David Price (19-2, 16 KOs) and Erkan Teper (14-0, 9 KOs) took to the scales today ahead of their European Heavyweight title fight on Friday night at the MHP Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
Price, who tipped the scales at 113.1kg (249.3-pounds, 17st 11lbs 1oz), looked in fine form as he attempts to wrestle the vacant European crown from the undefeated Teper, weighing in at 114.3kg (251.9-pounds, 17st 13lbs 9oz), tomorrow night.
‘’I feel great,’’ said the former British and Commonwealth Champion. ‘’I’m calm, collected and ready to go. This is a good weight for me. I’ve come in a little lighter than my last fight, but I’ve had a longer camp so that’s to be expected. I honestly believe I’m in the best shape of my career.
‘’Now I just want to get in there and get the job done. I’m not worried about Teper, I just need to concentrate on what I’m doing. He’s a good boxer, he’s undefeated and has some decent wins on his record, but he’s never fought anyone like me. Mentally and physically, I couldn’t be better prepared. I’m 100% confident and ready to bring the belt home!’’
