Adam Booth is not perfect fit for David Price, says Glenn McCrory
I am often quite sceptical when fighters switch trainers after a disappointing loss or two.Back to story

I think if David had been trained by Angelo Dundee or Manny Stewart he wouldn't have changed trainers either. Ali and Hearns were with their trainers a lot longer than Price's 4 years with Franny Smith and they also knew that they were being trained by the best in the business with all due respect Price couldn't feel the same way about Franny Smith. I think David is just trying to make the best of a bad situation, if he'd went with Booth from the time he turned pro and sparred with the likes of Haye then it would have probably been clearer, earlier, to himself and his trainer that he didn't have the best whiskers in the business and he could have been brought through with that knowledge informing his training and matchmaking. Don't get me wrong I still don't think he'd have made world champ but at least then David wouldn't have been such a target for his opponents who are now just targeting his chin from the off.

Glenn, good piece but Haye hardly ever fights these days so I don't think the argument about being lower priority is anything to worry about. I believe he's fought once since the Vladimir fight - was that 2 or 3 years ago now? Price has a lot of attributes but perhaps needs a fresh approach to improve the areas where he is falling short. I think it is a good move for him. Booth has good pedigree with heavyweights having won the world title with Haye and also now Groves has split he has plenty of time to devote to Price. The good thing about the Thompson fights is that at least it showed where he needs to improve and it was good to see he took those fights and wanted them rather than feeding off lower quality opponents for another 2 years. Best of luck for the future David - get a couple of wins back under your belt and the heavyweight scene is wide open.

I don't care what anyone says price is done, there's a lot of people on here saying a new trainer will sort it out, no if you can't beat an old man like tony thompson you won't ever touch the klitschkos truth, wilder would also knock out price!
