David Price: I Did What I Had To Do To Win!

David Price (18-2, 15 KOs) continued his comeback with a unanimous decision victory over Yaroslav Zavorotnyi (16-7, 14 KOs) at the Sport and Congress Center in Schwerin, Germany. After ten rounds of action the judges scored the fight 97-92, 98-92 and 100-90 in favour of the British heavyweight.
 
Price controlled the fight with his jab, while looking to unload his powerful right hand. Although Zavorotnyi proved a durable opponent he offered little in reply to Price’s dominance, resulting in a well-earned points victory for the 6ft 8’’ Liverpudlian.
 
‘’I was pleased with my performance,’’ said Price. ‘’It was great to get ten rounds in the bank. I’ve been a pro for five years but this was the first time I’ve gone ten rounds, so it was a good learning experience for me.
 
‘’Zavorotnyi was an awkward opponent. He kept his hands up, chin down and made himself difficult to hit. I may not have got the knockout but I stayed focused and did what I had to do to get the win.’’
 
Said promoter Kalle Sauerland: ‘’This was a great display from Pricey. He is really starting to show the improvements he has made in gym and during this rebuilding process. In terms of experience these ten rounds are like gold dust! We will be sitting down in the coming days to discuss whether we are ready to bring the big man home.’’

Price looked awful, again. His footwork is still poor; he doesn't throw his jab enough and with any conviction; and he looks ever so vulnerable. Its great that he got some rounds in, but it wasn't a good performance.

It's good that Price is getting some rounds at last, which is what he was short of when he fought T.T. One worries me after watching this though - Price had his jab in Zavorotnyi's face the whole 10 rounds…

These are the opponents Price should have been facing after 12-13 fights instead of facing guys like Skelton and Harrison.its a shame Maloney was so desperate to cut corners in progression with him. Look how Pulev had been brought along,that…
