Price to go 'back to the drawing board'

David Price will go back to the drawing board with his mentor Lennox Lewis after suffering another devastating stoppage defeat to Tony Thompson.

The giant Liverpool heavyweight was desperate to beat Thompson after his shocking loss to the American in February.

But the American proved it was no fluke by getting off the canvas to stop Price in the fifth round of their rematch at the Echo Arena last night.

Price linked up with former heavyweight champion Lewis to prepare for the fight and the pair will continue to work together.

"We know what we need to fix so we'll go back to the drawing board and fix it.

"David is still British champion and that's not easy to do. He's a big man in the game.

"You have to work very hard and answer a lot of questions in that ring that the crowd are going to put to you.

"They're going to ask you if you have a good chin, if you have good stamina, if you can box on the inside, on the outside, and if you cut easily."
