David Price will return to Liverpool next month to fight in his home city for the first time in two years. He will fight for the European title since defeat to Tony Thompson in 2013. Price will face against Erkan Teper and is excited to be returning home to Liverpool. "This homecoming means a lot to me," said Price, who has rebuilt his career with German promoters Sauerland. The bout is Friday June 26 as part of a huge bill live on Sky Sports. “My last fight in Liverpool didn’t go as planned, but that’s ancient history now. It’s behind me and I’ve moved on. I’m in a better place now than I was two years ago, and on June 26 people will see a much-improved fighter. The one-punch knockout artist is still there but now I’m a more polished boxer. I’m more relaxed and I’m enjoying my time in the ring. I’ve been working tirelessly in the gym, and I’m relishing the chance to get back under the bright lights and back fighting in front of my home fans at the Echo Arena.”.
