David Price-Ondrej Pala, Andy Lee on 4/12 in Denmark
British heavyweight David Price (16-2, 14 KOs) will face Ondrej Pala (33-4, 23 KOs) on April 12th in Denmark.
The fight originally scheduled for March 29th in Berlin has been moved to Team Sauerland's Nordic Fight Night show at the Blue Water Dokken in Esbjerg, Denmark. Despite the change of date and location, Price remains confident of securing the victory over his Czech opponent.
‘’This is exactly the type of fight I need,’’ said Price. ‘’Pala is a guy who isn’t afraid to come forward and trade. I am looking forward to getting in there with him and exchanging blows. I’m in great shape and I am confident that I am going to get the job done.’’
In addition, middleweight contender Andy Lee (31-2, 22 KOs) will also be in action against an as yet unnamed opponent, while in the main event Swedish light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (19-0, 10 KOs) will defend his EU title against former Italian champion Danilo D’Agata (12-1-1, 3 KOs).
The show will be shown live on Box Nation in the UK and Viasat channels across Scandinavia. Fans travelling from the UK can fly to Billund or take the ferry direct to Esbjerg from Harwich. Tickets are available via billetten.dk.
