David Price Heads Out To Germany To Spar With Solis

British heavyweight David Price has been drafted in for sparring with Odlanier Solis ahead of the Cuban exile's heavyweight title shot.

The undefeated Solis will take on WBC champion Vitali Klitschko in Cologne on March 19 as he becomes the latest to bid to break the Klitschkos' stranglehold on the division.

Price, an Olympic bronze medallist in Beijing, stands 6ft 8in tall and is of a similar stature to the elder Klitschko.

And promoter Frank Maloney believes the time is right for the Liverpudlian to test his skills against the best in the division.

"It is wonderful experience for David to be in such an environment," said Maloney.

"He can also gauge how far he is from that level when he gets rounds with these type of fighters.

"It will be interesting to see what opinion he forms of Solis because a lot of people believe he is the man to break their monopoly."

Maloney reiterated his belief that Price is the man to succeed the Klitschkos as the world's best heavyweight.

"The Klitschkos might not be the greatest to watch, but they are effective and David is the nearest thing we have to them.

"It is only a matter of time before he is like the Klitschko brothers and the most dominant force in the heavyweight division."

[QUOTE=Freedom!;10069071]I think Price will do better than Fury, if he's managed correctly. Fury lacks real athleticism. Price has some skills and decent athleticism, but [B]he needs pro experience[/B]. If I were his promoter, I'd keep him very active during the…
