Tyson Fury Eyes David Price and Deontay Wilder Bouts

By Chris LaBate

To prepare himself for a possible title shot in 2012, British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (15-0, 10 KOs) wants to test himself. According to recent reports, the undefeated British boxer is looking beyond his likely fall opponent, Martin Rogan, and wants to face some of the other rising prospects, like Deontay Wilder (17-0, 17 KOs) and David Price (11-0, 9 KOs).

Fury is coming off the biggest win of his career; a dominating decision over domestic rival Dereck Chisora to capture his two titles. Chisora was being lined up for a fight with WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO champion Wladimir Klitschko but fell short very short in the fight. Fury, on the other hand, wants to have a few more fights before taking on an opponent like Klitschko.

Wilder isn't going to be stepping up in class anytime soon...If they fought in the near future Wilder would lose. Dude just has too many things to work on. He's got crap foot work and he's still developing his jab,…
