Images: David Price comes in lighter for European title clash
David Price (19-2, 16 KOs) and Erkan Teper (14-0, 9 KOs) took to the scales on Friday ahead of their European Heavyweight title fight on Friday night at the MHP Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
Price, who tipped the scales at 113.1kg (17st 11lbs 1oz), looked in fine form as he attempts to wrestle the vacant European crown from the undefeated Teper, weighing in at 114.3kg (17st 13lbs 9oz), on Saturday night.
‘’I feel great,’’ said the former British and Commonwealth Champion. ‘’I’m calm, collected and ready to go. This is a good weight for me. I’ve come in a little lighter than my last fight, but I’ve had a longer camp so that’s to be expected. I honestly believe I’m in the best shape of my career.
‘’Now I just want to get in there and get the job done. I’m not worried about Teper, I just need to concentrate on what I’m doing. He’s a good boxer, he’s undefeated and has some decent wins on his record, but he’s never fought anyone like me. Mentally and physically, I couldn’t be better prepared. I’m 100% confident and ready to bring the belt home!’’
