English heavyweight David Price is linking up with Adam Booth, long-time trainer of David Haye, as he attempts to rebuild his career following back-to-back defeats to veteran American Tony Thompson. “It’s a fresh start,” said the 30-year-old 2008 Olympic bronze medallist.
Heavyweight Tony Thompson has won seven of his past eight fights by knockout heading into Saturday’s clash with Kubrat Pulev.
“I’m definitely looking forward to being the next heavyweight champion of the world,” said undefeated prospect Deontay Wilder, who will face ex-beltholder Sergei Liakhovich on Aug. 9 at The Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio, Calif.
The co-manager of Robert Guerrero has expressed extreme confidence heading into Saturday night’s clash with pound-for-pound kind Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Deontay Wilder is 27-0 with 27 knockouts: “I’m trying to delete all of the American heavyweights. I’m trying to get rid of all of them so that I can become just that main one.”
Tyson Fury, who makes his U.S. debut against Steve Cunningham on NBC on April 20, has a personality as big as his 6-foot-9 body, and he’s never at a loss for brash words. “As Jesus Christ is my savior, I am the savior of the heavyweight divison,” he says.
