Richard Towers predicts that David Price will “destroy” Sam Sexton

RICHARD Towers believes fellow unbeaten boxer David Price will have far too much power for Sam Sexton in their forthcoming British title fight.

The Sheffield man extended his winning run to 13-0 with a fifth-round TKO against American Harold Sconiers at Ponds Forge on Saturday, with rumours suggesting his next fight will be a tilt at a title.

But, in the meantime, the Hatton Promotions fighter will be watching on keenly when Liverpool’s Price meets Sexton, from Norwich, at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday, May 19.

However, he fears  Sexton – whose only two defeats have come at the hands of world title challenger Dereck Chisora – will be brushed aside by the hyped and hungry Price.

“David Price will be too big and strong for Sam Sexton, and I think he will absolutely destroy  him,” said Towers.

“He’ll jab his head off before doing the same thing he did to John McDermott (Price won inside a round), although McDermott was in appalling condition for that fight. I’d sparred him before the fight was re-scheduled and we worked on John using his brain – but when he got in the ring, he didn’t do that.

“David seems to be doing well, but what people don’t understand is that in boxing you’ve got to learn to walk before you can run.

“Someone like Tyson Fury is just starting to run now, he’s proving himself. I’ve got a lot of time and respect for him and I think he’ll do well. Other boxers have to prove themselves.”
