David Price Vs Tony Thompson – 23rd February Boxnation

Location – Echo Arena, Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom

David Price makes a real step up tonight against a highly experienced and ring smart opponent in american opponent Tony Thompson,

Price is being touted as the next big heavyweight prospect to come out of the UK and its been a while since the UK have had a proper dominant heavyweight boxer who can potentially reign on the world stage for a lenghty period of time.

Therefore you understand the excitement around Price but hes certainly not there yet and there are still some issues with his movement when hes being backed up, however i believe Price is probably one of if not the biggest puncher in the heavyweight division at the moment (a statement i know), i believe if Price catches any heavyweight flush with his biggest shot he wins any fight, there and then.

That is what makes David Price so dangerous and in my opinion a future world heavyweight champion.

However i do believe tonight will not be as easy as previously and Tony Thompson is being massively underestimated in this fight, this is a guy who went 11 rounds with Wladimir Klitschko and he actually had moments in his first fight with Wlad and wasnt disgraced at all.

Now take all of Prices opponents to date and imagine them matched up with Wladimir Klitschko i think then you can get a real vision for the step up in class David Price makes tonight.

Tony Thompson isnt going to leave himself wide open to get banged out in the 1st round like others who have gone before Price, this guy is intelligent defensively, he can counter punch and David is going to have to be careful with him and box him.

I think we will see a cagey start from both fighters and they will probably feel each other out for the first couple of rounds, i think this fight could got to the middle rounds actually.

However at some point Price is going to find that big right.

This fight isnt really a betting fight, but im definitely up for having an interest bet, ive noticed Betfred have a special offer of if you pick a round and it wins they gave you an extra 25% of the odds on top.

Also its free registration for Boxnation to all Betfred customers, so Betfred are reallly the bookmaker to have a bet with on this fight.

ATR’s Bet – £10 on Price round 6 – 11/1 Betfred (enhanced to just under 14/1 with the 25% enhancement on top)
