David Price has stepped in to face Dereck Chisora at Lon­don’s O2 Arena on Oct 26 fol­low­ing the with­drawal of Chisora’s orig­i­nal op­po­nent, Joseph Parker, due to ill­ness. Liver­pudlian Price had been pre­par­ing for an­other bout in his home city but jumped at the op­por­tu­nity to test him­self once again at the top level of the heavy­weight divi­sion. “Dereck is a great com­peti­tor and I’m sure he’ll bring the best out of me,” Price said last night. “I kept in the gym all sum­mer be­cause I had a feel­ing I had to be ready for a call like this, and ready I am.”
