i think thompson could win this again. thompson was landing in the first wlad bout and engaging. that wlad was about 10 x better then this price. thompsons awkward. people were selling his boxing skills short coming into the first price bout forgetting that the only guy to beat thompson was the great wlad klitschKO. obviously, at this time in the heavyweight division thompson is the best southpaw. he’s gonna land on price again. if price is damaged goods or if price didnt have the chin people thought cause it never got tested much its the gonna be the same results. i dont know where i would put my money at this juncture. i would have to watch the tape some more

rod-you talk up price and smack talk the goat vitaly klitschKO. how about go rod. stay away from EASTSIDE threads. you dont know your A55 from a hole in the ground. im tired of reading your senseless smack talk on the great fighters with the best accolades and stats followed by your praise of a fighter with a ko loss. makes no sense

Thompson finishes price off, then wastes the other glass jawed hype job, fury.

Tony should show up in shape for this one. We will see if Price really has a glass head in this rematch.

Yeah, I wonder what odds you can get on a Price win? Im going for Price to win the return.

I think Price wins this fight. The fact that Thompson has immediately agreed the rematcj suggests that he doesn’t see his career really going anywhere from this point, and is happy to get a half decent deal on the second fight. I mean if Thompson did see himself having a third run why on earth fight a guy who you just beat in 2 to put you back in the rankings? Thompson’s making as much spare bank as he can before he retires. Decent paydays against Price or Fury suit him just fine. I don’t see him winning again. He always used to come into fights in great shape, and was surprisingly out of condition last time around. His mad celebration at the end also strongly suggested he was shocked at his own feat. I see Price by 7-10 TKO through accumulation. Fury’s on a much better journey right now.

Price his problem is that he wasted valuable time by not fighting regularly and fighting not so good opposition when he was 25-29. Now time is no longer on his side hence I can agree he wants to rematch now. And as a fan, is this not the fight we want to see?

Great post Tark, true in life as well as boxing.

Posted March 29, 2013 3:06 am 


Price might gets respect for his heart here and so does TT for givin him the shot!

I like that Price is getting right back on the horse. It’s a risky move though. If he loses to Thompson twice put a fork in his status as an up and comer. Win and he can write it off though. It shows he wants to advance to a title shot ASAP.

horst fraze

this could be price’s last fight of any significance. hope he gives thompson an opportunity if it goes the other way this time. thompson is obviously more skilled.

There are a lot of complements on Thompson’s fistic ability on this article and the one below. Just goes to show that Wlad is an all time great.

Posted March 28, 2013 6:28 pm 


Lookin forward to this! Heavyweight boxing is reeeeeeaaaaalllllllly heating up!!!!

Posted March 28, 2013 5:49 pm 


Risky fight – well done Dave for taking it without a “warm up”… tricky one!

“Promoter Frank Maloney collapsed in the wake of the defeat….” – What did he keel over with a heart attack?

The world needs big punching heavies like David Price, and good for him for trying to redeem himself, but it was troubling to see him taken out with one shot from Thompson. Thompson is a big, strong man, but not a one punch knockout artist. He hit Dominic Gwinn a hundred times a round for ten rounds and never put him over. If the punch resistance is suspect, then Price’s defense needs to be top notch. I don’t know that he is there yet and the top ten contenders may be too much of a reach for now. Six months of tuneups first.

I fear he will be KO’d again maybe not this fight but soon, say what you want about the ear shot it was a weak shot and he crumbled like a condemned tenement block at the first swing of the hammer, he left his head out in the open and invited Thomson to crack it,and crack it he did.

Posted March 28, 2013 2:15 pm 


True. Price is no spring-chicken.

Posted March 28, 2013 1:46 pm 


Tark I agree but in Price’s case father time is not on his side he’s nearly 30, he needs to wipe the slate clean and beat this old man asap if he wants to be a serious force in the pro ranks.

*best of luck to the big’un.

Posted March 28, 2013 12:28 pm 


Yeah Neil to truly redeem himself its about the best thing he could have done, big risk isn’t it, if it happens again he’s done for.

Posted March 28, 2013 12:25 pm 


Well done Price for wanting it and well done Thompson for accepting it. It shows a fighting-heart to get right back in there with the man who destroyed your unbeaten record. Wladimir should of done the same after the Purity and Sanders defeats.

Posted March 28, 2013 12:20 pm 


The risk is there certainly (of a repeat loss for Price) but he needs redemption here. Thompson’s skills are to be respected and if he stopped Price once (with a single punch that didnt look to have anything behind it) then it can happen again. Prices punch-resiliance is obviously a weakness …. but i believe he can learn from the loss and avenge the defeat.

Wow, big propers to the big man for taking the courageous path. Hope he doesn’t regret it. Very happy for Thompson on this!

Thompson is a very tricky, slippery, and very difficult southpaw to nail… You notice that Eddie Chambers killed their fight instead of merely postponing it… Seriously…TT is no Audley… @David Price, I suggest you study the Wladimir Klitschko-Tony Thompson fights intensively because Wladimir never rushed in at any time. His studious patience, especially in the 1st fight when Tony was more dangerous, paid off in 2 KO’s—the only KO’s TT ever suffered.

You might think, “What are the odds I’ll get clipped behind the ear again?” The odds are better than you think—especially since Thompson is a very tall, very heavy southpaw with KO power in his right hook—and he already KNOWS that his behind the ear shot will turn your legs to jelly. That’s extremely valuable information to have. Let’s face it—that right hook didn’t land with devastating impact.

Every time TT watches that replay his chuckles get louder and louder and his smile gets bigger and wider. If he can duplicate that feat he’ll be on cloud 99—and his victory antics and post-fight gloating will get even more insufferable. Can you imagine? This is not something to relish. This is a tough and dangerous job you just need to get done.

Good man David, that’s how you should do it. No ‘warm-up’ fan-fleecing fights against nobodies, no calling him out in the press while you fight other people, shut your mouth and sign the rematch. Take note Amir Khan

Posted March 28, 2013 10:07 am 


Thompson’s really not bad for an old guy though.

Posted March 28, 2013 10:03 am 


That is the best move Price could do.

Posted March 28, 2013 10:02 am 


it’s a good test for price to see what’s what.

Posted March 28, 2013 9:49 am 



Would this fight really sell as many tickets in America?

Posted March 28, 2013 9:39 am 


Price should relish the opportunity because if he cannot comeback and take care of old, fat Thompson he needs another line of work…

Posted March 28, 2013 9:27 am 


Might at least have done Thompson the courtesy of travelling to the US to fight him this time…

Posted March 28, 2013 9:19 am 


Onion perfect comment. He still fights like an amature and comes in too straight. This can change and will. The defeat was the best thing for price. He was looking invincible now he has to improve every aspect of his game. It will make him a better boxer. The final test will be facing and defeating Thompson then moving on to bigger and better things.

Posted March 28, 2013 8:17 am 


Interesting approach from Price. He has the size and power to beat most boxers but the manner of his defeat against Thompson suggests there is a lot of changes Price needs to be made technically. Firstly Price comes foward in straight lines and his footwork needs improving. Price got tagged because he couldn’t move his big fram quickly enough out of danger & didn’t keep hos gloves up. Improving footwork can take time – fighting someone as experienced as Thompson without making changes could lead to the same result. At the same tim it is a winnable fight but I can’t help feeling that he needs to drop a level for a couple of fighs to make the adjustments.

baby huey will not make it to the 3rd round
