Gary Cornish could fight David Price ‘down the line’

AFTER 12 twelve rounds against Sam Sexton in October, Gary Cornish found himself on the wrong end of a unanimous decision as his opponent denied him the chance to become the first Scotsman to claim the British title at heavyweight.

“It was a really bad camp I had” Cornish tells me, “I had a few things happen I don’t want to talk about. I don’t want to take anything away from Sam because he deserved it on the night but I thought if I’d had a proper camp I could have won that fight.”

While it was a tough loss to take, Cornish sounds like a fighter doing a good job of bouncing back. “I had a wee break after [the Sexton fight], just to get my thoughts and all that together. I decided the best choice was to go back to where I was comfortable. I’ve got great training back home from my old amateur coach. I’ve never actually seen a coach so enthusiastic in all my life.”
