MANSOUR CRYING WOLF? ISSUES CHALLENGE TO PRICE THEN BACKS DOWN


New York, NY (10/28/2011) - Earlier this week, heavyweight contender Amir Mansour (15-0, 11KO's), in search of an opponent for his upcoming bout on December 2nd in his home state of Delaware, reached out to DiBella Entertainment to see if their undefeated heavyweight, Kelvin Price (12-0, 6KO's), would be interested in facing the self-proclamined "feared" heavyweight. Price accepted the offer without any hesitation only to be informed the following day that Mansour was no longer interested in the fight.

"I mean no disrespect to Mansour, but I don't know what happened here," said Price. "This guy goes around saying how no one will fight him, everyone fears him, but as soon as I was contacted about the fight, I said, 'let's get it on,' and then the next day he says he doesn't want it anymore. That just makes no sense to me. I was willing to go into his backyard and put my undefeated record on the line. I'm a former basketball player that started boxing extremely late, and I can't get a fight from these so-called beasts in the boxing game. If you're not willing to compete or prove yourself then just shut up with the propaganda!"
