Alfie Price steps up a level to take on former Dutch national champion in his next fight

Unbeaten super-lightweight prospect Alfie Price (2-0) faces a former Dutch national champion on September 29 at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on a British Warriors Boxing event.

‘Pricey’ not only steps up to a higher calibre of competition but also moves up in rounds as he enters into his first six-rounder in only his third paid outing.

Forthcoming opponent Innocent Anyanwu (25-34-3), 39 from Amsterdam, won the Dutch featherweight title in 2008 by knocking his opponent Araik Sachbazjan down four times en route to a unanimous decision victory.

The Nigerian-born boxer went undefeated in the first four years and 22 fights of his career between 2005-2009 and has now experienced over 390 professional rounds in his 62-fight career and can boast a 60% KO ratio having finished 15 of his 25 victims inside the distance. Despite not winning a fight since February 2017, he hasn’t been stopped in his last 10 contests against some top prospects and a Southern Area champion.

The last person to halt Anyanwu was former English super-lightweight champion Anto Upton in September last year in the final round of their six-round contest.

The 24-year-old southpaw was last in action last May when he took IBF Youth welterweight titlist Nathan Dale (21-1) the distance in a six-round welterweight contest.

Price, a European bronze medallist from Hoddesdon, has so far defeated the usual suspects in Newark’s Fonz Alexander (5-84) in June and Wiltshire’s Liam Richards (12-45) on his debut in March.

The 24-year-old former Team GB boxer experienced an outstanding amateur career, winning 85 from 100 bouts and collecting dozens of titles, including a European bronze medal, so inevitably wants to push on in his paid career, with his eye fixed already on title fights next year.
