Seconds Out: David Price to face Tom Little in London next month; Elliot Foster returns with all the latest on the boxing scene.

Byline: liverpoolecho

David Price has had his opponent confirmed ahead of his return next month.

The 35-year-old heavyweight was last in action back in September.

Price suffered a bicep injury and was withdrawn from a fight against undefeated Russian Sergey Kuzmin after four completed rounds of action at Wembley Stadium, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office.

It has been confirmed that 'The Grizzler', training at the Four Corner Combat Gym in Liverpool, will return on the same platform on a card topped by a heavyweight rematch.

Price will box on December 22 at the O2 Arena in London, as part of the supporting cast to Dillian Whyte's return showdown against Dereck Chisora.

And now the show's promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that Price will take on Tom Little over six rounds on the card.

Little, who failed to fight Bogdan Dinu in Bulgaria last month after the 32-year-old Romanian secured a fight this weekend with undefeated American contender Jarrell Miller, is 31 and from Hertfordshire. He was last in action in July when he challenged Daniel Dubois for the vacant English heavyweight title and was stopped inside five rounds, just five months after being stopped by Croatian star Filip Hrgovic inside four stanzas.

Jazza looks set for London British title showdown

Jazza Dickens finally looks to have a dance partner for his next title fight.

The former British super-bantamweight champion had been set to challenge Martin Ward, and his brother Thomas before him, for the vacant crown.

But Dickens upped sticks and moved to Miami, Florida, after it was revealed that there were no fights this side of the pond for him and he even secured a first-round win last week in the Dominican Republic.

Seconds Out: Alex Dickinson looking to end year with bang

The fact he can't seem to find foes in the UK, however, looks like it's about to change because, according to the latest round of British Boxing Board of Control notices, the Liverpool man will take on undefeated Brad Foster for the belt before the end of the year.

Foster, from Lichfield, is a 21-year-old with a record of 9-0-1 with three early finishes. He was last in action back in July when he claimed the vacant Midlands Area super-bantamweight title against the previously undefeated Leon Gower, forcing him to retire on his stool at the end of the eighth round.

The contest, promoted by Dennis Hobson, will be hosted in December -- on a date to be confirmed -- at a venue to be revealed in due course.

Fowler to box in Sheffield next month

Anthony Fowler will be back in the ring next month.

The super-welterweight will vie for his first title on a card in Sheffield.

Fowler, it has been revealed, will box on December 8 at the FlyDSA Arena, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

He will fight a foe to be confirmed for a belt to be confirmed, as part of the supporting cast to Kell Brook's WBA welterweight title eliminator against Michael Zerafa.

The card will feature the Commonwealth Games gold medallist's fellow Team GB 2016 Olympian Qais Ashfaq as well as WBA International and Commonwealth welterweight titlist Josh Kelly in against former WBA 'regular' world champion David Avanesyan and a number of other talents, including former Johnny Quigley opponent Jono Carroll.
