Wach Says He Really Needs David Price For Klitschko
By Luke Furman
Polish giant Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15KOs), near 6'8, is still trying to secure the sparring services of unbeaten Brit David Price (13-0, 11KOs). Last week we reported that Wach was hoping to secure both Price and Tyson Fury (19-0, 14KOs) to prepare him for the biggest fight of his unbeaten career - against Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51KOs) for the WBA/IBF/IBO/WBO titles on November 10th at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany.
Wach says discussions are still ongoing to grab Price, but the time schedule is starting to squeeze down because the British fighter is going to return on October 13th against Audley Harrison.
"My sparring partners have to be like Wladimir Klitschko [in terms of] the size and style. And one boxer [to fit that bill] is Englishman David Price. He could be one of my main sparring partners, although he is scheduled to fight [on October 13]. Negotiations are continuing with him. It is hard to get three or four sparring partners together, but we're trying to do it. I think we will succeed," Wach said.

Wait, so if Wach somehow does manage to tab Price as a sparring partner, could that mean Price and Fury bumping into each other during those sessions? Hmm... :sneak1:Comment by Hayehammer on 10-01-2012

I don't blame Wach for wanting Price as a sparring partner. It's hard to find guys big enough to even resemble either Klitschko.Comment by boxingchef on 10-01-2012
