PRICE was dropped from the GB squad in the sum­mer, hav­ing been tipped as a real Olympic heavy­weight medal hope.

Af­ter be­ing axed, he im­me­di­ately signed for pro­moter Frank Maloney, who was rec­om­mended by David Price and Tony Jef­fries.

Price is des­per­ate to prove GB per­for­mance di­rec­tor Robert Mc­cracken wrong – back him to do just that. On his de­but he ham­mered Michal Tomko in 44 sec­onds and then beat vastly ex­pe­ri­enced Hast­ings Rasani

There is no doubt­ing his nat­u­ral tal­ent. Trainer Michael Mars­den and Maloney have great be­lief.
