Tony Thompson: 'David Price win was no fluke'

American heavyweight Tony Thompson insists that he is ready to prove to boxing fans that his win over David Price earlier this year wasn't "lucky".

American heavyweight Tony Thompson has brushed off suggestions that he didn't deserve his victory over David Price in February.

Thompson stopped Price inside two rounds but after agreeing to a rematch that will take place on July 6, the former world title challenger has revealed that he intends to prove that he is "a bad guy".

The 41-year-old told Sky Sports News: "People who think I was lucky in our first fight know nothing about fighting.

"People want to make excuses about why people aren't successful, but people who tell David that aren't doing him any favours because I'm a bad guy and I'm going to prove that."

Price's defeat was the first of his professional career.
