Price to face Chisora in October showdown

DAVID PRICE AFTER WIN OVER DAVID ALLEN

David Price has accepted to face Dereck Chisora after been chosen to replace the injured Joseph Parker.

 

The former WBO heavyweight champion Parker was due to face Zimbabwean-born British boxer Chisora, but pulled out of the bout due to illness which made it difficult for him to train.

 

Michael Hunter, Oscar Rivas, Alexander Povetkin, Otto Walin and Manuel Charr were all considered, but 36-year old Price (25-6, 20 KOs) was given the nod ahead of the aforementioned names.

 

Liverpool born Price comes into the bout on the back of three consecutive victories over Tom Little, Kash Ali and Dave Allen after back to back losses to Alexander Povetkin and Sergey Kuzmin.

 

Chisora (31-9, 22 KOs) on his part secured double victories against Senad Gashi and Arthur Szpilka since an 11th round loss to rival Dillian Whyte almost a year ago.

 

Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn announced on Tuesday that the heavyweights will meet on October 26 at the O2 Arena in London.
