SCARBOROUGH’S Danny Price has been seeking advice from the stars in a bid to improve his charge into professional boxing.

Price collected his fourth successive victory since turning professional in Sheffield on Saturday night, after which he sought the councel of former world cruiserweight champion Glenn McCrory.

McCrory was commentating on the proceedings at the Hillsborough Leisure Centre for Sky Sports.

Price said: “He told me to bend my knees a bit more and also to have a bit more confidence when I go forward.

“It is great to be able to have a chat with these guys, they have been there and done it, they really know what they are talking about.

“It is all about learning at this stage and if you can learn from the best then it can only help.”

Price is now awaiting his fifth outing, which is scheduled to take place at Merseyside’s Aintree Racecourse in May.

He will be on the undercard to the British heavyweight title fight between David Price and Sam Sexton.

The Scarborough fighter is aiming to have fully recovered from the injury that held him back on Saturday night against a solid John Anthony.

Price added: “I have torn a muscle in my left elbow, which just stopped me doing what I wanted to do in the fight.

“It isn’t a bad tear, but it was hurting a bit during the fight.

“I’m just going to rest it up over the next few weeks and I’ll be fine for my next fight.”
