The British Boxing Board of Control says it has suspended Ali pending a hearing. Ali also has had his purse, estimated to be about 20,000 pounds ($26,000), withheld. When Price was asked after Saturday's fight about a rematch against Ali, he said: "I don't want to share a ring with an animal like that again."
In 1999, British middleweight Adrian Dodson was banned for 18 months after being found guilty of biting opponent Alain Bonnamie.
