LONDON — David Price’s hopes of returning to heavyweight relevancy may have been dashed for the last time. Last night, Price ran out of gas against a determined Christian Hammer and suffered the fourth stoppage loss of his career.

When there was any distance between them, the 6’8 Price was able to work the jab and target the body. But in close, the bullish Hammer would smash away with clubbing shots when Price tried to rest on the ropes.

Price’s best moment came in the fifth when he floored Hammer off a counter right uppercut. But Hammer recovered and Price exhausted his reserves midway through the sixth. Over the next two rounds, Hammer battered him on the ropes and eventually forced the ref to call off the bout.


You can watch David Price and see the talent. His size and offense are formidable when he’s on. But his flaws, suspect stamina and chin, are absolutely fatal in the heavyweight division. At 33 years old, I see no point in continuing unless Price is ok being a stepping stone for domestic UK prospects.
