David Price looks set to face an undefeated opponent when the ‘Big Horrible Heavyweight’ returns home to Liverpool, England on March 30.
Despite being linked to clashes with Dave Allen and Lucas Browne in 2019, the 23-6 puncher, who has 19 KO’s, WBN has learned Price is on the verge of securing Kash Ali as his opponent.
Murmurings around the press conference in Liverpool have Ali as the firm favorite to be in the opposite corner at the Echo Arena.
Ali is currently 14-0 but has not competed anywhere near the level Price has.
The 26 year-old from Birmingham intends to warm-up for Price against Kamil Sokolowski next month.
It may not be as straightforward, though, as Sokolowski stopped Nick Webb last time out and is in confident mood.
Sokolowski is a known dangerman despite a deceptive record of six wins from 22 contests.
IN THE MIX
For Price (???? Dave Thompson), the outing represents a first Merseyside bout for some two and a half years.
“I’m looking forward to it. It’s ten years to the weekend that I turned pro and I haven’t even had 30 fights yet,” said Price as Wednesday’s media gathering.
“I haven’t got much mileage on the clock, that’s the truth. I’ve had six stoppage defeats, two of them have been genuine knockouts. The other four, I’ve kind of beat myself.
“The older I’m getting the wiser I’m getting, more mature. I do still believe that my best years are still to come.
“I haven’t got many years left but I am looking after myself and living the life. Heavyweights mature later in their careers.
“There’s a lot of big names in the division who all need dance partners and there’s no reason I can’t throw my name back in the mix with a couple more wins.
“The opportunity is here to do it and I appreciate it greatly. I intend on delivering on March 30,” he added.
Two of Price’s future targets are now set to meet in April. With the winner of Allen v Browne firmly in the Liverpool man’s sights.
