David Price Wants An Anthony Joshua Fight

Not so long ago, it was between David Price and Tyson Fury as to who the next big British heavyweight was going to be, with the two men looking to be on an eventual collision course to decide. Anthony Joshua had barely turned professional.

And then along came wily old veteran Tony Thompson and the wheels came off for David Price. After those two career-derailing knockouts that left Price on the heavyweight scrap heap, Tyson Fury went his own way and is now set to challenge Wladimir Klitschko for the WBO title later this year.

Anthony Joshua Will Dominate Says Klitschko

It would seem that the world and his wife has an opinion on British knockout artist and heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua and just what his next move should be – with the Watford fighter seemingly re-igniting interest in the marquee division both at home and beyond – with the natural gifts of the 6ft 6″ Olympic gold medalist drawing attention from all corners of the fight game.

Luke Campbell v Tommy Coyle: All Set For August 1st

It’s already being billed as a huge domestic clash that will serve as an official eliminator for WBC champion Jorge Linares’ 135 lb title – and after leaking online earlier in the week, promoter Eddie Hearn this morning dropped the news that London 2012 gold medalist Luke Campbell and hometown rival Tommy Coyle, will indeed headline Matchroom’s “Rumble On The Humber” card from Hull’s Craven Park – with ample support coming in the form of Scotland’s Ricky Burns – (who put in a heroic shift vs Omar Figueroa Jr in Texas recently, when he fights a TBA opponent.)

The 27 year old for England rep has quietly cruised to ten straight wins and is targeting domestic glory before the year is through. On Monday, boxing writer Glynn Evans caught up with him to discuss his career. Continue reading

Paul Smith On Andre Ward: I Can’t Let Him Be His Best

Liverpool’s super middleweight contender and former world title challenger Paul Smith goes into the lion’s den on June 20th when he travels to California and attempts to upset the returning Andre Ward in a fight many are viewing as an uphill struggle for the Brit – who is coming off back-to-back losses against Germany’s Arthur Abraham.

Speaking to fighthype.com, Smith was honest in his appraisal of his chances in the fight and clearly recognises he is a big underdog. However, he believes he can upset the odds if he boxes a smart fight – and is buoyed by the American’s inactivity – Ward last stepped through the ropes back in November of 2013. Continue reading
