David Price Waiting on Tyson Fury

On Monday Scott brought you the story that David Price was/is (little confusion at the moment) coming to fight in America in March.

A new update has arisen, as Price is desperate to see if Heavyweight rival Tyson Fury will fight him. Price earned his shot at Fury last month when he destroyed John McDermott in the first round.

Fury and Price however may not face each other if Fury chooses to give up his British belt and defend his commonwealth belt instead. Frank Maloney, Price's promoter has made an offer to the Fury camp, and his hoping to hear back by the end of the week.

This is what Maloney had to say when speaking to Skysports:

"We have made a formal offer to Fury and they have until Thursday to agree terms. We want the fight as quick as possible - he's got to defend it by the end of May but we're looking at April. I want to keep him fighting, keep him working."

So at the moment the ball appears to firmly be in the Fury camp, if they wanna play ball and fight Price then it looks like it could be happening. Fury is a very proud fighter and I don't see him ducking Price, but he is the hottest property in the heavyweight division in Britain so as we all know he will have a hard fight. Going to America on a pretty poor untelevised bill does nothing for Price in my opinion, on the under-card of a big fight then yes. Staying at home and going to war with Fury would 1. Put fans in seats, and 2. Give the heavyweight division a real mouth watering clash to look forward to.

I see Price winning but at the moment it's pointless discussing predictions with the negotiations only starting this week, hopefully we will see Price and Fury get it on.
