American invasion by Price may be near

British boxer David Price, the 6’8 250 lbs. wonder, upped his record to 12-0 with 10 KO’s after scoring a 73-second, three-knockdown victory over heralded John McDermott Saturday night at the Olympia in Price’s home town of Liverpool.

This fight either sets up Price to fight British and Commonwealth Champion Tyson Fury or his American debut at famed Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY.

A sellout crowd of 5,000 was in attendance to witness the short and decisive destruction by Price.

“Before a Fury fight could take place, Price could fight March 17 on the Sergio Martinez vs. Matthew Macklin middleweight championship at the Garden,” said Price’s promoter Frank Maloney.

“A fight in America is very possible. It would be an important fight in front of American fans and media,” said Maloney. “A Fury fight might not take place until late April or May.

“I have been in contact with American promoters and agents and plan to travel to New York next week. A fight in Texas is also a possibility. David would like to fight at the billion dollar Cowboys Stadium in Dallas if that is possible,” Maloney added.

“The public would like to see me fight Fury so I hope that fight is made,” said Price.
