THE LOWDOWN

Hopey Price is still very much in the formative stages as a professional with this being only his third fight since he left the amateur ranks - he won routinely in his first two fights as a pro at the back end of 2019. Much is expected of the 20-year-old from Leeds due to his stellar record at youth level where he claimed a Gold medal at 2018 Olympic Youth Games and he also won two European Championships and seven National Titles.

Jonny Phillips jumped at the opportunity to step in and face rising star Hopey Price at Matchroom Fight Camp. He comes into this contest with a 5-4 record but has lost each of his last three bouts on points. Phillips is probably best known for his sensational first round technical knock-out against Nathanael Wilson, the son of former World title contender Chris Eubank back in 2017 on the Groves vs Cox undercard.

THE PREDICTION

Much is expected of the highly-rated Hopey Price after an excellent amateur career led to him being snapped-up by Matchroom last year. The slick southpaw is a very well-schooled boxer who is likely to have too much class and ability for Phillips in this bout. The rising star from Leeds will look to get rounds under his belt so this fight could well go the distance.

Prediction: Price to win on points
