"That was only officially made up in my mind about six weeks ago."

"Age, 38.

"The hunger was no longer there. That's massive, which is why your elite fighters like Tyson, like Canelo, like AJ, they have got as much money as they will ever need.

Price took up the sport professionally in 2009 after winning a bronze medal in the Beijing Olympic games in 2008 as an amateur. He had also won gold at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and 2008 EU Championship, and three ABA titles- all in the super heavy weights division.
