Price Never Received Offer To Face Fury


Promoter Frank Maloney insists that NO offer was made for David Price to challenge British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

The promoter was amazed to read Fury’s comment that Price’s camp had turned down an offer to face him in Belfast this weekend.

Maloney said: “I never received any offer in writing or verbally from Tyson’s promoter for David to face him on Saturday night.

“I saw Tyson quoted saying David had said ‘no’ to the Belfast fight, but that is rubbish. Nobody has been in touch.

“I can only imagine that Tyson’s promoter was dreaming he made the offer and got a little confused.”

Olympic bronze medallist Price (11-0) who defeated Fury when they were amateurs is still on a collision course to face him early next year.


The scouser boxes John McDermott (26-7) in a final eliminator for Fury’s British crown at Liverpool Olympia on Saturday November 19 which will be televised live on Sky Sports.

Maloney added: “In fairness I would have turned the offer down if it did exist unless it was a staggering amount.

“If David comes through Big John I want to promote the fight against Fury myself as it will become a level playing field and go to purse bids.

“I know what it is worth and if David is still unbeaten after November 19 I will be bidding big to stage it in Liverpool.”

The full undercard for the Liverpool card on November 19 will be announced over the next two weeks, but tickets are now on sale.

They will be available priced at £35 and £75 (Ringside) from www.frankmaloney.com and 0871 226 1508
