Price Alright On The Night?

Price Is Fighting More Than Alexander Povetkin On Saturday Night, He's Fighting To Save His Career.

By

The final stop of the march of the heavyweights is nearly upon us. No doubt you all saw the press conference yesterday afternoon of both heavyweight champions looking supremely cool before the biggest fight of their lives.

But there is a fight on the undercard which is perhaps not getting its fair share of attention. Which frankly surprises me because the winner of this fight could well be next in line for a shot at the winner of the main event, perhaps not next. But certainly in the future.

Alexander Povetkin holds both WBA and WBO mandatory spots and is in a prime albeit not pole position to be an option for either Anthony Joshua or Joseph Parker result depending of course.

This Saturday night he takes on David Price, a man whose career once promised so much. Whilst it is fair to say that Price has not lived up to the hype which saw him named ESPN’s ‘Prospect of the Year’ in 2012. The Liverpudlian has the chance to put all of that right under the lights in Cardiff in four days’ time.

David is an old hat as a pro, I can scarcely believe he has been a professional for nearly a decade. Time really does fly. As a heavyweight boxer, David Price has all the tools you’d think would make him successful. A great amateur pedigree saw him win bronze in Beijing at the Olympics, which saw him add to the Commonwealth gold he had won two years prior. He stands at an enormous six foot nine, weighs close to two hundred and ninety pounds come fight night and has a right hand that when it lands, hits you hard enough for your ancestors to feel it! But like anybody, and I do mean anybody. David appears to have one weakness.

Sadly that weakness is a huge chink in the armour. For to be successful in the great sport of boxing, and I apologise because this really is a cheesy cliché. But a fictional character once told me ‘it’s not about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward’. Whilst Sylvester Stallone isn’t, nor has he ever been a professional boxer, he has a point. Your chin is your shield. You can have the best head movement in the world, but you will get caught. Just ask Floyd Mayweather. Sadly Price’s chin has been his downfall, having been knocked out four times. However, two of those knockouts came at the hands of boxers who couldn’t play by the rules and tested dirty for performance enhancers. Tony Thompson tested positive after his second fight with Price and of course, Erkan Teper knocked Price out cold in July 2015. But Teper too did not enter that fight clean, and the fight was ruled a no contest.

His opponent this Saturday night is no stranger to controversy too. Stories of Povetkin’s failed tests are well traveled. A failed test for meldonium had WBC Champion, Deontay Wilder hopping straight back on a plane to Alabama in the days leading up to their scheduled bout. Then, just seven months later. Povetkin tested positive for ostarine, a muscle builder no less before his scheduled bout with Bermaine Stiverne. Leading to the WBC suspending him indefinitely, although he has since been reinstated.

There would be no shame in losing to a clean Povetkin. He is in my honest opinion on the best boxers in the heavyweight division fundamentally. This is Price’s toughest test by far. But he appears to have embraced his underdog status, and on his night Price possesses the power to rock any heavyweight on the planet. But surely this is his last chance at the big table before he is relegated to gatekeeper status.

Price had this to say to Sky Sports “One thing I've never really liked to use as motivation was to prove people wrong because I didn't think it was worth the energy of even considering doubters".

"But any motivation is good motivation and I would love to take my glove off and put two fingers up to everyone who has ever written me off, and demand an apology.

"I've got a big task in front of me, but I'm going to give it everything."
