Dereck Chisora vs. David Price Going Down in 2013?

| by

British heavyweight champion David Price has suggested that he would embrace the chance to fight former British and Commonwealth champion Dereck Chisora in 2013.

Price, who is undefeated in 13 contests is looking to make the step up to world level over the next year and sees a showdown with the flammable Chisora as a potential match-up in the future.

The former Olympic medalist last fought in May when he destroyed Sam Sexton over four rounds at Aintree, and will fights against big names such as David Haye and Tyson Fury unlikely, Price may turn to Chisora.

“A fight with Chisora would create interest and if the fans wanted to see it, I’d be happy to take part” Price told the BBC.

Chisora, who is currently without a boxing licence after having his registration revoked by the British Boxing Board of Control in March has lost four of his last five fights and may have to consider a period of rehabilitation at domestic level before engaging the 29-year-old Price.

The Londoner lost an entertaining five round scrap against fomer WBA world champion David Haye on Saturday as Chisora suffered a first knockout of his career.
