Reading Time: 2 minutes

David Price (22-4, 18 KOs) faces Alexander Povetkin this Saturday and he is out to prove a point, Price would love nothing more than to prove his critics wrong and show that he has what it takes to operate at this level. His once promising career was shattered to pieces after back to back defeats against veteran Tony Thompson a few years back. This will be Price’s last roll of the dice and should he lose, that will be it for him.

The Liverpudlian heavyweight comes in as the underdog for this fight against the former WBA world heavyweight champion, Price can propel himself back into title contention should he get past Alexander Povetkin (33-1, 23 KOs). A potential title shot against IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua could await the winner should Joshua defeat Parker, Price and Povetkin are fighting on the undercard of Joshua vs. Joseph Parker Live on Saturday night on Sky Box Office at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

The lovable Liverpudlian was last seen in action on a small-hall show in Essex last December, while Alexander Povetkin who is currently the mandatory challenger to Joshua, enters this fight with a record of 33 wins and 1 loss in a points defeat against Wladimir Klitchsko back in 2013. David Price will know that he is up against one of the best fighters in the world. The former British & Commonwealth champion will need to start well since Alexander Povetkin will look apply pressure early and look for the knockout.

“Everyone is going off reputation,” Price said. “Reputation is going to go out of the window on the night, because I’m not going to be scared of him.

“I’m not going to be gun-shy. I’m going in there to cause an upset and the reputation side of things doesn’t bother me.”

The Russian is a better fighter and he is looking in much better condition than David Price, although Povetkin is the better boxer, Price always carries that punchers chance should he get in position to detonate. He insists that he is not here just to make up the numbers.

“I don’t care how I win. The fight might surprise people and go the distance,” Price said.

”I’m ready to do that if needs be. Most people think it’s going to be me on the receiving of a big knockout but big upsets happen in sports and that’s what I’m there to cause.”

Although Price would not go into details of revealing his sparring partners, he has returned from his training camp in Germany will a lot of confidence and feels he has the power to do the job.

 “I believe I’ve got the power to knock any heavyweight out,” said Price. “It’s just about landing the shot, and he falls into that category.”

Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn't the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy...
