British light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew labels fellow Scouser David Price the ‘heir to the Klitschko throne’ as he stamps his Mersey charm all over a post-career punditry role after some sterling work for Sky Sports at the Price vs Sexton bill. Bellew stays on long after every punter has left the building to talk to iFilm London about the promising heavyweight, the fight game in Liverpool and his next outing in the ring.
Liverpudlian heavyweight David Price put on a punch-perfect performance to stop Sam Sexton in the fourth round of their British and Commonwealth title clash at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday night.
Price dropped Sexton twice before a devastating short right, two minutes and seven seconds into the fourth round, forced referee Howard Foster to wave the contest off with the Norwich man laying flat out on the canvas.
David Price believes coming out on top at Aintree Equestrian Centre this weekend against Sam Sexton for the British heavyweight title will be the ‘biggest achievement’ of his career, piping his Commonwealth and Olympic medals.
Promoter Frank Maloney has announced that David Price and Sam Sexton will meet for the vacant British heavyweight title at Liverpool's Aintree Racecourse on Saturday, May 19.
The pair will square off at the Equestrian Centre on the course, and Maloney has earmarked the venue as the Liverpudlian giant’s new home for his next few fights.
