British heavyweight champion David Price is worried that he may be unable to win a Lonsdale belt outright because there is a lack of serious domestic rivals.
The 6ft 8in Liverpool puncher won the British heavyweight title last year by defeating Sam Sexton, and made quick fire defences against Audley Harrison and Matt Skelton.
Price,15-0, needs one more notch to own a Lonsdale belt outright, but there are currently no suitable active contenders.
The Liverpool boxer is now boxing at world class and meets American double world title challenger Tony Thompson (36-3) in a 12 rounder at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday 23rd February.
Price who is also Commonwealth title holder explained: “Winning a Lonsdale belt is not my priority but at the same time it would be a great honour to own one alongside other great fighters.
“I would not turn it down as long as we can get an opponent who would raise me to the challenge.
“It would have to be against a fighter who I believe is world level like Dereck Chisora or Tyson Fury.
“My friend, David Haye is about but he seems focused solely on getting a fight against Vitali Klitschko.
