David Price will take on unbeaten Russian Sergey Kuzmin for a WBA world ranking title on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs. Alexander Povetkin at Wembley on September 22.
Liverpool heavyweight Price (22-5-KO18) was last seen rocking Kuzmin’s compatriot Povetkin in Cardiff back in March before falling to defeat and is back on the big stage – live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Price said: “It’s just great. I got a huge buzz last time being part of such a big occasion. There’s nothing like the feeling of a big fight night and I’m excited to be part of another one.
“It’s all been late notice but I was training to fight in Belfast anyway. It means I’ll have to squeeze in my sparring as the fight is only 10 days away but I’ll come out all guns blazing on the night.
“Opportunity knocks again and I’m hoping to get some good support on the night. I was a massive underdog in the Povetkin fight. Kuzmin isn’t as well known but he’s serious and they plan to have me as just a name on his record.
“I’m a banana-skin for any undefeated prospect coming through. Going into this one I’m drawing on all the positivity of my experience last time and the fans’ reaction.
“People know when they come to watch me fight that it’s going to be exciting one way or another. This time, however, I’m confident it’s me who’ll come out on top. All I care about is getting in there and taking him out.”
