American heavyweight Tony Thompson stopped David Price in the fifth round at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday day but he had to get off the floor to do it. Price, who was stopped inside two rounds back in February, dropped Thompson in round two, but the former two time world title challenger recovered take out Price in round after 1:55 of round five.
It was a bitterly disappointing night for the local heavyweight and promoter Frank Maloney admitted that the only option now for Price is to rebuild at domestic level.
“ We’ve dropped out of the premier league and we to drop down to domestic and European level,” Maloney told Boxnation. “We are all in shock and we will have to sit down and talk about what to do next. If David wants to go on , I’ll stay loyal. If he doesn’t ,I may call it a day.”
