David Price-Dereck Chisora Bout Ordered By BBBoC

By Terence Dooley


The BBBoC put a potential contest between Liverpool’s David Price and London’s Dereck Chisora out to purse bids yesterday.  Although he has suffered back-to-back losses to Tony Thompson, Price is still the British heavyweight champion and has been ordered to defend against newly minted European titlist Dereck Chisora by the end of February 2014.  The purse bids are due in by Wednesday November 13th.

 

A meeting with “Del Boy” would give Price a crack at a new title and allow the popular 30-year-old title-holder to begin the rebuilding process.  Price, 15-2 (13), lost by second and fifth-round KO to Thompson in quick succession this year, but prior to that he was firing on all cylinders and regularly defended his British title.  Chisora, 18-4 (12), won the EBU belt by stopping Edmund Gerber in five last month and also handed Malik Scott his first defeat in July to push himself into world title contention.  The 29-year-old is due out again at the Coppex Box Arena on November 30th, opponent TBA.

 

In other title news, Martin Gethin, 24-4-1 (11), will defend his British lightweight title against former holder Anthony Crolla, 26-4-1 (9), on the undercard of Carl Froch versus George Groves on November 23rd.  The fight takes place at Manchester’s Phones 4U Arena and is Crolla’s first since joining Eddie Hearn and Matchroom.

Very bad timing for Price. He loses this one, he's done. But it will give Chisora some quite nice momentum. Maybe to chase Tyson's rematch.

let's not forget tony Thompson is a southpaw. how many southpaws has price fought? having little experience fighting southpaws could have contributed to those losses. price lost his team with Maloney's retirement but he can get a fresh start with…

the one thing I will always say is a few losses is not always a bad thing. chisora has turned himself into a solid fighter through experience vs top level competition. yes he may have lost but the helenius &…

[QUOTE=soul_survivor;13830175]Chisora is all wrong for Price, especially with where Price is right now. Chisora will pressure him relentlessly and hurt him to the head and most importantly to the body. People forget that Chisora works well to the body. Price…

[QUOTE=Enzo Mc is ****;13831273]I totally agree with this post, and also the posts saying that Price should avoid this fight like the plague. He needs to rebuild. This would be a very risky shortcut to take in his journey.[/QUOTE] I…
