By Michael Collins: British/Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (14-0, 12 KO’s) faces a badly overmatched opponent tonight in 45-year-old Matt Skelton (28-6, 23 KO’s) at the Aintree Equestrian Centre, Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom. This isn’t a fight that’s going to give Price anything other than a brief sparring session before he knocks Skelton out.
The 29-year-old Price has been brought along really slowly despite his Olympic background and he needs to be pushed a little faster.
Price says “I’m moving fast towards a world title shot. Next year will be massive for me”
The talk is that Price will be looking to fight at 40ish American heavyweight in 2013. In other words, another journeyman level opponent that won’t do much for him. However, if the fight is televised in the United States, it will give American boxing fans a chance to see Price fight.
