David Price-Sam Sexton Ordered By Board For Fury's Title

David Price is expected to battle Sam Sexton for the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles after Tyson Fury vacated the belts.

Price was next in line to face Fury following his recent first round demolition of John McDermott, but the 23-year-old has decided to pursue a world title shot rather than battle his domestic rival.

Sexton has now been handed a shot against Price for the vacant belts and the Norwich fighter will hope to seize his second bid for the British title after falling short against Dereck Chisora in 2010.

He has previously held the Commonwealth title and Sexton, with a record of 15 wins and only two defeats, should prove Price's sternest test to date.

Simon Block, the Commonwealth Boxing Council honorary secretary, said: "The British Boxing Board of Control yesterday determined that Price box Sam Sexton for their national title, also vacated by Fury, and Sexton is a named challenger on the list of contenders issued by the CBC on 8th December.

"This match, subject to compliance with CBC Regulations, will also be recognized as being for our title."

Sexton's best weapon is his jab, Price is going to totally negate that and stop him in a few rounds. Good fight, but he needs to put in with durable competition.

Decent fight, better than Fury vs Price in my opinion.
