British heavyweight David Price insists that he cannot afford to lose to Tony Thompson in their rematch on Saturday night.

British heavyweight David Price has admitted that it is "make or break" for him as he prepares to face Tony Thompson on Saturday night.

Thompson stunned Price in February by stopping the Liverpudlian inside two rounds, and the Olympic bronze medallist has acknowledged that he can't suffer another defeat.

The 29-year-old told Sky Sports News: "This fight is massive, make or break fight for me. I can't afford to lose again. The preparation is everything.

"I'm in this game to earn a living. If I thought that this fight would jeopardise my future earnings or providing for my family, then I wouldn't have gone down the route of pursuing the rematch."

Price has sought the advice of former heavyweight world champion Lennox Lewis ahead of tomorrow's bout.
