BoxingScene.com has been advised that a deal is in place for a battle of unbeaten heavyweights. Olympic bronze medal winner Deontay Wilder (25-0, 25KOs) will face Kelvin Price (13-0, 6KOs) in a Showtime televised fight at the Los Angeles Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. The card will be headlined by the return of Amir Khan, who faces Carlos Molina in a junior welterweight clash.
From what BoxingScene has learned, Golden Boy Promotions [who promote Wilder] has yet to receive a signed contract from DiBella Entertainment [on behalf of Price], but there is a verbal agreement between both sides and Price has accepted the fight. Price and Wilder were previously scheduled to fight in August, with Price pulling out due to injury.
