David Price offers himself as ‘easy’ comeback fight for Klitschko

David Price has put himself forward as a potential opponent for Wladimir Klitschko’s reported comeback.

 

The British heavyweight was speaking in reaction to currently unconfirmed reports from Ukraine, which suggest the former long-reigning heavyweight champion is soon to return.

 

‘Sport Arena’ claim ‘Dr Steelhammer’ has agreed a $120million three-fight deal with DAZN and will be back on May 25 at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine.

 

They say the man who will be standing in the opposite corner is as yet unknown.

 

When asked by H&J on talkSPORT about Klitschko’s need for an opponent, Price stated enthusiastically: “I’d love that, that’d be great, wouldn’t it?

 

“Look, I’m world famous now, aren’t I? Because of the bite!

 

“You know, he’s probably looking for a bit of an easy one to come back Wladimir, so I’d definitely love the opportunity for that.”

 

David Price returned to action with a bizarre disqualification win on Saturday night as he was bitten several times by opponent Kash Ali.

 

Klitschko, meanwhile, has not fought since April 2017, when he was beaten by Anthony Joshua at Wembley.

 

“It’s exciting,” Price continued, “It’s great for the division, because in his fight with Anthony Joshua two years ago, he still looked really good I thought.

 

“He’s gonna come back and have something to say in the top end of the division for sure.”
