David Price refuses to give in. The former Olympian and former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champ has been written off more times than he cares to remember, yet he is set to give it one final push next month.

According to a news piece in The Liverpool Echo, the 34 year old one-time “sure thing” has parted with trainer Dave Coldwell – the man who attempted to pick up the pieces and salvage Price’s career after his stoppage loss to Erkan Teper – and is now working with George Vaughan, along with former champ Derry Matthews and Joe McNally. Price, 21-4(18) will face a TBA on the September 16 card at The Echo Arena in Liverpool topped by Callum Smith against Erik Skoglund in The WBSS 168 pound tournament.

My Thoughts On David Price’s Future

David Price - David Price fell victim to his 4th pro defeat on Saturday night against Christian Hammer. Hammer was down in the 5th, yet sadly the almost 20 stone Price couldn’t make the most of that and “gassed”, so that Hammer was able to stop him on his feet in the 7th round. Price was visibly finished, so much so, that he really struggled to get up off his stool in the corner, a good 3 - 4 minutes after the fight.

Christian Hammer stops David Price, Price’s career could be over

David Price - Tonight in London in the chief support to the Eubank-Quinlan IBO super-middleweight title fight, Germany's Christian Hammer stopped an exhausted David Price in the 7th-round of an exciting heavyweight battle. Price, in a must-win fight, had huge success early on, dropping Hammer and hurting him a number of times, but he simply ran out of gas and wilted when a determined Hammer showed he was tough enough to stick around.

The end came at the 1:20-second mark of the 7th, when Price, stuck on the ropes, open-mouthed and taking shots, forced the referee to dive in and halt the fight.

David Price feels he is two wins away from a world title shot, also says Tyson Fury fight remains a possibility

David Price - When you have been KO'd three times in quite rapid succession the way heavyweight contender David Price has, every fight is a potentially career ending one. One more KO loss, and it could be the end of Price, at least at anything like top level.

When you have been KO’d three times in quite rapid succession the way heavyweight contender David Price has, every fight is a potentially career ending one. One more KO loss, and it could be the end of Price, at least at anything like top level.

Price and his team are surely aware of this as the former British champion and former Olympian heads into his February 4 fight with Christian Hammer, this fight being the first real test for Price since being blasted by Tony Thompson (twice) and Erkan Teper (who was out-pointed by Hammer in his last fight). But the giant from Liverpool is very optimistic right now, as well as confident. Price, in speaking with Nick Parkinson, said he feels he is two wins away from a world title shot, possibly the WBO title currently held by Joseph Parker.

Newly crowned WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is lining up his first title challenger for April 8, and there are at least three names in the running for the shot. Parker could fight a British foe in David Price or Hughie Fury, or he could face unbeaten New Yorker Jarrell Miller.

According to a piece on Sky Sports News, who spoke with Price, Parker’s people are keen on “showcasing” Parker in the UK, and would therefore prefer a British challenger for April. Bob Arum, who was quoted as speaking with Boxing Talk, said the April challenger will be either Price or “Big Baby” Miller.

Tony Thompson calls David Price out for third fight – “No chance,” says Price

Eric Molina, David Price gunning for December shot at Joshua; but they may fight each other instead

David Price - With Anthony Joshua's next fight, set for December 10, still up in the air opponent-wise, a number of name heavyweights are calling for the next shot at the reigning IBF heavyweight title holder. With no decision yet given by the WBA with regards to whether or not the organisation will sanction a Wladimir Klitschko-Joshua fight, promoter Eddie Hearn has already been eyeing potential replacement foes for his fighter.

With no decision yet given by the WBA with regards to whether or not the organisation will sanction a Wladimir Klitschko-Joshua fight, promoter Eddie Hearn has already been eyeing potential replacement foes for his fighter.

And two men who have thrown their hat into the ring are Mexican/American Eric Molina, and fellow Brit David Price. At one point in time it looked as though Price and Molina would fight each other on the Joshua under-card in Manchester – and this intriguing fight could still happen – but now both contenders want AJ next.

David Price will box a six-rounder on Braehmer-Cleverly card, then possibly box Joseph Parker on November 26

David Price - Former British heavyweight champ David Price will continue his comeback under new trainer Dave Coldwell out in Germany, when the 33-year-old will box a six-rounder against a TBA on the Juergen Braehmer-Nathan Cleverly card on Saturday, October 1. After that, Price will appear on the under-card of Anthony Joshua's November 26 IBF title defence (which could see AJ fight Wladimir Klitschko in what would of course be a huge fight).
