Tyson Fury Rips David Price, Says Audley Has No Guts

 Tyson Fury: Don’t buy Price hype, he was KO’d and Audley is washed up!
By Phil D. Jay

The recently announced British and Commonwealth title bout between current holder David Price and Olympic gold medal winner Audley Harrison has not gone unnoticed by unbeaten rival Tyson Fury.

The 24 year-old, who has long been linked to a fight with Price, believes that the Liverpudlian has chosen an easy option in signing to fight the former European champion, who at 40, Fury believes has seen better days.

“Audleys an old man and washed up, even at his prime had no guts!” Fury told World Boxing News.

“Price has been ‘managed’ so well, his team should be called Mothercare!”

Fury is lining up some of the top names in the division for his next outing, including the likes of David Haye and Tomasz Adamek and believes that Price has been built up too much following some unimpressive losses in the unpaid ranks.

“The British fans need to know that Price will be the first heavyweight to be great coming off a knockout defeat in the amateurs.

“There isn’t anyone else, it’s definitely a first. He was not a young kid either, he was three-time ABA champion and in his late twenties.

“Price has never been remotely tested as a pro so don't buy the hype.”

Price, 29, has stopped eleven of his thirteen opponents so far and meets Harrison in his home city on October 13. The 6ft 8ins fighter believes he is seven fights away from fighting for a world title and both boxers seem content to avoid each other until either of them has a world belt in their possession.

Imagine a young cruiserweight beating old middleweights and calling himself the best. That's Fury, except he is a heavyweight with a size advantage over his smaller, aging opponents. Price isn't skilled either, but he's a class above Fury. Fury won't…

Although I hate to say It Fury got a point. Everytime Price fights, I feel he's one nice punch away from getting KO'd. Its just the way he fights I dont know, maybe because Ive seen him wobbled In the…
