David Price defends the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles today against Audley Harrison.
Today at 2:30 pm ET on BoxNation (UK) and WealthTV (US), David Price defends the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles against Audley Harrison at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
The bout will be the first for Price on BoxNation, as promoter Frank Maloney has joined forces with old rival Frank Warren to give Price a regular home, now that Matchroom Boxing and Sky Sports have teamed up exclusively, and Hennessy Sports has their deal with Channel 5.
Price (13-0, 11 KO) has been a force as a pro thus far, and is expected to smash Harrison (28-5, 21 KO). Audley has talked the usual good game, but his last two fights have been rather awful, as he barely threw a punch against David Haye in November 2010, and didn't look near top form against Ali Adams in May of this year, though he did win that one.
Harrison, now 40, says that he'll retire if he loses, but as with every other boxer, retirement talk is to be taken with a grain of salt, no matter what happens today.
Jon Lewis Dickinson (11-2, 3 KO) will face Shane McPhilbin (8-3, 5 KO) for the vacant British cruiserweight title. McPhilbin is a barroom brawler type, equally fun and sloppy in the ring, but always with an effort.
Chris Edwards (17-14-3, 4 KO) has the British flyweight belt, and Kevin Satchell (8-0, 1 KO) has the Commonwealth flyweight belt, and they'll attempt to unify today. Edwards used to be better than his record, but after a six-round draw against a fighter who came in 1-26-2 in his last fight, maybe not anymore.
Adil Anwar (17-1, 7 KO) will face Dale Miles (13-1, 10 KO) in a British junior welterweight title eliminator.
