A reinvigorated Pryce fancies a crack at Funtime Frankie

The Birmingham southpaw broke Denton Vassell’s jaw on route to a seventh round stoppage on June 28, and he appears to have scared off the rest of the division. A day later, Pryce, 32, had his own success with an impressive performance over eight rounds against Chingford's Michael Lomax, and is more than willing to step in to face Gavin.

Pryce says he’s re-found his form under the guidance of new trainer, former Commonwelath super bantamweight champion Jamie Arthur. The Newbridge fighter said:

“I’m not going to bad mouth Gavin, he’s done everything asked of him and he’s looked exceptional doing it but I’d love a crack at his titles. No doubt Gavin would be one of the best of my opponents but I’m in a good place right now, I'm ready for him.

“I might not have an undefeated record to put against him but I’ve been in with everyone, even the best prospects all the way up at middleweight had hard nights against me. I’m doing things now I wish I’d been doing ten years ago and feeling better than I have for a long time, even than when I was Commonwealth champion.”

Pryce continued:  “Gavin is on the brink of European and world level now, he’ll be looking at bigger names than me and that’s why I need to catch him before he gets there. It’s pretty simple, if he wants the British outright and I’m the only person who will fight him then it should happen.”
