By: Jesús Milano
(June 1st) English featherweight prospect Hopey Price will defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental belt against James Beech Jr. on July 1 at the Sheffield Arena in Sheffield, England.
The showdown will be part of the Matchroom Boxing event and will feature some good fights. Price is a 23-year-old southpaw who has begun to make a name for himself internationally thanks to his good technique and the victories he has achieved.
In his most recent fight, Price won the regional belt of the pioneering organization after defeating Thomas Masson in a wide unanimous decision on March 18 in Newcastle.
Now he will return to the ring against Beech Jnr, a strong opponent who is not going through his best moment but who intends to turn the situation around with a victory in this opportunity. The Briton is 26 years old and has faced good boxers, which makes him a dangerous opponent.
Price comes in with a record of 10 wins, no losses and 3 knockouts. Beech Jnr has 15 wins, 4 losses and 2 knockouts.
