Can David Price make a comeback?

It looks like many boxing critics have all but given up on British heavyweight David Price but Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua has not.

“I remember for sure everyone was bigging him up. Not everyone’s going to be the Mike Tyson or the next Muhammad Ali,” said Joshua.

He does make a good point. Many will recall that Wladimir Klitschko was knocked out three times in the early part of his career before hooking up with the late excellent defensive trainer, Emmanuel Steward. His whole approach was changed. An approach that he still uses to this day, despite many criticisms that he just does enough to win.

Price excited fans with his style of going forward and landing big bombs, which worked against fighters that are shells of themselves such as Matt Skelton. But once you step up your level of competition then you cannot keep doing the same thing. Unfortunately for Price, he has still to learn that. Before he was stopped inside 2 rounds against Erkan Teper, it looked like Price still retained that kind of confidence to be a bit wreckless by throwing hooks instead of setting up any kind of technique or jab behind them. He is 6’8 in height and has a 82″ reach advantage. So why not use that?

Price has worked with a number of trainers including Franny Smith, Adam Booth and Tommy Brooks but he may need somebody who has a talent for getting inside the minds of his boxers. Its okay to change the physical part, but the physicality all starts with the mentality! And he may need somebody who can work on his mental state now more than ever after suffering his third KO loss!

It is not mission impossible but David Price certainly has an uphill struggle from here. It all depends how much he wants to achieve the success that he has dreamed about. If he dedicates himself and is willing to change what is normally organic to him then he still has a “fighting chance.”

The ball is in his court.
