David Price: No Reason I Can't Bounce Back Like Charr, Win Title

Olympic bronze medal winner David Price is still hoping to fight for, and win, a world title.

Price (21-4, 18 KOs) will return to action on Saturday night in Brentwood, when he faces Kamil Sokolowski.

The bout will be Price's first since suffering another vicious knockout loss, ten months ago at the hands of Christian Hammer, who later this month will battle Alexander Povetkin in a WBO final eliminator.

Price has gone through a string of trainers and he is now working with Derry Mathews at George Vaughan's gym in Liverpool.

There are many in the industry that have called on Price, still only 34 years old, to retire.

But the Liverpool boxer was inspired a few days ago, after watching Manuel Charr topple Russian giant Alexander Ustinov for the vacant WBA "regular" title.

Charr, like Price, has suffered numerous setbacks - like vicious knockout defeats, injuries, hip replacements and he was even shot.

"I watched that fight and [Manuel] Charr's done well. He's come back from the brink really and if anything that's proof that you can come back. He's had a couple of bad defeats, bad knockout losses, and he's just kept persevering like I am, and he's got his reward in the end, so there is no reason why couldn't do something similar. It's a fight I would love to have the opportunity to take," Price told Sky Sports.

One possible fight in the near future for Price, is a domestic clash with David Allen. The fight was talked about before, and Price was not interested at the time - but he appears to be interested now.

"If I had won my last fight, I would have been in a position to fight for a world title, so justifiably I wasn't interested in fighting Dave Allen at that stage," Price said.

"Now I'm back down at that level, then yeah it's a fight that interests me. Any fight on the British scene is a fight that interests me."

If he gets a weak opponent like Ustinov in a world title fight, he could do it.

[QUOTE=TheCell8;18274874]Charr has that immigrant mentality though. Poor, hungry, looking for opportunity and fighting to survive. David Price's life is too comfortable. I doubt he needs to box. When things go bad for him he seems to quit.[/QUOTE] When things go…

Yes! You can do it Price!! Would love to see him fight the White Rhino after Sokolowski, that is a complete contrast in styles and abilities. Cornish is another guy I would enjoy seeing him in with. Earn yourself that…
