Unbeaten super bantamweight prospect, Hopey Price says he wants to secure domestic titles by the end of the year.
Price (6-0, 2 KOS) fights for the seventh time as a professional when he clashes with Ricardo Roman at Alexandra Palace on Saturday night, on the undercard of Daniel Jacobs’ showdown with John Ryder, live on DAZN.
The 21-year-old is set to also feature in his hometown of Leeds on March 26 on the undercard of Kiko Martinez’s IBF featherweight title defence against Josh Warrington and the Yorkshireman is keen to get his hands on domestic straps by the end of the year.
“I just want to win as many titles as possible,” Price told proboxing-fans.com last month.
“The quicker I can get in these title fights the better.
“I’ve started off very busy. February I’ll be boxing, March I’ll be boxing.
“Then as soon as I can get out again, I’m ready to go at all times, I’m always in the gym.
“Towards the end of the year, I want to start looking towards the domestic titles, whether it be British, the Commonwealth titles like that.
“I want to be winning them titles.”
Price, a 2018 Youth Olympic Gold medalist, claimed the IBO international super bantamweight title with a second round stoppage over Zahid Hussain at Headingley Stadium in September.
The southpaw talent, who is trained by Dave Coldwell, believes he will continue to put on statement performances, as the level of competition increases.
“[It went] exactly how I wanted it to go, exactly how I planned for it to go,” Price said of his win over Hussain.

“I always said the better the opponent, the better me you’ll see and I think stepping up now you will see the best of me.
“I believe I will put a statement on every time I fight, because if a fighter’s coming to win it gives me more opportunity to do what I’m trying to do.”
