David Price's promoters, Team Sauerland, have said today that they will speak to Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn about arranging an all-British super-fight between the two heavyweights in 2015.

Price is rebuilding his career after back-to-back defeats by veteran American Tony Thompson under the German promoters, and was at ringside last night to see Joshua destroy Denis Bakhtov inside two rounds to win the WBC International heavyweight title at the 02 Arena.

Hearn stoked the fire for a bout between the two Brits by mentioning Price in his post-fight interview, and the Liverpudlian's promoters say they would be more than happy to arrange the bout for next year with the London 2012 super-heavyweight gold medallist.

Joshua extended his winning record to 9-0 with the ruthless win over Bakhtov, while Price has won in each of his last three bouts as he continues to move back up the rankings after his losses to Thompson last year.

After making short work of Bakhtov last night, Joshua said: "It only went two rounds but I just wanted to hurt him. He hadn't been stopped so I just wanted to see what he could take.

"He was a strong guy and he wasn't an easy opponent but I wanted to make light work of him."
