David Price will return to action in May in a “stay busy” fight before a homecoming fight in July in Liverpool.
The 31-year-old British heavyweight hasn’t fought in his home city since a calamitous second defeat to Tony Thompson in July 2013. Since then, the British and Commonwealth champion has gone on the road with new promoters Sauerland and racked up four straight wins, three in Germany and one in Denmark.
Speaking to WBN earlier today, Price revealed who he and his team are looking at facing in the summer.
“The names that have been mentioned – Tomasz Adamek, but I don’t think that’s going to happen for one reason or another. Contact was made though.
“There’s people out there like Manuel Charr who would be a great opponent and it would be a great fight. Someone like Charr would suit my style. Strong but pretty slow on his feet. That’s a fight I’d fancy.
“I’d quite fancy a Dereck Chisora fight if that could be made. I don’t know what’s getting said between the promoters. That interests me and it’s a bit of a crossroads fight too, and it would get the fans interested but it all depends on his situation if he’s taking a bit of time out or not.
“There’s a couple of names that should whet the appetite and then later in the year we’re looking at something even bigger. The Tyson Fury fight will happen if he fights Klitschko, and he’ll likely lose, so I’m sure that fight would happen, but we’re just taking it step-by-step.”
