David Price-Matt Skelton Finalized For November 30

DAVID PRICE will make the second defence of his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles against Matt Skelton at Aintree racecourse on Friday, 30th of November.

The 6ft 8in scouser is still basking in the glory of his stunning first round KO of Audley Harrison nine days ago that sent shock waves through the heavyweight division.

Former British, Commonwealth and European champion Skelton boxed on the same bill in Liverpool stopping Croatian Jakov Gospic in two rounds.

The bill will be screened live on television by the home of boxing BoxNation, who have signed a multi-fight deal with Price (14-0).

Unbeaten Price, 29, said: "Matt was on stand-by in case Audley pulled out. He went through with his part of the deal so we'll go through with ours.

"I am aware he is 45, but he has won major championships and challenged for the world title.

"I have only boxed 14 times as a professional and still learning and Matt will bring something new for me."

Bedford’s Skelton (28-6) challenged Ruslan Chagaev for the WBA crown in January 2008 but lost on points.

Later that year he captured the European championship forcing Paolo Vidoz to retire on his stool after nine rounds, but never defended that title.

He has won a Lonsdale belt outright and other good names he has beaten include Julius Francis, John McDermott, Michael Sprott and Danny Williams.

The full undercard for the bill will be announced in the next ten days.

But, it will include Darren Hamilton's British light-welterweight title defence against local boxer Steve Williams but and a vacant English heavyweight title fight between John McDermott and Dillian Whyte.

Tickets are priced at £40, £60, £70, £95 and £190 (VIP) and are now on sale from www.frankmaloney.com .  Further outlets will be announced in the coming days.

[QUOTE=Brickfist;12628146]You cant say Fury is fighting a nobody because his opponent hasn't been announced yet. Fury fought an undefeated Chisora in his fifteenth fight, that's quite a difference in terms of development from Matt ****ing Skelton. Also fury fought John…
