fury564534After watching heavyweight David Price (15-2, 13 KO’s) gas out and get stopped in the 5th round last Saturday night by Tony Thompson (38-3, 26 KO’s), undefeated Tyson Fury thinks his cousin 18-year-old Hughie Fury (6-0, 4 KO’s) has the skills and the power to defeat Price if he’s open to fighting the 6’6’ Hughie in September.

Twice for Price: The sequel at the Echo Arena

By Andrew Picken: Boxing don’t you just love it. Last night another drama worthy of any Eastenders or Coronation Street Script unfolded with the unthinkable happening … Price stopped again. Inevitably the criticisms will start rolling in thick and fast, I have my opinion but let’s be honest hindsight is a wonderful skill.
