Chisora To Now Face Price
When an opportunity came knocking at David Price’s door, he immediately answered it. The IBO Continental Heavyweight Champion will now be facing Dereck Chisora on October 26 in the O2 Arena in London.
Price will be replacing Joseph Parker, who had to pull out last week due to illness. The two will be fighting underneath the Josh Taylor v. Regis Prograis World Boxing Super Series final bout.

Price (25-5, 1NC) was set to appear on the Callum Smith v. John Ryder card next month but took the opportunity once he found his placement on the stacked card inside the O2 Arena. He is coming off of a round-ten stoppage victory in July against David Allen and is on a three-fight win streak.
Chisora (31-9) is on a two-fight win streak. His last bout was a second-round knockout win over Artur Szpilka. This will also be his sixth straight fight inside the O2 Arena.
