Warren: Price won’t be facing winner of Chisora-Fury
Liverpool’s David Price will not be in the running to fight the winner out of premier heavyweights Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury said promoter Frank Warren.
Price’s promoter Kalle Sauerland had said that it was ‘inevitable’ that Price would face the winner of Chisora and Fury, but Warren has said that won’t happen.
Bitter rivals Chisora and Fury clash in the biggest domestic heavyweight showdown in recent years at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester on Saturday 26th July, with the winner securing the WBO number one spot to challenge reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko.
And once Klitschko has made his mandatory IBF title defence against Kubrat Pulev on September 6 in Germany, he’ll have to face either Chisora or Fury to defend his WBO title.
“Chisora and Fury are both well past Price at this point,” Said Warren.
“This is a real fight between Chisora, the European Champion, against Fury, the undefeated challenger, and the man who comes out on top gets the number one position for the right to fight Klitschko for the WBO world title, Price doesn’t even come into the equation,”
“For a start Price is nowhere near ready to fight either of these two, let alone Klitschko, after looking at his recent performances. He was floored by Ondrej Pala in the opening round, who Chisora stopped in three rounds, and he looked average in his last fight against Yaroslav Zavorotnyi,”
Warren also added that Price had been previously offered a fight against Chisora after his first loss to Tony Thompson, when Chisora was making his comeback after his loss to David Haye, but declined it.
“I offered Price a fight against Chisora after he’d lost to Thompson the first time, Chisora was going to have his first fight after Haye, it would have been a great fight for Price to get straight back into the world scene, but he opted to take on Thompson a second time and look what happened.”
