Liverpool heavyweight David Price insists he has not turned his back on a domestic showdown against Dereck Chisora despite announcing his decision to relinquish his British and Commonwealth titles.

Chisora's promoter Frank Warren won the purse bids to stage the contest last month and Price, who has since signed with Sauerland Promotions in Germany, says he would not rule out meeting European champion Chisora at some point in 2014.
Price is due to make his return to the ring for the first time since suffering back-to-back stoppage losses to Tony Thompson when he faces Evgeny Orlov in Neubrandenburg, Germany on December 14.
Price said: "I am extremely proud to have been British and Commonwealth champion. I have some fantastic memories of some great nights winning and defending both belts.
"Now the time is right for me to move in a different direction in order to rebuild my career and achieve my ultimate goal of becoming heavyweight world champion.
"As for the fight with Dereck, this is something that really interests me and I'd hope it has the potential to be made later next year."
