David Price's Sky TV Deal Depends on Sam Sexton Win
By Edward Chaykovsky
Heavyweight prospect David Price (12-0, 10KOs) has a lot on the line when he faces Sam Sexton (15-2, 6KOs) this coming Saturday for the vacant British title at the Aintree Equestrian Centre in Liverpool.
Not only is Price risking his undefeated record, but his televison deal with Sky Sports is likely on the line. Price has three fights remaining on present deal with Sky, and promoter Frank Maloney is currently negotiating an extension.
"I am still in negotiation with them but I don't kid myself. They will probably want to see how this show goes [on] Saturday. If David Price gets hit on the chin, I probably won't get a phone call," Maloney tells The Independent.
