With the unbeaten American heavyweight sensation, Deontay Wilder, hoping that he can get into the ring with the current WBC champion Bermane Stiverne, in November, one of Britain?s leading heavyweights reckons the challenger will come unstuck.

David Price, currently side-lined after surgery on a damaged hand, is on the comeback trail after two knockout defeats at the hands of Tony Thompson and having tasted defeat himself he reckons Wilder, who has won all 31 of his fights by knockout, is about to taste the pain of defeat.

Speaking on Sky Sports excellentRingside programme, Price had this to say about the forthcoming fight that could herald the rebirth of the heavyweight division in the USA,

?Stiverne?s a good fighter. He deserves to be the WBC champion, and I fancy him to beat Deontay Wilder.?

?But his [Stiverne] would suit David [Haye]. He?s [Deontay] obviously a big puncher. He is improving just like I was when I had my first defeat, and I feel that could happen to him. It?s happened to every heavyweight at some point in time, and I think it will happen to him. Who?s going to do it? I think Stiverne.?

We?ll see David, we?ll see, but if the fight goes ahead I reckon you?ll be proven wrong!
