Tyson Fury's Team Send Offers To Perez, David Price

By Phil D. Jay

After the collapse of a potential Irish heavyweight title battle with Martin Rogan, British and Commonwealth belt holder Tyson Fury has offered Prizefighter – The Internationals champion Mike Perez the opportunity to face him in at the Kings Hall in Belfast on September 17th.

According to BoxRec News, trainer and uncle Hughie Fury has revealed an offer has been sent to Perez and his team for what would be an interesting contest between two unbeaten fighters next month.

“An offer has been made to Perez’s team and we’re waiting to hear back from them now,” stated Hughie.

“Perez is a good fighter, a southpaw, and is well known in Ireland so hopefully we’ll be able to get the fight on.

"Tyson sparred with Perez just prior to him turning pro – he held his own in the first session and in my opinion he dominated the second session."

Another undefeated heavyweight David Price, who faces John McDermott in a title eliminator on November 5th in Liverpool has also been offered the chance to skip the eliminator fight Fury in just over four weeks’ time.

”We also submitted an offer to David Price and are waiting to hear back. We’d like to get Price into the ring now while the fight means something as there is a real possibility that Price could come unstuck against John McDermott (Price and McDermott meet in a British title eliminator on 5 November),” added Hughie.

Other fighters mentioned are Ireland’s Coleman Barrett, who reached the final of UK Prizefighter only to be knocked out by Audley Harrison in his only loss and Canada-based Bosnian Neven Pajkic, who boasts a record of 16-0, but went ten rounds with Raphael Butler, whom David Price knocked out in under two minutes.
