Sauerland, the new promoters of British heavyweight David Price, have announced how the twice-beaten giant has officially vacated his British and Commonwealth titles. Therefore Price will not be meeting Dereck Chisora, the mandatory challenger for British heavyweight honours. A Price-Chisora clash had been mooted for some time next year, but Price’s promotional team have announced how their charge will instead “concentrate on rebuilding.”
The Sauerland Tweet reads as follows:
It will be interesting to see which two fighters will now meet to fight for the vacant British title. Now that a fight with Price is off (for the time being anyway) Chisora may well focus on getting either a return with Tyson Fury or a big money fight with unbeaten KO artist Deontay Wilder (see Del Boy’s letter to Wilder below in an earlier Fightnews article).
Price returns to action from his back-to-back losses to Tony Thompson on December 14th when he will face Evgeny Orlov in Germany.
