Old heavyweight rivalry has come up again between UK based heavyweights Tyson Fury and David Price, a bit out of the blew it should be added.
A few years back the pair had a well publicised rivalry when Fury was starting out in his career.
Price was the next big heavyweight to watch out for at the time. Fury famously blasted Price at the time by calling him a:
“Big stiff idiot.”
Here’s what he said in its entirety
Alas, nothing ever happened following a string of defeats for Price and Fury’s career going on a more upward trajectory that saw him capture the heavyweight title of the world in 2015.
As fate and timing would have it, it appears a clash could be on the horizon for Fury’s first comeback to boxing in early 2018 after he topped a poll by Fury asking fans who they’d like to see him in with next.
This sparked a fresh Twitter beef between the two, with Fury starting it off by saying:
Who would still like to see me vs my oldest rival @DavidPrice_1 the Big stiff plumber.??????

To which Price replied in humour:
Tyson I'm the last (and only) Englishman to beat you! I know deep down you still want revenge. Now if you don't mind I'm fitting an en suite https://t.co/VHaroThIbI

From a timing perspective it could make a lot of sense for both fighters to make the fight next up.
Fury will have not boxed since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 – while Price is coming off a stoppage loss to Christian Hammer back in February.
