Today at 3 p.m. EST, live on Sky Sports from the United Kingdom, heavyweights David Price and John McDermott look to earn a shot at the British heavyweight championship currently held by Tyson Fury in the main event from Liverpool's Olympia.

Price (11-0, 9 KO) is a 28-year-old prospect, a towering 6'8" with terrific power and a more polished offensive game than the oft-compared Fury, who is younger, with less amateur experience, but seemingly a better chin. That is, as we have said leading up to this fight, the No. 1 concern for David Price today: If the worries over his chin are real, "Big Bad" John definitely has the thunder to put him down.

McDermott (26-7, 17 KO) isn't one of the most pleasant of fighters to look at, to say the least, but the chubby slugger can hold his own in a fight. Though he's lost four of his last five, he was very competitive in every one of those losses, including a decision nod that went to Fury on an absurd 98-92 score from referee Terry O'Connor back in September 2009. Many felt McDermott deserved that win. In his last bout, McDermott stopped Larry Olubamiwo in just 1:15, but that was nearly a year ago (February 2011).

There's no doubt David Price is the favorite -- I'm sure few are picking a McDermott upset. The real intrigue today comes from the fact that we're just one step away here from locking up a Fury vs Price fight, which is an intriguing matchup indeed.

Officials: Howard John Foster is your referee today, and scoring the fight will be Steve Gray, Phil Edwards, and the dreaded Dave Parris.
