Parody said:David Price is taking a step up to more dangerous opposition. He'll fight African Osborne Machimana on Saturday Feb 5 in Brentwood, UK.
referendum said:Price wins in three, and this was a Commonwealth title eliminator. Not sure what that means in terms of his next fight, but either way a nice step up for him.

After setting his punches up with his fast, accurate left jab, the 2008 Olympic bronze medallist landed a huge right hand flush on the Rafael Butler's chin.
27-year-old Butler went down hard, clearly badly hurt. Bravely he beat the count, but Butler was soon under more fight and a somewhat grazing left hook to the top of the head sent him down for a second time. Again Butler beat the count, but this time referee Steve Grey decided he had had enough. The official time came at 1-minute and 47 seconds.
Price is now 10-0(8).
