Price pulls out of clash

Liverpool heavyweight David Price has been forced to pull out of his scheduled comeback bout in Germany next Saturday night due to a virus.

Price was due to take on Evgeny Orlov in Neubrandenburg in his first bout since the second of his back-to-back stoppage defeats to American Tony Thompson in June.

Price said: "Obviously I am disappointed. 'I was looking forward to my first fight back but I wouldn't be doing myself or my fans justice by taking the fight when I am anything less than 100 per cent."
