According to BoxingScene.com, undefeated British heavyweight prospect David Price will indeed be making his American ring debut on March 24 in Atlantic City.
The 28-year-old Price (12-0, 10 KO) is coming off of a one-round blasting of veteran John McDermott on January 21, a win that set him up as the mandatory challenger to Tyson Fury's British championship.
He'll be matched with Josue Blocus, a 42-year-old born in France and now living in Atlanta. Blocus (16-2, 14 KO) hasn't fought since October 2010. The night's main event is scheduled to be a battle of giants, as 6'7" Mariusz Wach (26-0, 14 KO) will take on 6'9" Tye Fields (49-4, 44 KO). Fields was recently turned down as a replacement opponent for Siarhei Liakhovich on the NBC Sports Fight Night series premiere, as promoter Kathy Duva recalled that Tye Fields had been "everything wrong" with the last boxing series on that network, when it was called Versus.
Unless GFL or some other small carrier picks up the March 24 show in Atlantic City, it will not be televised. So if you're wondering if this fight (if it happens) will truly expose Price to an American audience, the answer is no.
