Price, who has signed a deal with Sauerland Promotions, will take on Russian Evgeny Orlov in Neubrandenburg on December 14 in a bill topped by a WBA light-heavyweight title fight between Juergen Braehmer and Marcus Oliveira.

"I am excited to be starting this new chapter in my career," Price said. "My training has been going really well. We have made some changes in the gym and come fight night people will see this in my performance.

"My opponent is a tough guy so I am not taking anything for granted but I have seen him in training and in fights so I know what I have to do to beat him. I can't wait to get back in the ring and get the ball rolling."

Price was considered a potential world title challenger before he was stopped in two rounds by veteran Thompson in February. Thompson repeated the feat over five rounds five months later.
