David Price does not want to ‘cash out yet’ as the British heavyweight intends to defy his doubters by taking another step towards a world title fight.
The Merseysider will be targeting his fourth successive win on the Callum Smith-John Ryder bill in Liverpool on November 23, live on Sky Sports, with an opponent to be confirmed for Price.
After his dominant stoppage win over David Allen in July, Price admits he was tempted to pursue one final lucrative fight, but the 36-year-old still believes his greatest achievement lies ahead in his dramatic career.
Price said: “Initially after the fight, I was like ‘right, I can get a big fight now and cash out’. But then, after a week or so, I was like, it’s not the time to cash out yet. If I can play my cards right, and continue to perform, I can go further but not only that, it adds to the story which is already quite interesting.
“I could sit down with anyone and tell them the story of my career. I’ve had some ups and downs. I’ve had interesting things happen to me. You could write a book about it, but now I’m glad I’ve got the opportunity to fight on the Matchroom show, live on Sky Sports.
“The people seem to be getting behind me again, and yeah, just onwards and upwards.”
