David Price became British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion last night after brushing aside Sam Sexton with a fourth round knock-out.
Fighting at Aintree, in his home-town of Liverpool, Price secured his 13th career win to keep his record as an unbeaten fighter intact. Already impressing at amateur level with medals at the Olympics and Commonwealth games, the 28-year-old showed why he has been touted as a future world champion, with talks of a fight against either of the supreme Klitschko’s next year.
He possesses all the capabilities of a top class fighter, and the contest against Sexton allowed him to demonstrate more of his aptitudes. A dominant jab kept his Norwich opponent pinned back and the use of fast combinations and switching to the body saw him put in a flawless display.
