Price, who was to face mandatory challenger Dereck Chisora if he wanted to retain his titles, will instead focus on rebuilding his career following back-to-back stoppage defeats to Tony Thompson.
This rebuilding process will begin on December 14th in Germany as Price fights against Russian giant Evgeny Orlov (14-12-1, 10). The 6'9" Russian is one of the very few active fighters actually taller than Price though he is a man whose limitations have been shown up in the past and he comes in to this bout with just 3 wins in his last 9 contests.
It's expected that Price will remain in Germany for a number of fights. Whilst his loyal Liverpudlian fans will certain miss him it could well be a move that could save his career, especially considering the fact his confidence appears to be completely gone. A few wins in Germany to rebuild his confidence is likely to do him the world of good and Sauerland likely think the same.
