Matchroom have added yet another fight to the MASSIVE Joshua v Povetkin card at Wembley Stadium on Sept 22 with the scouser David Price 22-5, 18 KO’s coming back to face unbeaten Russian Sergey Kuzmin 12-0, 9 KO’s.
Last time out 35yo PRICE was stopped in Cardiff by tonight’s top of the bill oppo Povetkin and tonight looks to re-build his career yet again, but after 5 big losses on his record even Price must know a loss to 31yo Kuzmin must signal the end of his career.
“It’s all been late notice but I was training to fight in Belfast anyway,” Price told DAILY SPORT Boxing. “It means I’ll have to squeeze in my sparring as the fight is only nine days away but I’ll come out all guns blazing on the night.
“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.
“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.”
So fight fans get ready for a tear up next Saturday at Wembley.
