The hard-hitting heavyweight will face Emilio Ezequiel Zarate (18-13-3, 9 KOs) as part of a bumper bill of international boxing brought to you by Team Sauerland and Hennessy Sports from the EWE Arena in Oldenburg, Germany.

‘’I can’t wait to get back into the ring and back to what I do best,’’ said Price. ‘’This will be my first fight on terrestrial television and it’s a great opportunity for me to show everybody what I can do.

‘’I’m working hard everyday in the gym and the time I’ve spent out with injury has only made me hungrier. On December 6, people are going to see me at my most dangerous. I’m coming with bad intentions. I want put in a performance and entertain all the fans watching at home on Channel 5.’’

‘’Pricey is without a doubt one of the most exciting heavyweight boxers on the planet,’’ said promoter Nisse Sauerland. ‘’We’re excited to be working with Mick Hennessy to give the UK audience a chance to see him live in action on Channel 5.’’

“It’s great to have David Price boxing on terrestrial television for the first time in his professional career,” said promoter Mick Hennessy. “David is always in exciting fights and is known for his one-punch power. He’s one of the biggest punchers in the world right now.

“This appearance on Channel 5 will give David the exposure he needs and will allow a much bigger audience to get a taste of the power he possesses.

“Tyson (Fury), Peter (Fury) and I are all rooting for him to do well and are hoping we can set up a domestic blockbuster once Tyson has won the world heavyweight title next year.”

The British heavyweight star is the latest addition to an action-packed show on December 6, which also features the IBF World Championship clash between Cuban cruiserweight king Yoan Pablo Hernandez (29-1, 14 KOs) and London-born Ola Afolabi (21-3-4, 10 KOs). Tickets are available via eventim.de.
