Maloney: I'm Confident David Price Will Redeem Himself

David Price has returned from his Canadian training camp and is convinced he's back on track to become world heavyweight champion.

The 6ft 8in scouse powerhouse and his trainer Franny Smith have spent three weeks in Canada working with former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and conditioner Courtney Shand.

Price believes he's  bang on course to get revenge over Tony Thompson when they clash in a return 12 rounder at Liverpool's Echo Arena on Saturday July 6.

The veteran Washington DC southpaw stunned the boxing world when he KO'd Price in two rounds in February.

Price who is now training again in familiar surroundings at Salisbury ABC in his home city  said: "I'm learning all the time from Lennox.

"Courtney is pushing me beyond what I thought I was capable of and I'm preparing for the fight of my life.

"I'm ready to win it and get right back in the mix."

Lewis will fly into Britain for the final ten days ahead of the big fight that will be screened live on BoxNation.

Price's promoter Frank Maloney added: "David's confidence is soaring and I am confident he will redeem himself."

Also on the big bill, Darren Hamilton defends his British light-welterweight title against Adil Anwar.

A second title fight will be announced later this week with further undercard news.

Tickets priced £180 (VIP including private bar), £100, £80, £50, £35 can be obtained from the. Box Office 08448000400 and
