DAVID PRICE will be looking to put himself back in world title contention should he produce a shock win against Derek Chisora at the 02 Arena on Saturday night. The 36-year-old - who stepped in for Joseph Parker after the New Zealand heavyweight pulled out through a spider bite - is coming off the back of a career-best performance. 2 Derek Chisora faces David Price in an all-British dust-up on Saturday night Price beat Dave Allen in his last bout in July, with the Doncaster man retiring before the 11th round after being dominated by the Liverpudlian. But Chisora is also in good form - winning his last two contests after being brutally knocked out by Dillian Whyte in December. The winner could be in line for a shot at former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, with the Ukrainian announcing his arrival to the heavyweight division with a stoppage win against Chazz Witherspoon earlier this month.
Here SunSport gives you the rundown on all the key information for Chisora's all-British dust-up against Price in what is the chief support for the World Boxing Super Series final between Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis. When is the Chisora vs Price fight?

October top 10 pound-for-pound boxers in the world Show all 11 left Created with Sketch. Getty Images 1/11 Who is the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world? Juan Francisco Estrada (39-3-0) The two-weight world champion grabbed the lineal super flyweight title against Sor Rungvisai to snatch his pound-for-pound status and the WBC gold. Mikey Garcia (39-1-0) Despite coming up short against Errol Spence in their welterweight bout, Garcia is still a modern great as a four-weight world champion. The boxing legend is now a two-time world champion. Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2) The Filipino looked sensational to outpoint Keith Thurman, flooring the American and rolling back the years at 40 years old to confirm himself as the No 3 welterweight in the world at worst. Considering the illustrious names on his resume, a place inside the top 10 pound-for-pound list and a world class win this year confirms his place here. Errol Spence (26-0-0) Spence beat Shawn Porter to unify the welterweight division as he goes in search of more belts. Oleksandr Usyk (17-0-0) The undisputed, undefeated, unified cruiserweight world champion has successfully moved up in weight, beating Chazz Witherspoon on his heavyweight debut. Naoya Inoue (18-0-0) The man nicknamed the 'monster' destroyed Emmanuel Rodriguez in two rounds to win the IBF world bantamweight title, elevating his status as one of the world's most dangerous fighters. Terence Crawford (35-0-0) Another three-weight world champion, Crawford enters our top three and reaffirmed his place as one of the sport's greats after a knockout win against Amir Khan. Canelo Alvarez (52-1-2) One loss and a whole heap of controversy but Canelo's record is one to be celebrated, a three-weight world champion and still just 28. Just 15 fights into his career and despite one career defeat, the current unified lightweight world champion sets records for days. The fight can be purchased via Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95, and live streamed for the same price on your phone, tablet or computer. Dereck Chisora vs David Price takes place on October 26 at the O2 Arena in London. What time does the fight start? Though an exact start time depends on how long the fights lower on the bill last, it is likely that ringwalks will begin at about 9pm BST. Dereck Chisora 1/3 David Price 11/4 David Price is the underdog, but at his best he might be the better boxer, keeping the fight at range. But Price has struggled to produce his best on a consistent basis, and Chisora is a different calibre of fighter to Allen, therefore we are predicting a Dereck Chisora victory, penetrating Price's guard a little too often and possibly forcing the stoppage.
