If I was Thompson, I'd want a bit more respect, and would tell Mismatch to go **** himself.

Fury should have accepted the offer and said ''show me the money''.

Would be funny to see the garden gnome worm his way out of that one.
Agreed . The little runt looks around cos he can't keep a straight face in those interview he knows he's BS'ing the interviewer and fans.

Yeah, no way was he gonna pay $1m for Fury.

If Price lost, which is by possible, he's ****ed.

I don't buy his experience as an excuse in all honesty.

He's had a long amateur career, what is it now 14 pro fights or so?

He shouldn't be consecutively fighting over 40's. No way.

I think that he would only have to vacate if he doesnt fulfill his mandatory obligations or fights for the title proper....At least thats how it used to be

It's actually an embarrassing amount of money.

It is £25,000.

He will have to give 10% to his coach, 10-20% to his agent, pay for a training camp, flights, accomodation, per diems. Sparring partners at the top level are about £1k a week too.

And then 20 - 40% tax on top.

He'll be left with about £8,000 for his troubles.

Martin Rogan turned DOWN £70,000 to fight Tyson Fury on Rogan's doorstep (literally in fact) before then fighting at the Odyssey Arena earlier this year, presumably for about £130,000.

Is Maloney broke?!?

No chance this fight happens

£25,000 aint to bad seeing as Briggs got $40,000 for a world title fight against a Klit.

Briggs purse was apparently agreed to be $750,000 (according to him) and he had a lawsuit as he had only been paid $25,000 of it. They claimed $500,000 or something like that.

I think in the end Briggs got more then $40,000. I bloody hope so after the beating he took. But in grand scheme of things Maloney's showing himself up with big offers to Fury then tight as a ducks arse offers to Thompson.

And 41 years old? 99% of fighters are done by that age, and I'm talking about people who were a lot ****ing better in their prime than Tony Thompson.

I like Price a lot, I think he has skills and he seems like a good guy and he's british so naturally I want to root for him but I find myself taking the piss on here about him more and more.

His matchmaking is a ****ing JOKE. Can anyone else please tell me any other up and coming fighter in HISTORY who got matched with three 40+ in a row?

Is there one really? I doubt it, but someone please prove me wrong because it's a shocking state of affairs.

Absolute ****ing joke if you ask me.

I've followed Thompson for some time and if he hadn't fought Klitshcko he'd just be on a decent winning streak and I'd still be interested. Furthermore, Tony Thompson started boxing at 27. He's not had a long stretch of grueling fights and taken a lot of punishment. He's slower and doesn't have the movement he used to have but he's still a very solid fighter, in my estimation.

I don't see how it's a joke. You're focusing so much on the age but in all honesty, if they're at a respectable level for the time of career Price is at, focus on the level, not the age. For instance, to compare to a championship level situation with similarity, this is not much different than Chad Dawson fighting Glen Johnson, Antonio Tarver, Antonio Tarver, Glen Johnson, in a row. Because they were all still at the world level despite their age. It had nothing to do with age. It's about level, not age. Price's last two were at a good regional level for him and Thompson is still not proven to be anything other than a top 20 level heavyweight in the world as far as I'm concerned. And it has nothing to do with anything else, like having been better or how much better. It's a step forward, not sideways or backwards for Price. He's advancing the level of opponent, age regardless.

I don't see how it could be twisted into being a bad thing unless you really had an axe to grind.

Fair enough, In all honesty the Thompson fight isn't a joke, it's just a joke that's his 3rd consecutive 40+ plus opponent.

Let's just hope Thompson turns up to win and not just for a few quid.
