British heavyweight David Price is dealt a change in opponent for his bout in Germany on Saturday.

British heavyweight David Price will now face Hungarian fighter Istvan Ruzsinszky in his comeback bout on Saturday.

Price had been scheduled to meet Konstantin Airich in an eight-round contest in Stuttgart, but the Kazakh boxer failed a medical on Thursday.

Ruzsinszky, who has a professional record of 12 wins in 22 encounters, has previously lost to fellow British fighter Ian Lewison over four rounds.

Price is competing for the first time since suffering a second defeat to American Tony Thompson in July.
