David Price: I haven’t got much mileage, can get back in the mix
David Price has revealed he believes the best is yet to come after returning to winning ways against Tom Little in December.
Price defeated the fellow Brit via TKO in the fourth-round to end a run of successive defeats to Russian duo Sergey Kuzmin and Alexander Povetkin.
The Olympian, who marks his return on a stacked March 30 card in Liverpool, is in a positive frame of mind ahead of what could be a busy 2019.
“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. 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.”
With the heavyweight division red-hot at the moment, Price has admitted he’s relishing the chance of getting another shot at the big time.
And with boxing politics being a big issue as of recent times, the Liverpudlian is optimistic of opportunities coming his way.
“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.”
