The rebuilding process begins for David Price (15-2, 13 KOs) on December 14 when he travels to Neubrandenburg, Germany to face Evgeny Orlov (14-12-1, 10 KOs).
‘‘I am excited to be starting this new chapter in my career,’’ said Price. ‘‘My training with Adam (Booth) has been going really well. We have made some changes in the gym and been working on a few different things for this fight. Come fight night people will see these changes in my performance.
‘‘My opponent Orlov is a tough guy so I am not taking anything for granted but I have seen him in training camps and watched him fight so I know what I need to do to beat him. I can’t wait to get back in the ring and get the ball rolling.’’ Continue reading

Promoter Frank Warren today won the purse bids for the big heavyweight clash between David Price and Dereck Chisora for the British title. Finchley puncher Chisora is currently preparing for his European title defence against Matteo Modugno on Saturday 30th November at the Copper Box Arena.
Chisora has previously held the Lonsdale belt when he defeated Danny Williams in May 2010 to win the title and made a defence against Sam Sexton before losing it to Tyson Fury. He’s is in the best form of his career with three back-to-back stoppages this year against Hector Alfredo Avila, top American Malik Scott and winning the European title with a sensational performance against Edmund Gerber. Chisora said, “I’m concentrating on the undefeated Italian Modugno right now and defending my European title is my priority, but I’m excited that I’ll be facing Price,”
“I do miss holding the British title though, it’s a beautiful belt and I want to win it again on the way to the world title.” A date and venue will be advised within the two week deadline set by the BBBofC.
After speaking and meeting with a number of world class boxing trainers, David Price has made up his mind on who will train him from here on in. Price, the British and Commonwealth champion, recently split with Franny Smith and he will now work with Adam Booth.
Boxing News Magazine’s web site has reported this news and Price, who must come back after back-to-back losses to Tony Thompson, told B N how he feels Booth is the man to bring out his true potential.
“It’s a fresh start,” Price said. “I can leave behind what has happened but know that I’ve learnt from it. I’ve got the passion back now and am looking forward to getting on shape and putting a few things right. I asked Adam if I could have a chat and perhaps get some advice. We did a few sessions together just to see how it would work, and then he agreed to train me. I’ve got a good feeling about this move, and truly believe Adam is the man to bring out my true potential.” Continue reading
David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) and Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) will be meeting up on September 28th at the Manchester Arena, in Manchester, UK. This Thursday, Haye and Fury will be announcing the fight. The fight itself promises to be a rather easy one for Haye, because Fury hasn’t looked good against the mediocre opposition he’s faced thus during his 5 year pro career.
However, Fury should at least win the press conference this Thursday and all the remaining press conferences as well. Haye will likely let Fury do most of the talking in building this fight, because his chances of getting the better of Fury in the trash talking department are slim and none.
Fury is one of those types of fighters that are willing and ready to say anything. He tends to get heated when his opponents try and trash talk him back. Continue reading
Heavyweight David Price (15-2, 13 KO’s) is at the worst point of his still young career following his 5th round TKO loss to American Tony Thompson (38-3, 26 KO’s) last Saturday night in Liverpool, UK.
A lot of boxing fans are wondering whether Price will hang up the gloves are not, because at this point his future prospects look pretty bleak in terms of accomplishing anything at the world level or making a lot of money. However, Price says he won’t be retiring. He’s going to be continuing and working his back from the bottom. Continue reading

Unbeaten heavyweight talent Deontay Wilder (28-0, 28 KO’s) think David Price (15-2, 13 KO’s) needs work on his conditioning so that he won’t run out of gas in the future like he did last Saturday night in his 5th round TKO loss to Tony Thompson (38-3, 26 KO’s). Wilder also thinks Price needs to be a little less cautious when he fights. Continue reading
After watching heavyweight David Price (15-2, 13 KO’s) gas out and get stopped in the 5th round last Saturday night by Tony Thompson (38-3, 26 KO’s), undefeated Tyson Fury thinks his cousin 18-year-old Hughie Fury (6-0, 4 KO’s) has the skills and the power to defeat Price if he’s open to fighting the 6’6’ Hughie in September. It’s unclear how serious the offer is from Fury, but if it’s a serious one it would be a tremendous test for the inexperienced Hughie.
No one would blame heavyweight David Price (15-2, 13 KO’s) is he were to choose to retire from the sport following his 5th round stoppage defeat the hands of Tony Thompson (38-3, 26 KO’s) last Saturday night, but that’s not what Price intends on doing. Continue reading
