Scarborough cruiserweight Danny Price is eagerly anticipating his professional homecoming fight at the Spa next Saturday night

Price tops a five-fight card at the venue’s Grand Hall with a six-round bout against an unconfirmed opponent, with four Northern-based fighters completing an action-packed bill.

Price said: “I just can’t wait to get in the ring now.

“It is taking a lot of organising to get this fight on and to bring professional boxing back to Scarborough, I hope the people of the town come down to the show.

“The lads on the bill are all good fighters and it is sure to be a good night of boxing.”

County Durham pair Kirk Goodings (pictured fighting Steve Williams at Aintree) and Neil Hepper are due to be on the bill, while Sunderland’s Tommy Ward and Terry Broadbent from Leeds will also be in action.

Doors open at 7pm, with boxing due to get under way at 8pm.

Price expects to be in the ring around 10pm on the night, and he wants to focus on the task at hand after getting his hands dirty with the organising of the event.

He added: “There has been a lot going on sorting things out with sponsors and selling tickets, but I’m sparring now and getting ready to put on a show for boxing fans in Scarborough.”

Price was quick to thank sponsors M&J Builders, AS Roofing and Exley Smith Electrical, and admits he is still on the hunt for sponsors.

Anyone interested in sponsoring any of the fights should get in touch with Danny on 07883060178.

Tickets are still on sale priced at £35 or £70 ringside.

These can be bought by ringing Danny or by visiting www.scarboroughspa.co.uk.

Price added: “The support has been great so far, thanks to everyone who has bought tickets. I hope people get behind the event and come down.”
