Hopey Price (5-0, 1KO) vs Zahid Hussain (16-1, 2KO)

Super Bantamweight (122)

vacant IBO International Super Bantamweight Title

Hopey Price

Another Leeds faithful, Hopey Price, is a twenty-one-year-old prospect who has been amassing quality victories considering his career stage. Out-classing undefeated Italian, Claudio Grande, last just a month ago, Price dominated large stretches of the fight with his reach advantage. There are still times that Price traps himself onto the ropes, yet his positional awareness will sharpen over time. More important is Price’s ability to time a counter, creating the space to unload his counter straight that drives down on opponent’s chins – owing to his 5’8″ frame.

Zahid Hussain

Despite his extensive record, Zahid Hussain has only fought two fighters with winning records, of which he was defeated by one. Another Leeds lad and Central Area titleholder, Hussain will hold a slight height advantage over Price. In perhaps his most evenly matched fight, Hussain struggled to maintain the distance necessary to utilise his reach against Razag Najib. Preferring to stick and move, Hussain’s fluid lateral footwork and regular jab leaves him racking up rounds – yet he is utterly exposed on the inside. This is a perfect test for Price, who has so far only needed to ride his powerful counter-punching.

Predicted Result: Price Decision

A Leeds clash, Hopey Price has amassed greater names on his record despite enduring a far shorter career than Zahid Hussain. Price’s ability to time a counter, creating the space to unload his counter straight has carried him throughout his first five fights. Hussain as the slightly larger man provides a new test for Price. Hussain’s fluid lateral movement and back-foot boxing will force Price to press and attempt to cut off the ring. If Price is capable of cutting the distance against the regular jab of Hussain, he can expose the bigger man huge vulnerability on the inside.
