Danny Price cut a relaxed figure after his comfortable points success against Hastings Rasani on Saturday night.

Everything went to plan for the cruiserweight, who made it two out of two since turning pro.

“I was really happy with it because I got the four rounds under my belt and I managed to stick to the game-plan,” said the 26 year old.

“He was an experienced fighter, in his last fight he drew with a former European champion, but I got behind the jab, didn’t get involved and didn’t do anything silly.

“At times I hurt him a bit and didn’t follow it up, but I didn’t want to get caught because I was winning the fight comfortably anyway.”

Price feels that he owes a lot of his success to his travelling army from Scarborough, who turned up the volume in a busy arena throughout the fight.

He added: “I did a few pads on Friday with Patch my coach and I didn’t feel good at all. As soon as I got in the ring though I felt marvellous.

“This might have been down to the travelling fans, who are just amazing. For around 100 of them to make it to my fight at this time of year was fantastic.

“The difference they make is unbelievable, I can’t thank them enough.

“When you feel a bit tired and you hear them it just gives you a second wind, allowing you to get going again.”

There will be no respite for Price after cramming two fights into three months. He is now set to return to action early in the New Year.

“I’m back in the ring either next month or in February,” he said.

“It was originally supposed to be against a lad called Hari Miles, but he has just had a 10-round win against Johnny Vincent, so they’ll be looking for him to challenge for the British title.

“I’m not really bothered who I fight next, whoever they put in the ring with me I’ll beat. I wouldn’t mind if they put me back in there tomorrow.”

As well as being roared on by his travelling army from Scarborough, Price was also supported by fellow pro fighter Tony Jeffries, another of Maloney’s prize fighters.

Danny added: “Tony is my best mate in boxing, he comes to my fights when he can and I go to his. David Price would have been here as well, but he is in Las Vegas at the moment.”
