WE know by now that big men and big names drive pay-per-view events and therefore it should come as no surprise that David Price has received the call to face Dereck Chisora on October 26 in London.

Six-foot-eight Price, who impressed against Dave Allen in July, will step in to replace Chisora’s original opponent, Joseph Parker, it was announced today.

He gets the chance because he always promises excitement, built around a me-or-him approach to the knockout, and because he has, like Chisora and Parker, become a staple of Sky Sports Box Office shows over the years. It’s a conveyor belt of well-known heavyweights these days and now it’s Price’s turn to again get involved.
