Price counting on destroying McDermott on Nov 19th; Bute vs. Johnson on Saturday

David Price has stated his showdown with Big Bad John McDermott as his hardest fight to date and knows there will be no room for mistakes if he is to go onto the next level.

"No disrespect to John, but he has had his chance on more than one occasion, and has always ended up second best and I intend to keep it that way come Saturday night in Liverpool"

“John is one of the most talented fighters in Europe and the unluckiest having been on the wrong end of a few decision. But come Saturday 19th November no mistakes will be made and there will be no need for judges” says David Price

Promoter Frank Maloney who looks after both fighters expects this to be another heavyweight classic as both men are putting everything on the line!

McDermott says “David has never met a fighter like me and I am going to take him into the trenches and give him the fight of his life and I promise all my fans I will come out triumphant”

David has had 11 fights 11 wins 9 by stoppage and only twice has he been taken the distance but won every round with a staggering 82% KO record.

John Mcdermott has been in with the elite of UK heavyweights, boxed 33 times 26 wins 17 by KO with only 7 loses. He has boxed 145 rounds compared to the 31 rounds David has boxed.

Chief support to the main event will be for the English Super Flyweight Title between John Donnelly and Martin Power.

Askin wants British cruiserweight champion Leon Williams next

MATTY ASKIN is in a rush to challenge new British cruiserweight champion Leon Williams.

The unbeaten Blackpool star has hammered Williams verbally after watching his rival take the title from Robert Norton last month.

Askin, 22, will send a message to Britain’s cruiser bruisers when he boxes a non-title ten rounder against Czech star Roman Kracic at Oldham Sport Centre on Saturday November 12.

Matty who stands 6ft 4in tall and won all 11 professional fights promised: “I will beat Williams inside the distance if he dare face me.

“The Norton fight was a shocker, but Williams still didn’t do enough to win. I thought he was pathetic.”

Askin makes the three hour round trip daily from his hometown to Hatton Health and Fitness in Hyde when he trains under Bob Shannon.

Hatton Promotions chief Ricky Hatton regularly watches his sessions and added: “The cruiserweight division is wide open at domestic, European and world level.

“In time, Matty will reach the highest level but I certainly envisage a British title fight next year.

“There are a lot of fighters who will fancy their chances against Leon, and Matty should certainly be considered in any eliminators that are arranged.”

Kracic has won 33 of his 41 contests.

Denton Vassell tops the Oldham bill that is being televised live by Sky Sports when he makes the second defence of his Commonwealth welterweight crown against Cameroon born Australian Samuel Colomban.

The bill will also include former Kieran Farrell, Jazza Dickens, Dezzie Higginson, Adam Little and Kieran Maher.

Boxing starts at 6.15pm and tickets priced at £35, £55 and £75 VIP ringside. You can buy by calling 01925 755 222, Ticketmaster 0844 847 2500, Ticketline 0844 888 9991 or online www.hattonboxing.com
