David Price vs. Tony Thompson on February 23rd at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England
DAVID PRICE will box world class American Tony Thompson at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday 23rd February 2012 in a 12 round international heavyweight contest.
The two-time world title challenger represents the biggest professional test so far for the emerging British star.
British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Price (15-0) has had a magnificent 2012 winning his titles and knocking out all four opponents.
It is a return to the 8,000 capacity venue where Price beat Audley Harrison inside a round two months ago.
Price, 29, is now ranked 9th in world by the WBC and rapidly closing in on the heavyweight divisions big guns, Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko.
Southpaw Thompson (36-3) brings a wealth of experience and has knocked out 24 of his opponents.
Two of his defeats came against Wladimir Klitschko in world titles challenges. Back in July 2008 he lost in 11 rounds and earlier this year was beaten in six.
Price’s promoter Frank Maloney: “This is the right fight at the right time for David and one where a win will propel him even higher.
“Thompson still has ambition and I am certain that he will come to win and score a major upset.”
Thompson is ranked 10th in the IBF world rankings.
In the chief supporting bout, another Liverpool boxer Kevin Satchell (9-0) will defend his British and Commonwealth flyweight titles against Belfast’s Luke Wilton (13-2-1).
Top British light-welterweight contender Adil Anwar (18-1) will box a ten rounder against a selected opponent.
Tickets can be purchased £230 (VIP including meal and inner ringside seat), £95 (Ringside), £70 and £40 at www.echoarena.comwww.frankmaloney.com or 0844 8000 400.
