Former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price is determined to bounce back from his defeat to Alexander Povetkin and win the European title.
The towering Liverpudlian (22-5-KO18) was knocked out by former Olympic champion Povetkin at the Principality Stadium on May 31 but is confident a rediscovered love for boxing will help him earn more major honours.

Reflecting on a wild bout, Price added: "That hook landed so cleanly. If the referee hadn't have given him a count I could have followed up my attack before the end of the round. They were small margins.
"The knockout won't have been nice for people to watch in the heat of the moment but I didn't mind watching it straight afterwards when I went backstage. For a long time, I couldn't watch Erkan Teper knocking me out but you grow as a person.
"If a fighter quits just because they get knocked out, are they really a fighter? Getting knocked out is part of boxing and you have to accept that."
