little more for this one it should be easy work.
