David Price showed what heavyweight boxing is really about with an impressive second-round stoppage of former world title challenger Matt Skelton to retain his British and Commonwealth titles in Liverpool.

While former cricketer Andrew Flintoff's flirtation with professional boxing stole the headlines, Liverpudlian Price sought to enhance his growing reputation as a future world champion at Aintree Racecourse.

The 29-year-old Olympic bronze medalist followed impressive recent wins over the likes of John McDermott, Sam Sexton and Audley Harrison with a similarly destructive hammering of veteran Skelton.

The 45-year-old Bedford brawler, who came into the ring with a 28-6 (23 KOs) record, had been slated as an opponent but boasted a wealth of experience having fought Ruslan Chagaev for the WBA title four years ago.

But 6ft 8in Price (14-0, 12 KOs) was the overwhelming favourite as he looks to move onto European or world level in the next 12 months.

While he was expected to win - and win in style - Skelton was tipped to at least put up more of a fight than the champion's previous conquests.
