David Price is still reeling from back-to-back losses to Tony Thompson this year, but with the big Liverpool heavyweight ready to return to the ring on December 14 in Germany, there's already talk of a potential big domestic fight on the horizon against streaking Dereck Chisora.
Chisora (19-4, 13 KO) stopped Ondrej Pala this past weekend, and after a 4-0 year, he says he's ready for anyone, but that if he were advising Price (who has an offer, reportedly), he'd tell him not to take the fight just yet.
"We'll see what David says when he brings the contracts back. If he signs it then we know if the fight is going to be on. But from my point of view I would tell him to run away. I would just tell him to run - go and do what you got to do on the other side - and when it's time, we'll fight.
"It's not the right time for him. He just needs to rebuild, rebuild, rebuild, start doing what he does best and then come back and when it's time, we'll fight."
Price (15-2, 13 KO) will take on veteran Evgeny Orlov (14-12-1, 10 KO), and on paper that's an "easy" bounce-back fight, but with the big man's confidence shaken and two stoppage losses in his rear view mirror, nothing should be totally overlooked at this stage.
