David Price: I Would Love To Be on Amir Khan's Card

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID PRICE has set his sights on becoming the world heavyweight champion before the end of next year.

He brushed aside Sam Sexton with an impressive display to lift the vacant British and Commonwealth belt at Aintree racecourse last Saturday.

He sent his home city crowd wild with a victory inside four rounds and then targeted a world title tilt inside 18 months.

The Olympic bronze medallist said: “I am not in any rush, but if I keep developing, it could be within 18 months.

“Rushing is not my style. To get to world level and lose, then what would be the point? Where do you go then, back to British level with your stock lowered.”

The 6ft 8in Scouser was extremely impressive against Sexton as he extended his unbeaten record to 13-0.

He put Sexton down in the third with a slick combination of two quick jabs and a right hook.

He then rocked him with an uppercut in the fourth, before forcing him to take another eight count.

Price finished off a good night’s work by ending the fight in spectacular fashion, knocking out his gutsy opponent with a devastating short right hook.

His delighted promoter Frank Maloney claims he reminds him of his former golden boy Lennox Lewis.

Maloney said: “You’ve got to give him 10 out of 10 for that performance. That was the best jab I have seen in a British ring since Lennox Lewis.

“I’m more convinced than ever that he will be heavyweight champion of the world. And he will dominate boxing for a long time if he keeps developing the way he is.”

With Tyson Fury avoiding him and David Haye and Dereck Chisora meeting in July, Price has run out of domestic opponents.

He would love to make his United States debut on the undercard of Amir Khan’s next fight which is likely to be on July 7.

“I’d love to go on the Amir Khan undercard,” he added. “Hopefully we could sort something out and let the Americans see what I’m all about.”

[QUOTE=joe strong;12153637]let's see him fight fres oquendo, ray austin, michael grant or dom guinn.[/QUOTE] Sounds good. Guinn's very durable and would give him rounds. Grant would give him height and reach, he wouldn't tower over him like his other opponents.

I've heard Seth will fight on Khan's undercard I think David knows this and that would be great fight...but would GB want that fight?
