DAVID PRICE revealed he was tempted to lash out at Kash Ali immediately after being bitten by his former sparring partner in their heavyweight grudge bout over the weekend.

Ali was disqualified for the transgression in Liverpool on Saturday night, which has led to his boxing licence being suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control, pending a hearing.

The 27-year-old had appeared to be edging his way back into the contest when the pair fell to the canvas in the fifth round, after which Price complained of the bite, with a welt evident on the left side of his stomach.
