Biography

David Price was the first teenager to win the ABA Super-heavyweight title when he won the first of his three championships in 2003. He failed to qualify for the Athens Olympics after he was defeated in the quarter-finals of the 2004 European Championships by Italy's [Roberto Cammarelle] and he was also eliminated from the 2005 World Championships at an early stage, Price was much more successful at a lower level of competition within the British Commonwealth and in 2006 and 2007 was successively Commonwealth Games gold medalist and Commonwealth Boxing Federation champion. A potential rematch with Cammarelle at the 2007 World Championships could not take place because Price suffered a hand injury in his previous bout and was forced to qualify at the final Olympic qualifiers. At Beijing he scored an impressive victory over European champion [Islam Timurziyev] then was guaranteed a medal when his Lithuanian opponent was forced to retire from their quarter-final with injury. The Olympic semi-final finally reunited Price and Cammarelle in the ring but it was not an even fight and the Italian was a comfortable winner. Price made his début as a professional in 2009 and remains unbeaten as of the start of 2012.
