LIVERPOOL HEAVYWEIGHT AND former Olympic bronze medallist David Price will face Dereck Chisora at the O2 Arena, London, on 26 October after Joseph Parker was forced to withdraw through illness.

Kiwi Parker fell unwell last week after being bitten by a spider, per his promoter David Higgins.

Chisora [31-9, 22KOs] will now face the towering Price [26-6, 20KOs] in an all-British heavyweight contest which will be chief support to Josh Taylor’s World Boxing Super Series light-welterweight final against Regis Prograis.

Price, a year Chisora’s senior at 36, stopped popular Doncastrian Dave Allen in 10 rounds at the same arena in July.

The amicable giant is on a three-fight win streak since suffering consecutive inside-the-distance defeats to Alexander Povetkin and Sergey Kuzmin last year.

Chisora has earned creditable wins over Senad Gashi and Arthur Szpilka since his stoppage defeat to Dillian Whyte in a humdinger last December.
