David Price-Ondrej Pala Bout Moved to April 12


A bout between English heavyweight David Price and Ondrej Pala has been moved from March 29 to April 12, Sauerland Promotions has announced.

Price-Pala was originally scheduled for the undercard headlined by WBO cruiserweight titlist Marco Huck, whose thumb fracture forced the cancelation of his title defense against Mirko Larghetti in Germany.

Price-Pala has been added to Sauerland Promotions' "Nordic Fight Night" show in Esbjerg, Denmark, to be headlined by Swedish light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (19-0, 10 knockouts) in a bout against Italy's Danilo D’Agata (12-1-1, 3 knockouts).

The 6-foot-8 Price (16-2, 14 knockouts), 30, was last seen in action scoring a first-round knockout of Istvan Ruzsinszky in January, helping him rebound from consecutive stoppage losses to Tony Thompson in the second and fifth rounds in February and July of last year, respectively.

Pala is coming off a January first-round stoppage of Roman Cherney, bouncing back from a third-round stoppage loss to Dereck Chisora last November.

A 29-year-old who stands 6-foot-3 and hails from the Czech Republic, Pala is 33-4 with 23 knockouts. Price, who briefly trained with Adam Booth, has begun training with Tommy Brooks.

Also on the card is middleweight contender Andy Lee (31-2, 22 KOs) against an opponent to be determined.
