SCARBOROUGH’S Danny Price will be back on the big bills in May when he bids to make it five wins out of five.

Price, who won his fourth consecutive cruiserweight bout with a 40-36 points victory against John Anthony in Sheffield on Saturday night, is being lined up by manager Frank Maloney for the undercard of David Price’s battle with Sam Sexton for the vacant British title.

This show will be held at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool on May 19.

Maloney said: “We are looking to get Danny out on the David Price card at Aintree. It is a big show, but Danny is making the step up.

“That will probably be his first fight over six rounds because we are confident that he is ready.

“These are still learning fights at the moment. It is a big step moving up from the amateur game to professional boxing, it is a completely different world.

“Danny just needs to work on things after every fight, it is about analysing what you did wrong and making the tweaks to make it right.

“He is a confident lad, a good trainer and he enjoys his boxing, so things are looking very good for him.

“People like Danny as well. He is getting some great reviews from people in boxing, which is another boost for him.”

Maloney is still looking at staging a one of Price’s fights in Scarborough, though he is waiting for the right time.

He added: “We do want to put a fight on in Scarborough, probably at the Spa because that is a great venue.

“There is no point though when he is fighting over four or six rounds, you have to get the timing right.

“This time next year we are looking at Danny being involved with title fights, so staging one of those in Scarborough could be an option.”
