Boxing: Mike Tyson’s former trainer Tommy Brooks is right man for David Price


British heavyweight David Price has hired Mike Tyson’s former trainer Tommy Brooks as his new coach.

Brooks, who also trained Evander Holyfield as well as Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko, will fly in from the United States to undertake training camps with Price, who has split with trainer Adam Booth after just two months.

“I have been waiting for the phone to ring to work with a fighter who can make it to the top,” said Brooks.

Price, the former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, was due to fight Russia’s Evgeny Orlov in Germany on 14 December but was forced to pull out because of a virus.
