Gerwyn Price and Adrian Lewis collided on stage at the Czech Darts Open. After his defeat, the Welshman initially refused to congratulate him. The two former world champions then engaged in a fierce word fight. Wrestler Russ Bray had to judge.

Adrian Lewis was world champion in 2011 and 2012. “Jackpot” was considered the legitimate successor to legend Phil Taylor. It’s a long time ago … He’s currently ranked 39th in the Order of Merit and has struggled in vain for years to return to the top of the world.

At the Czech Darts Open in Prague, the 37-year-old showed his qualities at least once again. After beating Ted Evets 6: 3 on Friday, he met tournament favorite Gerwyn Price in the second round and caused a sensation during the match. When the score was 3: 3, he threw eight perfect arrows and thus missed his 14th nine-darter. The fact that he then had to use ten more arrows to break to 4: 3 just in time was an appropriate metaphor for his entire career.

But it was still enough for the break, and the two subsequent rounds also went to the Englishman, so the first round of 16 on the European Tour in three years was perfect. Lewis, however, was – once again – involved in an ugly altercation.

The conversation between the two was quickly interrupted by Russ Bray. The muscular ringer immediately recognized the explosive nature of the situation and placed himself between the two fighters. The veteran then dismissed Price from the scene while constantly tooting and pointing the index finger at Lewis.

There have been recurring issues between the two over the past six years, and as with the previous clashes, this duel is likely to continue on social media.

It was not until November that security was to settle a dispute between Lewis and world champion Peter Wright at the Players Championship Finals. The sporty continues for Lewis on Sunday. In the round of 16 (from 13.00 live on DAZN) he meets Vincent van der Voort, who narrowly beat Martin Schindler.
