Frank Maloney has issued a challenge for any British heavyweight to step into the ring and face David Price.
.
The Olympic bronze medallist will show off his talents when he boxes on the undercard to Sam Webb’s (16-1) British light-middleweight title defence against Martin Concepcion (17-7) at The Troxy, London E1 on Saturday (16th Oct).
.
Promoter Maloney said: “I will match David with any British heavyweight apart from David Haye.
.
“If I was offered a fight against Dereck Chisora I would take it in a heartbeat, and I fullyexpect David to win.
.
“People have been critical of David, but there will be no complaints about the opponent I am hoping he will face in January or February.
.
“The deal is being finalised and I hope to be able to announce it in the next couple of weeks.”
.
Liverpool’s Olympic bronze medallist (7-0) hopes to become the first man to stop Belarusian Raman Sukhaterin on The Troxy bill, and send a warning to his domestic rivals.
.
Sukhaterin, 35, has lasted the distance with Pele Reid and Henry Akinwande, and never been stopped in 21 fights.
.
Maloney added: “I am not going to name them, but a couple good British heavyweights turned down this job.
.
“One didn’t want to know and the other one fancied the fight, but wanted another contest first.
