David Price is Promised Another Fight By Eddie Hearn

By Elliot Foster

Eddie Hearn has insisted that David Price will get another fight on a Matchroom show after his win last weekend.

The 36-year-old former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion beat David Allen at the O2 Arena in London.

Price won the fight after Allen, battered and bruised by the former Olympic bronze medallist, pulled out after 10 completed rounds, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and DAZN Stateside.

And Hearn, who has offered Price numerous lifelines in the past following defeats, now wants to give him a lucrative opportunity on the back of what was his third win on the bounce.

“Price schooled him,” Hearn said in the aftermath about the fight between the Scouser and the Doncaster man who is trained by Darren Barker. “It was a great performance and, actually, I feel a bit for David Price because everyone will be talking about either David Allen’s bad performance or the fact he was taken away on a stretcher.”

Allen, after being withdrawn from the contest, collapsed in the ring and was taken to hospital on a stretcher before later being released and reunited with ‘Pricey’.

Hearn continued: “Price’s performance deserves a lot of respect because he stuck behind the jab, hit [Allen] hard and often, he controlled the pace of the fight and you saw what it meant to him afterwards.

“That’s three domestic wins on the now and I’m not saying he’s going to go on and fight for a world title, but one thing Price will do is fight again.

“I don’t promote David Price but I’m fond of him and have been involved in his last eight fights and although I don’t have a contract with David Price, I kind of feel like his promoter, but he’s free to go where he wants.

“We pay him very well, I like him and I think he’s an exciting fighter who is gaining confidence. He’s still got the frailties and they will always make him exciting.”

he's more or less a Hearn fighter, just officially.

[QUOTE=Mammoth;19927629]Hrgovic goddammit............[/QUOTE] That'd only serve to do Pricey a lot of damage he doesn't need atm.

Lets be honest here, beating up Dave Allen is hardly worthy of a golden ticket for a big payday. Price needs to beat a lower level contender like Chisora, Hughie Fury or maybe even someone like Takam. As much as…
