He was looking for a way out – Price slams Ali over bite
David Price believes Kash Ali was "looking for a way out" by biting him during their heavyweight fight in Liverpool on Saturday.
Ali was disqualified in the fifth round after appearing to bite fellow Brit Price at the M&S Bank Arena.
Price slammed his opponent, saying the bite came as a result of Ali being on the verge of defeat.
"Before the fight he was like a lunatic looking across the ring at me. From early on he was throwing the head in and trying to bite me," he told MTK Global.
"It got a bit scrappy at times, and in the fifth round I give away a few shots to try and let him blow out a bit.
"I hit him with a left to the body and he winced, then fell on top of me and bit me. He had already bit me earlier in the fight and was looking for a way out.
"I broke his nose in the second or third round and shook him, but let him off the hook a bit. It was a 10-round fight so I didn't want to do too much too soon. It's a bit of a disappointing result for me, but it's done now, and it's onwards and upwards."
