By Scott Gilfoid: 45-year-old former two-time heavyweight world title challenger Tony Thompson (40-7, 27 KOs) is interested in facing #11 WBO contender David Price (21-3, 18 KOs) in a third fight. Thompson already twice knocked out Price three years ago in 2013, and he’s willing to come over to the UK and do it once more. Thompson says that Price, 33, cannot move on until he avenges those two defeats, and he’s willing to give him a chance of doing just that.
Price has turned his sagging career around recently with consecutive wins over 2nd tier fighters Ivica Perkovic and Vaclav Pejsar in 2016. Those wins for Price came after he was whipped in two rounds by Erkan Teper last year in July 2015.
It’s unclear what happened to the 6’8” Price in his loss to Teper, because he never seemed to get untracked in that fight. Before his loss to Teper, Price had won four straight fights, albeit against lower level journeyman like opponents.
