Promoter Frank Maloney has hit out at claims that Tony Thompson has not agreed to face David Price in a rematch.
Maloney insists that the American two time world title challenger has signed for the 12 rounder.
The pair will meet again at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday 6th July with the fight being televised live on BoxNation.
Thompson will even fly into Britain for press conferences and TV appearances during the first week of May.
Maloney said: “Everything Tony Thompson asked for he got and he has signed the contract for the rematch despite what people want to say.
“Why is it that people spread nonsense about fights not happening? They must have nothing better to do with their lives.”
Thompson, 41, beat Price inside two rounds when they clashed back in February and believes he will prove that win was no fluke.
