David Price will make his return to the ring on March 8 as he aims to continue his revival since suffering back-to-back losses to Tony Thompson.

Price secured a first-round knockout win over Istvan Ruzsinszky in Stuttgart on January 25 to get back to winning ways after he endured shock successive losses to Thompson last year.

Heavyweight Price has been working with German promoters Sauerland to help get his career back on track, and confirmed to World Boxing News that he is expecting a busy year on the canvas.

"I am looking forward to getting back into the ring and picking up where I left off in Stuttgart," Price told World Boxing News. "Obviously, I wouldn't complain if the outcome is the same, but I am hoping for a bit more resistance this time.

"I'd like to get a bit more ring time so that I can show everyone what I have been working on and what I'm capable of."

Promoter Kalle Sauerland stated an opponent for Price would be named later in February.
