The Greatest “What If” Project in Heavyweight Boxing, David Price, will be fighting a young, presumably game never was, Kash Ali, as an undercard support in Liverpool, England this Saturday, March 30th.
“Pricey” as he is still affectionately known by Brits has a record of 23-6, 19 KOs with all his losses by KO. That’s 29 fights total featuring 25 total KOs, a 83% KO win percentage with a total 86% of his fights ending in a KO win or lose.
Kash has a 15-0, 7 KO record against a “who’s that” cast of jelly beans. The only nondescript fighter he faced with a winning record he did manage to knock out though.
In comparison, Price is a 2008 Olympic Bronze medal winner who after several years of careful development, fired up in a meteoric flash across boxing’s horizon with resounding KOs of fellow fringe contender, Tom Dallas, followed by highly credentialed Brits, John McDermott, Sam Sexton, Audley Harrison, and Matt Skelton over a 2 year span. The world was his oyster as fans ooohed and ahhhed his every conclussive, concussive knockout to anoint him the savior and uncrowned champion of heavyweight boxing.
Alas, Tony Thompson, a cagey, highly experienced American southpaw makes his first of 2 entries to knock Pricey into Never Never Land that started Price’s 8-6 run with nary a win over a decent opponent while losing every step up fight. Previously adoring fans were now ravaging him over the internet, but his loyal fans remained steady, and so now he is at another seminal junction not only in his career, but as in Kash Ali’s career as well. Who you got?
