Two UK heavyweight giants have been waging a verbal war in the media. The more popular of the two, 6' 8 Tyson Fury (5-0), wants to avenge an amateur loss to the 6'8 David Price (1-0). Before Price even turned pro, he was bragging about the amateur win over Fury and vowed to beat him in the pros. Price beat Fury 22-8 in the amateur bout. Fury says that he was nothing more than a kid when the bout took place. He says Price should be ashamed of his performance in that fight.
 
"When I fought him I was a raw 17-year-old kid. He was 23 or something like that. I'd had 10 bouts and he'd had 70. He was a Commonwealth champion and had won all sorts while I was a novice. He was the only one who ended up on the floor and I was trying to catch him with big hooks while his style was totally suited to the amateurs ," Fury said to ITV.

"As somebody said to me after if I was a double ABA champion, a Commonwealth champion with 70 fights and I could only do that to a 10-fight novice I'd pack the game in! "
 
Fury wasn't impressed with Price's debut win against David Ingleby. He predicts that Price will be stopped inside the first round if the two of them ever got together in a pro ring.
 
"I was only a kid but I have come on so much since then. I'm a man now and he's definitely in my sights. I know if we fought now I'd smash his face in. Ingleby wobbled him in that one and Ingleby can't land a glove on me in the gym (they have sparred extensively). If we fought again Price wouldn't make it out of the first round. I'm too ferocious. He's just a big chinny thing from Liverpool," Fury said.

Tyson fury ''smashed'' his own face in. I mean how do you punch yourself, i mean that's something a beginner wouldn't even do.

There is a few things tyson fury has going for himself - he's huge, he's got a cool name, he hits pretty hard (from what ive seen) and he talks shit. Theres alot of people hating on him but so what? He wants the attention and for someone who has had 5 pro fights with not much amatuer backgrou...

I doubt i will be original, but IMO he is a real samurai... As the great warriors used to commit suicide throw hara-kiri for the sake of dignity, when it goes bad Fury will KO himself to avoid the disgrace and not to give his opponent the opportunity to have his skull as the trophy... P.S. ...

Punching own face = Loss of all credibility.
