Heavyweight David Price (17-2, 15 KOs) came off the deck to score a third round KO over Onrej Pala (33-5, 23 KOs) on Saturday night in Esbjerg, Denmark. Pala dropped the 6’8 Price in round one with a looping left hook behind the ear. The British heavyweight was straight back on his feet and able to compose himself in the second before unleashing some devastating right hands in the third to twice send Pala crashing to the canvas and unable to continue. Time was :33.

Middleweight contender Andy Lee (32-2, 22 KOs) was lucky to escape with a razor-thin eight round majority decision over unheralded Frank Haroche Horta (34-13-5, 13 KOs). Scores were 77-76, 77-76, 76-76.

Unbeaten light heavyweight Erik Skogland (20-0, 11 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over Danilo D’Agata (12-2-1, 3 KOs).
