David Price To Make United States Debut on Wach vs Fields

By Ruslan Chikov

Negotiations are nearly complete for the American debut of British heavyweight David Price (12-0, 10 KOs). Price will appear on March 24th, in Atlantic City, on a big show being staged with the joint partnership of Global Boxing Promotions, Frank Maloney Promotions and 12 Round Knockout Promotions. This is the first of three shows to be co-promoted by these three groups.

In the main event, Polish giant Mariusz Wach (29-0, 14 KOs) will face an even bigger man,  Canadian Tye Fields (49-4, 44 KOs) for the WBC's International title.

Price (12-0, 10 KOs) will step into the ring against Josue Blocus (16-2, 14 KOs).

In an eight round bout, Przemyslaw Majewski (17-1, 11 KOs) will step into the ring. And heavyweight prospect Artur Szpilka (9-0, 7 KOs) will see action in a six round bout.

Vallily and Joshua are likely to both end up as cruiserwieghts when they turn pro, rather than cannon fodder for the 6 foot 6 ers.
