watch David Price v Tony Thompson 2 Live Boxing stream " Rematch Saturday 06 July 2013 .Boxing is an unpredictable sport where one punch can change history. That is no truer than in the heavyweight division and when you deal with super heavyweights, anything can happen at any time. Rising star, David Price, 15-1, 13 KO’s, was on the fast track to superstardom, demolishing veterans Audley Harrison (KO-1) and Matt Skelton (KO-2) and decided to move up the level of competition by taking on Tony Thompson, 37-3, 25 KO’s.
For Price, Thompson seemed like the easy mark. The two notable defeats on the record of Thompson were to Wladimir Klitschko. What was most notable was the second defeat to Wlad, where Thompson seemed to have had his spirit broken before the fight. He was easily destroyed. Price, being similar to Wlad in size and power, saw this as his chance to do the same thing to a respected contender and one that was probably well past his prime. Thompson at 41 seems too old to be a serious threat to a true challenger on the rise.
