Lennox Lewis has pulled no punches when dissecting the abilities and flaws of heavyweight contenders David Haye and Tyson Fury.

Lewis - the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world - has been helping David Price before his rematch against Tony Thompson on July 6.

And Lewis believes Price is top of the pile when he is compared to Haye and Fury.

“When Fury says he would have smashed me and is better than all the great heavyweight champions down the years, I say to him - Who are you?

“You will never accomplish as much as the men you are disrespecting.

“Tyson has been knocked down by cruiserweights, His chin is vulnerable. Timber.

“And Haye is no longer the new generation. Having held a world title briefly and then been beaten by Wladimir Klitchscko he is between generations.

“We lost confidence in him after the way he lost to Wladimir. Now he’s just shuffling around looking for people to fight for money.

“I fought for the glory. David Price fights for the glory. He has learned a lot during our weeks together in Canada and back here. It’s not easy to become heavyweight champion of the world.

“It requires determination, the will, the desire. Price seems to have the desire and determination

“He fights for the glory - not the money.”
