Price v Thompson – Liverpool Echo Arena

boxingposterBritish and commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price is a man who has ripped through the domestic scene with consumate ease and certainly fits the bill when it comes to a big man. His latest challenge is the veteran campaigner Tony Thompson.

For many, myself included, Price’s string of impressive performances will be enough evidence to suggest that the real decision is which round Price can finish off his next opponent in en route to bigger and better things. The Price pursuit of a World title shot is building momentum like a train, one which is not scheduled to stop at Thompson’s hands. He’s in his own backyard and is fully expected to execute. American Thompson has had two bites of the cherry against Wladimir Klitschko failing both times; he’s very much had his time.

However the level headed scouser will be the first to tell people he’s not looking passed his next fight, believing that ‘the tiger’ represents a step up in class. It’s quite possible that this grounded attitude is one of the reasons so many feel confident in his ability to deliver another victory.
