David Price Will Help Solis Defeat Vitali Klitschko

DAVID PRICE is to spend two weeks with Odlanier Solis helping the Cuban prepare for his showdown against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko.

The 6ft 8in Olympic bronze medallist will fly to Germany to help Solis after his ten round Commonwealth title eliminator against South African Osborne Machimana (18-6-1) at Brentwood Centre on Saturday (February 5).

It is the second time the Liverpudlian has been called in to help a challenger prepare for the older Klitschko, havnh also spent time with Albert Sosnowski before he lost to Vitali last year.

Solis faces Klitschko in March and Price's promoter Frank Maloney said: “It is wonderful experience for David to be in such an environment.

“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.”

“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.”

Top of the Brentwood bill is a quality double title fight between British super-bantamweight champion Jason Booth (35-6) and Commonwealth king Jamie Arthur (18-4)

Another Maloney heavyweight hopeful Tom Dallas (12-0) is in action against durable German Werner Kreiskott (8-15-1) who recently went the distance with Martin Rogan

A super-flyweight contest sees recent British flyweight title challenge Ashley Sexton (9-0-1) box former British bantamweight title holder Martin Power (21-6)

Tickets for the show priced £30 and £55 are available from 0871 226 1508 and www.frankmaloney.com

Vitali fighting Another fighter- -With One-Punch Knockout Power, who's too overweight at the moment for it to matter.

Love how the headline tries to imply something that isn't really in the article itself.
