British heavyweight David Price describes Lennox Lewis as a "massive inspiration" after the former world champion agreed to advise the Liverpudlian.

David Price has revealed that he will be travelling to Canada for a training camp with former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis.

The Liverpudlian is currently preparing for a rematch with American Tony Thompson after he was stopped inside two rounds in February, and the Commonwealth champion believes that Lewis can help him improve in the ring.

The 29-year-old told the Liverpool Echo: "It is a good opportunity and working with Lewis can only add to my game. I hope some of his knowledge and experience can be passed onto me.

"Don't get me wrong, he's not going to sprinkle some magic dust and everything is going to be okay, because there is a lot of work still to be done.

"But who better to have around me in the gym than one of the greatest heavyweights to have ever been? It will be a massive inspiration to me."

Price's defeat to Thompson was his first in 16 professional fights.
