David Price: I’ll be looking to take Anthony Joshua’s head off from the shoulders

Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn is interested in matching former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (18-2, 15 KOs) against his unbeaten heavyweight Anthony Joshua (9-0, 9 KOs) next year in a fight that he believes the British boxing public will be interested in seeing. Judging by the boos from the British fans last Saturday night when Hearn floated that idea to them, it might not be a fight that the fans want to see.

Price was at ringside for Joshua’s 2nd round demolition of 34-year-old Russian journeyman Denis Bakhtov (38-10, 25 KOs) last night at the O2 Arena in London, UK. Price said that if he’s the guy that ends up facing the 6’6” Joshua next year, he’ll be looking to take his head off. Continue reading

David Price sidelined with hand injury, will return in December

Yesterday former British and Commonwealth Champion David Price (18-2, 15 KOs) underwent surgery to repair a damaged tendon in his right hand. The operation, performed by renowned hand specialist Mike Hayton, was a success and the 6ft 8’’ heavyweight is expected to make his ring return in December.

‘’I picked up a hand injury in my last fight against Zavorotnyi,’’ said Price. ‘’It had been four weeks and there had been no real improvement so I went to see Mike Hayton and we decided to open it up and see what the problem was. Continue reading

Warren: Price won’t be facing winner of Chisora-Fury

Liverpool’s David Price will not be in the running to fight the winner out of premier heavyweights Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury said promoter Frank Warren.

Price’s promoter Kalle Sauerland had said that it was ‘inevitable’ that Price would face the winner of Chisora and Fury, but Warren has said that won’t happen.

Bitter rivals Chisora and Fury clash in the biggest domestic heavyweight showdown in recent years at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester on Saturday 26th July, with the winner securing the WBO number one spot to challenge reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko. Continue reading

Price outpoints Zavorotnyi in Schwerin

David Price (18-2, 15 KOs) continued his comeback with a unanimous decision victory over Yaroslav Zavorotnyi (16-7, 14 KOs) at the Sport and Congress Center in Schwerin, Germany. After ten rounds of action the judges scored the fight 97-92, 98-92 and 100-90 in favour of the British heavyweight.

Price controlled the fight with his jab, while looking to unload his powerful right hand.

Although Zavorotnyi proved a durable opponent he offered little in reply to Price’s dominance, resulting in a well-earned points victory for the 6ft 8’’ Liverpudlian.

Brähmer defeats Bolonti; Price beats Zavorotnyi

WBA light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (44-2, 32 KO’s) retained his WBA 175lb title with a 12 round unanimous decision win over Robert Bolonti (35-3, 24 KO’s) on Saturday night in a largely one-sided decision at the Sport and Congress Center, Schwerin, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

Braehmer did little more than jab and grab for 12 rounds to get an easy win over Bolonti. Braehmer didn’t have to worry about anything big coming back at him because Bolonti didn’t have the power or the size to make a fight of it. He looked like an averaged size middleweight trying to fight at an aging light heavyweight in 35-year-old Braehmer.

The final judges’ scores reflected the mismatch with the judges scoring it 118-109, 119-109 and 119-108. Continue reading
