Tyson Fury Vacates His Titles
British Heavyweight Tyson Fury has vacated both his British and Commonwealth titles rather then take on the fighter who everyone wants to see him face, David Price. Negotiations are said to have fallen through between the two camps, but many believe that Tyson Fury just doesn't want to fight David Price because he knows he would lose. It's a very high risk fight for Fury. David Price has beaten Tyson Fury once before in the Amateurs, so it's not without reason that people think Tyson is dodging this fight. Also, with some of the interviews Tyson Fury has done, when asked about David Price it does look as if Tyson's slightly rattled, coming out with many excuses why he shouldn't fight David Price. The truth of it is, boxing fans want to see this fight, and with both fighters having under 20 fights on their record this seems like the perfect time to have an all British Heavyweight match up.
Tyson Fury is claiming he's on the Klitschko's tail and fighting David Price makes no sense, but does anyone really believe that Fury, with 17 professional fights under his belt, and looking terrible in his last few fights, is anywhere near ready or good enough to fight and beat one of the Klitschko's.. I think even his most die-hard fans would say No Way!
David Price destroyed John McDermott in 1 round on his last outing, a fighter that Fury had way more trouble with, specially in their first meeting which ended in a controversial points win for Fury. Could this also be one of the reasons why Fury is steering clear of David Price.
David Price will now be fighting Sam Sexton for the two titles vacated by Tyson Fury.
