David Price-Sam Sexton Heads To Liverpool on May 19

By Phil D. Jay

David Price (12-0, 10KOs) is set to gain home advantage for his upcoming battle with Sam Sexton (15-2, 6KOs) as the two heavyweights clash for the British title vacated by Tyson Fury on May 19th in Liverpool.

Frank Maloney took the purse bid last week and has moved swiftly to give his number one fighter a home bout as the unbeaten Olympian looks to win the Lonsdale belt in his 13th fight.

Sexton, 27, came through his last fight against Larry Olubamiwo on points after a nasty cut halted the bout in the fifth round and the Norwich man will challenge for the title a second time following a loss to Dereck Chisora in 2010.

28 year-old Price makes his American debut in Atlantic City on March 24th as he takes on Josue Blocus at the Resorts Hotel and Casino and Sexton may now plan a warm-up fight before his battles the undefeated Liverpudlian.
