David Price wasted little time in calling out Tyson Fury for an all-British grudge heavyweight match after reaffirming his knockout power with a demolition of Matt Skelton in Liverpool.

Price retained his British and Commonwealth titles with a second-round stoppage of Skelton at Aintree Racecourse on Friday night, taking his unbeaten record to 15 professional fights. Fury and Price have been locked in a war of words for months, and Price has told Fury to "keep talking" to up the stakes ahead of a big-money showdown next year.

"Just keep talking," Price said on BoxNation. "Just keep doing what you're doing because we're having a good laugh at you while you're doing it, so keep doing it. It's going to make for a massive event when we fight.

"I'll just keep doing my talking in the ring. Tyson keeps doing his talking at press conferences or talking into camera phones and putting them on YouTube and things like that.

"As far as I'm concerned, he's getting serious about it and all that, but this is nothing but good fun for me because we're having a good laugh.

"I'm so lucky to have Tyson Fury around at this stage of my career and he's lucky to have me - as long as the fight can happen.

"We all need a nemesis in boxing, we're each other's rivals; we have a massive rivalry. Let's sell a stadium out, let's make the fight happen and let's make some money. The best man will win, which will be me, of course!"
