The rebuilding process continues for David Price (16-2, 14 KOs) when he returns to action on March 8th at the Max-Schmelling-Halle in Berlin.
‘’I am looking forward to getting back into the ring and picking up where I left off in Stuttgart,’’ said Price. ‘’Obviously, I wouldn’t complain if the outcome is the same but I am hoping for a bit more resistance this time. I’d like to get a bit more ring time so I can show everyone what I have been working on and what I am capable of.’’
The British Heavyweight will start a four-week training camp this weekend when renowned US coach Tommy Brooks travels over to Liverpool. ‘’Things are going great with Tommy,’’ said Price. ‘’We have been focusing a lot on my jab and developing that into my main tool. Other than that, it’s back to basics, making sure we do the simple things well.’’
Price is no stranger to the German capital, having previously spent time in the Team Sauerland gyms. ‘’The last time I was in Berlin was for a Sauerland training camp, working with Kubrat Pulev, just before I fought for the British title back in 2012,’’ reveals Price. ‘’I have some good memories from my time in Berlin. It’s a great city and I am looking forward to fighting there on March 8th.’’
Said promoter Kalle Sauerland: ‘It was important for us to get Pricey back in the ring as soon as possible. He did a good job against a limited opponent in Stuttgart but now we must start stepping it up. Berlin is fantastic city and is very accessible from the UK, so we will be expecting a lot of fans to make the trip over to support the big man. We will announce his opponent in the coming weeks.’’
The former British and Commonwealth Champion is the latest addition to the Team Sauerland show at the Max-Schmelling-Halle. IBF Cruiserweight Champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (28-1, 14 KOs) tops the bill, as he makes his first voluntary defense against the highly rated Pawel Kolodziej (33-0, 18 KOs).
