Price confirms Fury plan
David Price has paved the way clear to fight bitter British heavyweight rival Tyson Fury in 2013 after branding him an 'idiot'.
The 29-year-old has spoken out about Fury, who is facing punishment from the British Boxing Board of Control after an abusive Twitter rant aimed at Price following his comfortable defeat of Audley Harrision on Saturday evening.
Harrison, former world champion David Haye and former opponent Dereck Chisora were also targeted by Fury in his rant leaving British and Commonwealth champion Price fearful of the impact it will have on the sport, while confirming he would be open for a showdown in the ring.
Price told BBC Sport: "He's idiotic and giving the sport a bad name the way he's running round like a playground bully."
He added: "We are grown men and no-one bullies anyone as far as I'm concerned, and especially not him.
"There is a genuine dislike for each other and that is going to make for a great fight. A massive fight.
"He's getting angry, and I say keep talking, because he's building the fight. The things he's saying aren't bothering me in the slightest.
"It's like dealing with a kid at school talking absolute nonsense.
"I'd take the fight this week but the reality is it's more likely to happen next summer some time. Keep building it along nicely. Let Tyson do his promotional work on Twitter or whatever else and I'll let my fists do the talking as usual."
