David Price Eyes Dereck Chisora Domestic Showdown

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID PRICE wants to defend his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles against bad boy Dereck Chisora.

Del boy’s British fight licence was withdrawn after a wild press conference brawl with David Haye back in February but he is expected to reapply next month.

Price, 29, who risks his titles against Matt Skelton at Aintree Equestrian Centre on Friday, said: “Dereck is a fight that interests me for the simple reason that he is a good fighter.

“After I get Skelton out of the way Dereck is the only one left at domestic level.

“There is David Haye, but it looks like a world title or nothing for him.”

Promoter Frank Maloney believes it could take place next spring at a football stadium but Price warned: “It would have to be on the grounds that I was defending my British title.

“I want to keep my Lonsdale belt so Dereck must get a British licence.”

Chisora hasn’t boxed since being stopped in five rounds by Haye in front of 30,000 fans at Upton Park in July when they held Luxembourg Boxing Federation licences.

AMIR KHAN’S younger brother Haroon, 21, will make his professional debut at Manchester Arena on January 19.
