David Price (15-2, 13 KOs) arrived in Stuttgart and weighed in ahead of his fight with Istvan Ruzsinsksy (12-9-1, 8 KOs) at the Hanns-Matrin-Schleyer-Halle on Saturday night.
‘’I am very happy to be here,’’ said Price. ‘’I have been looking forward to this day all week and I am glad it has finally come. Tomorrow, I get the chance to get back under the lights and do what I do best. ‘’
A failed medical check led to a late change of opponent for Price but the British heavyweight is not allowing this to effect his focus. ‘’Obviously I was a little disappointed when I first found out but these things are out of my control. I still need to get in, do a professional job and make sure I concentrate on what I have been working on in the gym.’’
Price tipped the scales at 112.8kg, his opponent Ruzsinsky will weigh-in later today.
