David Price ill, fight with Evengy Orlov postponed

A virus picked up in training camp has forced David Price (15-2, 13 KOs) to postpone his December 14 scheduled bout with Evengy Orlov (14-12-1, 10 KOs).

‘’It is unfortunate but these things happen and one has to act responsibly,‘’ said promoter Kalle Sauerland. ‘This is a minor set back and has no effect on our plans for Pricey. He will be back in the ring at the beginning of the New Year.’’

‘’Obviously I am disappointed,’’ said Price. ‘’I was looking forward to my first fight back but I wouldn’t be doing myself or my fans justice by taking the fight when I am anything less than 100%.’’

Despite the news, boxing fans still have a stacked bill to look forward to on December 14 in Neubrandenberg. Headlined by Juergen Braehmer (41-2, 31 KOs), who faces Marcus Oliveira (25-0-1, 20 KOs) for the vacant WBA World Light Heavyweight title, the show also features IBF mandatory Heavyweight challenger Kubrat Pulev (18-0, 9 KOs) and WBA Intercontinental Champion Jack Culcay (15-1, 10 KOs).

The date and location of Price’s rescheduled bout will be announced shortly.
