Tyson Fury has never been short of a few words, and moments after David Price lost on Saturday night the unbeaten heavyweight hit out at the Liverpudlian.

Price was defeated by Tony Thompson for the second time as the 30-year-old failed to get his revenge over the American for a first career loss in February, and shortly after the fight Fury came out and said: "Told you so".

Fury is currently in talks with former WBA champion David Haye over a fight later in the year, and he told World Boxing News his feelings on Price's defeat.

"David has no heart at all. I guess you can now call him a jacker!" Fury said.

"He can now go back to defending his British and Commonwealth titles and if Tony Thompson wants it after I knock out David Haye then he can have it too."

Thompson meanwhile says he would relish the opportunity to have a crack at Fury.

"I want another title shot. If I can't get that straight away then I would love to fight Tyson Fury. I want to make England my second home," the American said.
