A failed medical test has led to another change of opponent for David Price (15-2, 13 KOs). The British heavyweight will now face Istvan Ruzsinsky (12-9, 8 KOs) on Saturday night in Stuttgart.
“It is unfortunate but these things are part of the game,” said promoter Kalle Sauerland. “We are happy to have found a suitable replacement who was due to be fighting already and will be in top fighting fit condition.”
“I am very happy to be here,” said Price. “I have been looking forward to this day all week and I am glad it has finally come. Tomorrow, I get the chance to get back under the lights and do what I do best.
“Obviously I was a little disappointed when I first found out but these things are out of my control. I still need to get in, do a professional job and make sure I concentrate on what I have been working on in the gym.”
David Price’s first fight with his new promoters Team Sauerland is available to watch on Box Nation from 6pm. Alongside Price’s return, boxing fans can look forward to the rematch between WBO Cruiserweight Champion Marco Huck and Firat Arslan.
It hasn’t been easy for David Price to get this comeback fight scheduled and completed. This is at least the third actual opponent who was lined up, and of course the fight was also delayed for a time as well. He’s also changed trainers, too. Let’s just get him back in the ring and see how he does!
