Heavyweight boxer Dillian Whyte believes sparring with British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price has considerably improved his preparation for his upcoming fight on 7 July.
Undefeated Whyte (pictured) fights Gabor Farkas at York Hall in Bethnal Green and is adamant that sharing the ring with Price, widely thought of as Britain's best domestic heavyweight, is the best way to nurture his skill set.
"He's a good fighter," said Whyte. "He's tall, rangy and can punch but also is a boxer who thinks about what he is doing.
"He's a good all round fighter and a great guy. I was chuffed with the way it [the sparring] went.
"When I go sparring, I go sparring. He is a lot more experienced than me.
"I look forward to sparring someone like that again because if I keep sparring those type of guys then I'll just go up and up."
