Promoter Frank Maloney is prepared to apologise to Tyson Fury for the remarks he made about him if it means a getting him and his fighter David Price in the ring together.
The insults between the two camps have been flying thick and fast for the past year as both unbeaten heavyweight prospects build their respective careers in the hope of eventually fighting for the world heavyweight title.
An all British heavyweight clash between Price and Fury seems like the logical move and Maloney is prepared to make peace with Fury and his promoter Mick Hennessy if it means the two boxers sharing the ring in 2013
Maloney told the Sky Sports Toe2Toe podcast: "Will the fight happen? It should do for the public. We’re willing to sit down and negotiate. If Mick Hennessy wants me to apologise for my remarks about Tyson Fury and that’ll help make the fight, then I apologise."
Maloney added: "If you don’t want to fight, be honest. Dealing with Mick Hennessy is like a reincarnation of Rock Newman and Riddick Bowe. They don’t want the fight and I don’t blame them because they’d get beaten and they wouldn’t get the chance to fight for a world title.
"Maybe David will let him fight for his world title once he becomes champion.
Maloney also announced that Price will step up in class on February 2 when he faces former world title challenger Tony Thompson at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
