19/05/12 Price v Sexton
As we duck and dive our way through all the controversy of British Heavyweight Boxing we stumble across what has the potential to be a great fight. With what could offer a future World Heavyweight contender, 12-0 David Price looks to fill the mould of Tyson fury and claim victory to the British and Commonwealth belts. But in order to do this he will have to take on 15-2 Sam Sexton, who himself believes he has what it takes to stop Price's unbeaten run since turning pro in 2008. Price goes into this fight the considerable favorite, offering a taller stance and longer reach and proving his knockout power against fellow heavyweight John Mcdermott in his last encounter. Sexton himself held the Commonwealth title for a year and a half untill losing it to Chisora who ultimatly lost it to Fury, so sexton is no stranger to a big fight and he has said himself he will let his fists do the talking on saturday night. Lets hope the media can look through the midst of the Haye v Chisora Build-up and recongnise another two British fighters who are at the top of thier game.I myself have Price down to win and looks like he offers to much for Sexton to handle and i can definatly see a KO punch from the Merseysider.
