DAVID PRICE can take a massive step towards a world title tilt when he meets Sam Sexton in Liverpool tonight.

The 6ft 8in Scouser bids to win the vacant British heavyweight title at Aintree racecourse to hammer home his world heavyweight claims.

Price, 28, won Olympic bronze in Beijing four years ago and is being tipped for world title glory within two years.

He is managed by Frank Maloney, who guided Lennox Lewis to the top and Price wants to follow suit.

But he is refusing to count any chickens and said: I dont want to look past anyone because I dont want to have any regrets.

If I was to look past Sam and get beaten, I simply wouldnt forgive myself. This is too important for that.

You only get one crack at the whip in this game and I have just got to make sure I do it right.

Price added: Its going to be my most difficult fight since turning pro. Hes the best opponent Ive faced.

Ex-Commonwealth champ Sexton, 27, has lost just twice both times to Dereck Chisora in 17 contests.

Price said: Sams strengths are probably his speed of both hand and foot, and he is also a very good technical boxer.

I know what Sams about and I dont take too much from his other performances.

I dont think hes fought anyone like me so theres no point reading too much into them.

Price has won all 12 of his fights as a pro and claims he will become world champion by his 20th fight.

It is certainly bold talking but he insists he is not putting an extra burden on himself in terms of his ambitions.

He said: Ive got the same pressures as any other person in the world whos got a family and has to go out and earn some money.

Im no different from a fella who has to get up and lay bricks for a living. Weve both got to go and perform.

PREDICTION: It really will be a tough one for Price but I am taking the Scouser to end it all around the sixth.

Sexton is the bridge between Dallas, McDermott etc and the likes of Chisora and Fury. It's a good test. Price will win easily, then he needs to try for Fury (lol) or Chisora. After that it needs to be world level gatekeepers.

Price will destroy him I think .Tbh I think he's just a bigger better more powerrfull all round athlete than the rest of the UK heavyweights .Olympic bronze I think Price can go on to be a world beater .

comment by joe strong, on 05-19-2012
sexton lost to chisora twice & didn't exactly light it up vs rogan. sexton is a C+ fighter but i think price has the goods to be more. i want to see how price's chin holds up when he actually gets hit. i was hoping raphael butler would test it but he did get the chance too. price should win but i...

price will destroy sexton, just look at how rubbish sexton was against rogan, and to be fair rogan is a journey fighter/punchbag/taxi driver
