Despite protests from ‘Del Boy’, his return to the ring is set to serve as the chief support act to the IBF and WBA super-lightweight unification bout between Josh Taylor vs Regais Prograis.
Chisora was originally scheduled to meet former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker – but the New Zealander was forced to withdraw due to illness, likely brought on by a spider bite, according to his manager David Higgins.
Price steps in however, reinvigorated after a superb performance and victory over Dave Allen in July.
Both men hope to force their way into the world title conversation, one which Chisora fell out of following a second defeat to Dillian Whyte in December last year.

Chisora to win: 30/100
Price to win: 13/5
Somehow, we don't see this one going the distance.
Chisora demonstrated he still has that ferocious power in him with that devastating second round knockout of Artur Szpilka in July.
While Price turned in an extremely polished performance against Allen, one of the best of his career, 'Del Boy' will still be considered the favourite.
Chisora to win via TKO in mid-to-late rounds.
