This Is Sadden…David Price Announces Retirement From Boxing At Age 38

Published

on

British heavyweight David Price has announced his retirement at age 38, ending his 12-year professional career. Price (25-7, 20 KOs) hasn’t fought in two years since losing to journeyman Derek Chisora by a fourth round knockout in October 2019.

 

 

The big 6’8″ Price admits that he no longer had the “hunger” to continue fighting after two years out of the ring, even though he can still fight and would have opportunities.

 

 

Price says he’s got a business and properties, so he no longer needs to stay active in boxing like he once did.

 

 

The 2008 Olympic bronze medalist Price was viewed earlier in his career as the “British Klitschko” by some boxing fans with the way he started in the pro ranks with a string of knockouts from 2009 to 2012.

 

 

Things turned sour for Price when he was matched against the experienced former world title challenger Tony Thompson in 2012 and stopped in the second round.

 

 

Most boxing fans would agree that it was a mistake for Price’s promoter to match him against an experienced veteran like the 6’5″ southpaw Thompson. At that early stage in Price’s career, he lacked the ring experience to face Thompson.

 

 

Price’s promoter then made the mistake of putting him back in immediately with Thompson in a rematch five months later in July 2013, and he was knocked out in the fifth round this time.

 

 

From there, Price’s career sunk into mediocrity, suffering an additional five knockout defeats against B-level opposition before calling it a day.

 

“I haven’t officially announced that I’ve retired, but I won’t be fighting anymore. You won’t see me in a boxing ring again for a fight,” said David Price
