Tony Thompson has only lost to Wlad (twice) in the past decade. I’m not sure Price has what it takes to beat him, even if he’s better prepared. Guess we’ll find out if Price can make the adjustments. Just not sold on Price, or Fury for that matter. Look elsewhere for the next HW champ, IMHO…

Don’t listen to me, I’m just a Brit-tard. But David Price will beat Thompson, the Klitschkos and the become the next HW Champion of the World.

Price will dominate the HW division for years, just like Lewis did. Mark my words!

He wasn’t supposed to lose to him? Ok…so they just ASSUMED that Price with his lack of experience would do what only Klitschko has done in the past few years and beat Thompson? They underestimate Thompson, he is a good fighter….

Thompson will Beat this guy again!

Why is Price taking this fight again? It’s because a certain someone pushed him to fight Thompson right away and was upset with the KO in there first match.
oh I wonder who that was?

BRUCE, and you’re completely brainless, that’s even worse.

Price is fighting Thompson again because if he needs to. Since Wlad mauled him twice, people tend to forget that Thompson is a pretty decente HW. But if you lose so badly (a semi serious power shot on the 2nd round IS bad) to the guy who already lost twice to the champ, specially when you are one of the top prospects, you either go for a rematch or lose too much credibility. Unless Thompson is totally uninspired, he will pul that same trick again, justa little later this time.

Win or lose Price will have to fight the winner of Richard Towers/Lucas Browne.

Dont think a lot of the posters here have even watched the last fight. Thompson was being totally out boxed and appeared to be on his way to getting stopped when Price tried to show off and paid with the chicken dance

Obviously a young writer who doesn’t remember how Lennox Lewis went a-wobbly after being knocked down by Oliver McCall, or how David Haye went for a dance against the old man of the Cruiserweights, Carl Thompson. You cannot rate a boxer’s level by one fight, otherwise Lewis and Wladimir Klitchko would have never gone on to such massive achievement with those calculations….

Agree with Rod!

louisrocco. I am a southpaw. Southpaws always have this problem. The lead foot of the othodox fighter and southpaw are right next to each other and toes get stepped on. Regarding Price. He made mistakes the first time round. He tried to rush it, he just let the jab hang out there and had his hands down when he was throwing combos. Price will take his time this time, have a stiff punishing jab and only thrown power and combos when Tony is off balance. He will also have his hands up. Tony will be KOed. in 5- 8 rounds. The author compares price to Dimitrenko. Price is faster and much more powerful than Dimitrenko and has a better jab. He is just still a bit inexperienced but will redeem himself and learn from his 1st defeat just like Wlad and Lennox did. After he wins expect Tyson Fury to duck him again.

im telling u again. watch the fight again u will see thompson trying over n over to step on price’s front foot. when he got close enough he stepped on his foot n then spun around him and landed the knockout punch. it could of been unintentional but this is boxing n its about getting the WIN… anyway u can

Chin questions will follow Price wherever he goes and whatever he does now.What I want to see in this fight from him is smarts, show he can learn from the defeat, show that Lennox taught him some tricks, show you can open up a canny operator.

DON`T throw an uppercut from 6 foot away unless you have a chin like Froch.

I pick Price to put this result right, I`m still on the Price bandwagon for what he brings offensively in that right hand.

Wlad is awesome, I love the guy, but I want to see him in fights he is at risk in, and a well drilled Price is a risk to anyone if he lands first.

Shorter heavies without the one punch power – even very good ones like Pulev, I just don`t see getting to Wlad. The longer the fight goes on the more Wlads skills advantage will take effect. They`ll put up a good fight but never really have a chance.
Wlad needs to be tricked into coming forward wrecklessly and countered with something monstrous – which I think was Hayes plan with all his blathering. Wlad would always be an overwhelming favourite vs Price, but I`d actually see some possibility of that fight going the other way.

The Truth

Price will win this rematch. He’ll box from the outside keeping any danger away. It won’t be fan friendly but he’ll jab his way to a win. He upped the tempo and got over confident in that 1st fight, 2nd round due to easily landing on Thompson. He should of learned from that experience. Although if his chin is as fragile as people say he really won’t go too far until it’s nighty night again.

Posted July 4, 2013 9:01 pm 


if you watch Thompson’s last fight with klitschko, he was CONSTANTLY stepping on Vladimir’s feet.

this is an old trick that old fighters have done for ages to slow down quicker fighters.

marquez even does it to pacquiao…

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

“coach, stop it with Fury already, the guy has no chin.”

Yet, Fury has NEVER once been stopped. That is not what you call “no chin” or a glass jaw.

U.S.S landed a perfect overhand right that would’ve knocked out many HWs. Fury smiled, got back up and shook it off like it was nothing. That’s what is known as a “flash knockdown” and they happen all the time. It doesn’t even mean the guy is truly hurt.

When Fury hit U.S.S. with that crushing uppercut/hook and floored him like a limp rag-doll… that was a truly Devastating KO!

horst fraze

hats off to price for putting it all on the line in this one, or could this be a slick promotional gimmick to stage a third bout?

Posted July 4, 2013 7:41 pm 


Tony thompsons a southpaw. There mightbe some steppin on feet. I don’t know who to take in this bout. I would lik to see price recover but I like thompson. He’s the current best heavy southpaw. Thompson can scrap. I wouldn’t put it past thompson winning again but I would like to see price recover from what’s happened. And for a complete recovery price needs a dominant job or a sweet stoppage win. And thompson has all the experience I don’t see price outboxing him. If price doesn’t stop thompson I see a close decison that should probably g hompsons way

Posted July 4, 2013 7:21 pm 


i never said he had a chin

Posted July 4, 2013 7:09 pm 


well i wasnt going to say this but i have to now n i hope david price himself reads this because i believe tony thompson knows what im about to say. it surprises me that no one spotted what im about to say. in their first fight its plain and simple. tony thompson was trying to step on prices feet to throw him off balance and hit him. look at their front feet the time of the knockdown tony stepped on prices front foot which probably threw him off balance for a slight second n thompson spun around him and hit him behind the ear. thats it . look at it there should of been a protest if they knew this. i know this game as good as anyone. i was audley harrisons sole trainer in the usa for his last prizefighter win. i taught him to get his balance better n it worked for him. in the deontay wilder fight he didn’t do what he was suppose to do n lets leave it at that. good luck david i hope this helps u. watch out for thompson trying to step on ur feet. i believe that is his plan again

And im sorry but my friend fury beats both

Thompson if he is up for it will win again

Hats off to price for rematching Thompson, he acknowledged his Prescott moment and went right back after him, Thompson has mileage but he is easily the states best hw, he is no gatekeeper

Posted July 4, 2013 5:41 pm 


you have to presume Price will be the fitter fighter, hungrier, and better prepared than last time.

the question is Thompson. is he hungry at all, or simply showing up for a payday?

how much does Thompson really want another shot at a klitschko?

If Thompson is at his best, he should win. most likely, he won’t be at his best– and might still win…

Posted July 4, 2013 5:08 pm 


why is david price rematching tony thompson? because he can’t find any other fighter’s over 40 years old. that’s his cut off point!

Posted July 4, 2013 4:14 pm 


Same result as last time
