Scarborough’s Danny Price is keen to continue progressing his professional boxing adventure with promoter Frank Maloney.

Price signed with Maloney almost a year ago and the cruiserweight is pressing up the British rankings in swift fashion.

Since then SKY have trimmed their boxing budget, removing Maloney and Ricky Hatton from their schedules.

Price has since revealed though that his promoter is close to sealing a new television deal, with the Scarborough boxer likely to feature on the first live show, which is set to be broadcast from the Liverpool Echo Arena later this year.

He said: “Frank has stuck by me from the start and he has always been honest.

“He has told me that he is concentrating his efforts in the future on four boxers and I am one of them.”

“Frank promised me five fights a year and I am already on that number. I am due to fight on the David Price bill later this year, so that is something I’m really looking forward to.”

Maloney is also delighted with the way that Price is progressing as a pro fighter.

“Danny is doing well, he is progressing nicely and is one for the future,” he said.

“If you look at the cruiserweight division, I can see both Danny and Jon Lewis Dickinson dominating things in the future, both of them come from the same stable.”

Maloney had hinted that he was looking at taking Price Stateside and giving him a home run-out in Scarborough.

He added: “We are still looking at both of those options.

“At the moment though we are confirming things for the new season. Danny is likely to be on the next David Price bill.”
