David Price lost via 7th round TKO to Christian Hammer, who was a (+200) underdog according to the bookies odds.
Price began the fight standing tall and working off his jab and was able to keep his shorter opponent at bay by utilizing a considerable reach advantage.
As the fight wore on, Hammer began to apply pressure that put Price on his back foot. Price began to languish on the ropes and absorb punches as he looked to clinch, showing clear signs of fatigue.
Price bought himself some respite after knocking down the aggressive Hammer with an uppercut counter that dropped the Romanian to the canvas in the dying seconds of Round 5.
Price opened Round 6 with a flurry looking to end the fight, but was unable to finish his opponent. After that, it look as as though Price had nothing left in the tank as he was repeatedly trapped in the corner taking heavy damage.
That was how the fight ended, with Price absorbing punches in the corner until referee Phil Edwards stepped in and waved the fight off.
That will be will be a 4th stoppage loss for Price and it is unclear where he is heading next. While Hammer will surely be looking for a heavyweight title fight, possibly against the winner of Joseph Parker vs Hughie Fury.
