David Price eyeing redemption against Tony Thompson


Recommended Posts

Liverpool heavyweight David Price is out for revenge over Tony Thompson after admitting his defeat to the American earlier this year gave him sleepless nights and dented his confidence.

Price suffered his first loss in 16 professional bouts after being floored by a right hook to the side of the head from the 41-year-old in the second round of their February fight.

He immediately asked for a re-match and the pair will meet again at the same venue, Liverpool’s ECHO Arena, on July 6 – Price’s 30th birthday.

But it will be a different Price who enters the ring on that night.

“It did shake me up and I was gutted. I put a brave face on and tried my best not to feel sorry for myself,†he said.

“It is human nature: if you have a setback it is going to affect your confidence but it is how you overcome it.

“I didn’t shed a tear but I was trying to keep myself busy and my mind occupied, doing anything I could to not think about it. But when I went to bed at night I was just laying there thinking about it non-stop.

“I still think about it now but nowhere near as much because I can’t look back.

“This fight is going to define my career in terms of how I come back from such a devastating defeat.

“When I win this re-match it will make people sit up and take notice over how I’ve responded in adversity and that is going to prove I am going on to become a great heavyweight.

“Without bad times you wouldn’t know good times – it was a bad time but it will make victory on July 6 the best feeling ever. I do believe I am going to redeem myself.â€

Yep, David wins this time, no doubt! He just got caught at the worst spot while on the wrong leg. He was in process of busting up Thompson before that.

yeah, i believe Price will win this time round, he'l probably have a few ups and downs in his career with his chin though, unless he follows Wlad and fights a safety first strategy

he's been dropped a few times in the amatuers mate, as much as Mofo would like to think his chin is fine. it really, really is suspect to fuck and back

Price needs to have his head on this, he seriously fucked up in the first fight and there is No room for another defeat!

he knows he's chinny, he'l have been working on that with Lennox and his defence will be way better this time round mate, he may well still get caught with something though

chinny is a term for low punch resistance Mofo, as you well know. Now watch some footage of Price in the ams, he gets rocked a lot by clubbing shots that dont land on the chin, which in fact is worse, because he is getting rocked even though they are not landing on the chin. that to me says his punch resistance is not that good. add that he fights at hw with the most powerful guys in the world and thats a major fucking flaw, Chinny as fuck Pricey ;)

Being put over when struck on a pressure point most definitely ain't evidence to prove Price is Chinny :wave

chinny is probably the easiest throw away line to use over a fighter, I tend to look at things a little more logically and being in the hit and hurt business these guys are going to get caught and landed on but that doesn't necessarily mean a fighter has no punch resistance!

your manloves (Price and Khan) are easy to drop, thats a fact. Think the big difference between the two is Price isn't a big headed little dickhead who thinks he's a superstar, and will have, and show more willingness to take on what other people have to say and work on strategies to cover his flaws. Khan will always be a twat
