Dereck Chisora says he would be happy to face David Price on his heavyweight rival's Liverpool turf.

Chisora is looking to make his way back up the boxing ladder after being granted a licence by the British Boxing Board of Control.

ESPN's Steve Bunce revealed in his column earlier in the week that he had heard that a deal to put Chisora and Price together in the ring is well down the line.

And Chisora has added weight to that feeling by confirming he would have no concerns about stepping into Liverpool to fight Price.

"I don't mind going to Liverpool in the summer time for a big fight against David Price," Chisora, who will face Ondrej Pala on April 20, told BBC Radio 5 Live.

Chisora has courted controversy for some out-of-the-ring issues, but says he has been working on cleaning up his act.

He said: "I did take [anger classes] but I've kind of stopped now. We'll see one day if it's worked."
