David Price Hunts For New Opponent, Sean Turner is Out

By Elliot Foster

David Price is searching for a new opponent ahead of his return next month.

The former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion has been out of action since March.

Price was knocked out by Alexander Povetkin in a world title eliminator at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.


He was then meant to return on July 27 at the Premier Suite at the Macron Stadium in Bolton but a back injury suffered during fight week put paid to that.

The 35-year-old was matched up with Sean Turner on a card that features a whole host of MTK Global-managed fighters on October 5.

But the Irishman, who was set to come into the fight on the back of a defeat at the hands of Nathan Gorman back in June, has been ruled out of the fight at the Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast, exclusively live on BoxNation.

The news was first revealed by

And now Price, training with Joe McNally and John Gillies at the Four Corner Combat Gym in the city, is awaiting news regarding a new foe in due course from his management company.

The card, billed ‘Raise The Titanic’, is topped by Liverpool-trained super-bantamweight Tyrone McCullagh as he takes on English champion Josh Kennedy for the vacant WBO European title.

Meanwhile, Boxing Scene understands that it will soon be confirmed that Declan Geraghty is out of his fight against Marco McCullough on the bill.

Hearn hinted at his big Las Vegas date for November moving to December. If Joshua has it easy against Povetkin, I wonder if Joshua will squeeze a lucractive DAZN payday v Miller in December in US before the DAZN roster…
