Hopey Price – I Will Show That I’m Levels Above Zahid Hussain

Last updated

Hopey Price will be taking on Zahid Hussain at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday February 13th, live on Sky Sports in the UK and on DAZN in the U.S. This matchup is part of the massive Matchroom Boxing production in just under two weeks with Warrington vs Lara as the headliner.

We were sent the following quotes directly from Matchroom Boxing, with Price discussing the bout against Hussain in just under two weeks.

‘All I know is Zahid Hussain is from Leeds and he’s 16-1’, said Hopey Price. ‘Most people would look at someone who’s 3-0 fighting a 16-1 fighter as a big step-up, but for me I take it in my stride. I will prove how good I am and I’m looking to steal the show.”

‘I want to prove I’m the next big thing to come from Leeds” Price continued. “There’s levels to boxing and I will show in this fight that I’m levels above Zahid Hussain. If I keep putting on these good performances then I’ll continue to be on the good shows. I don’t feel I’m far off Title level but I’m still only young. As soon as Dave and Eddie give me the green light then I’ll be ready to bring belts back. I think the fans are going to watch me and think, ’˜wow, who is this kid!’ I want to people to say, ’˜this kid is special’.

“I’m not in this game to just become a British Champion, I want to be one of the all time greats. If I am going to get there then I need to take these types of fights and show how good I am. I believe I should be beating guys at this level in style. 

“On February 13 you’re going to see a big improvement from me. Fight Camp was an amazing experience and against Johnny Phillips I stepped out of the journeyman bracket and fought someone who was coming to win, which only means you’ll see a better Hopey Price.”
