British heavyweight David Price, who lost his unbeaten record to American Tony Thompson earlier this year, will now be trained by Adam Booth.
Price parted company with long time trainer Franny Smith soon after being defeated by Thompson and sees Booth as the ideal man to put his career back on track.
Speaking to Skysports news Price: "We did a few sessions together just to see how it would work, and he then agreed to train me. I was made up about that.
"To begin with I contacted a handful of world-class trainers and asked Adam if I could have a chat and perhaps get some advice," added Price, who is still British and Commonwealth champion.
"When I first turned pro I was signed by Hayemaker and only left because of the television situation at the time. Adam pointed me in the right direction after that - and advised me to go with Frank Maloney - and I’ve always valued his opinion.
"So, after a brief chat, I brought up the idea of him possibly training me and we decided to have a meeting. I assumed he wanted to see what kind of frame of mind I was in.
"We did a few sessions together just to see how it would work, and he then agreed to train me. I was made up about that because I know Adam is very selective when it comes to choosing fighters to work with.
"I’ve got a good feeling about this move, and truly believe Adam is the man to bring out my true potential."
