David Price, the British heavyweight boxer, fought professionally for over ten years, from 2009 to 2019. With a record of 25 wins, six losses, and one no-contest, Price had a career that was plagued by inconsistency but included notable victories over Audley Harrison, Matt Skelton, John Mcdermott, and other boxers in the UK.
Price's debut match on March 28, 2009, was against opponent David Ingleby. He secured an impressive third-round technical knockout (TKO) victory against Ingleby. He then went on to win 14 consecutive fights, which included 12 stoppages in a row. These early victories marked Price as a promising talent in the heavyweight division of British boxing.
Price's best performances in his professional career came from his fights against notable opponents. His first marquee fight came against Harrison, a former Olympic gold medalist and experienced heavyweight boxer. The match took place on October 13, 2012, and saw Price win unanimously after 12 rounds. This fight brought Price to the forefront of British boxing, and he was soon deemed a hot prospect for the heavyweight crown.
Another notable victory was against Ondřej Pála in October 2014, a boxer from the Czech Republic. Price knocked out Pála in the first round of the fight, establishing his power and strength in the division.
However, as Price faced better opponents, his record began to decline. His first-ever loss came against Tony Thompson in February 2013, after he was knocked out in the second round of the fight. Price's performance continued to suffer, and he experienced more crushing defeats via stoppage, including in fights against Christian Hammer, Erkan Teper, and Alexander Povetkin.
Price's last professional fight was against Derek Chisora in October 2019. He lost the bout via TKO in the fourth round. Since then, he has retired from professional boxing, ending his illustrious but inconsistent career.
Price's fighting style was marked by his power-punching, a trait that brought him many victories in his early career. His KO wins accounted for 20 of his total 25 victories, marking him as a heavy hitter in the ring. However, his susceptibility to KO losses proved his weakness in the ring.
In conclusion, David Price's professional boxing career was marked by both high points and lows. He had an impressive KO record and notable victories over experienced opponents in the division. But his inconsistency and vulnerability proved to be his downfall as he continued to face tougher competitions in his career. Despite his weaknesses, Price's contributions to the British heavyweight division cannot be overlooked, and he will always be remembered as a powerful and talented fighter.
