Heavyweight David Price reckons has Portugal training camp has got him in the mood to hammer Matt Skelton. The undefeated Liverpool boxer makes the second defense of his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles against Skelton at Aintree Equestrian Centre on November 30th on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com.
Since beating Audley Harrison in 82 seconds last month, Price has been preparing at promoter Frank Maloney’s training camp in the Algarve. Price, 29, said: “I went to Portugal because the fight was so soon after the Audley Harrison bout. I needed a change of scenery because I was going straight back into camp. It has been refreshing and exactly what I needed. I have had some good sparring with Danny Price and John McDermott. I am more or less there and ready to do a number on Skelton. I only had a week off after the last fight so it was a case of maintaining what I had already done in the gym in the weeks previously.”
So far this year Price beaten John McDermott, Sam Sexton and Harrison with his three victims lasting just 13 minutes and 42 seconds between them – but Price still needs a break.
He explained: “I have trained for four 12 round fights this year which is god because I have been busy. Although the first three fights haven’t gone the distance the training camp takes it out of you and I will welcome a month off over Christmas.”
