American Tony Thompson has hit back at David Price’s compatriot Tyson Fury for what he called ‘disrespectful’ comments he made after his recent win over Price last month.
Fury takes on former IBF cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham in New York on April 20 and if Fury comes through victorious Thompson is happy to face Fury next
“With the big man comes a big mouth, and if Steve Cunningham doesn’t school him I am happy to be responsible for tipping the British heavyweight scene on its head,” said Thompson.
"He flaps his mouth off being disrespectful to everyone yet he didn’t have the balls to face his fellow countryman in the undefeated David Price who I managed to stop in two rounds.
"And if I get in the ring with him will serve him the same punishment. He corries on like he is already champion of the world when let’s face it – who has he faced? He couldn’t put Chisora away nor the Kingpin (Kevin Johnson).
Thompson added: "I hope your promoter has as big a wallet as you have mouth – put your money on the table and let your money talk instead of your mouth.
"You use my name to promote yourself saying you will KO me but I haven’t heard from your promoter? Talk is cheap - which somehow kind of fits with your type. I have a sneaking suspicion (Steve) Cunningham is going to box your ears off and expose you for the fraud you are, but if you do make it through, give me a call."
