David Price is "definitely" still interested in a big domestic battle with Tyson Fury as he prepares to return to the ring this month.

A heavyweight clash between the Liverpudlian and Fury failed to materialise when they were at an earlier stage of their ring careers, but both fighters are now managed by MTK Global.

Price is due to fight again in Bolton on July 27, with an opponent to be announced, and is working towards a major bout later in the year.

"According to my management there could be a big fight in the autumn for me," Price told Sky Sports.

"That's why it's important to get this one done and dusted and out of the way, and then we can start talking about what's going to happen next."

Fury ended his lengthy absence from the ring last month, stopping Sefer Seferi in the fourth round, and is due to fight again in August at Belfast's Windsor Park.

Price has even discussed a future fight with Fury and believes there is enough public demand for it to be staged.

"Oh yeah, definitely. Definitely would interest me," said the former British and Commonwealth champion.

"Whether or not it's something Tyson Fury would be interested in is another story, because you've got to look at the risk-reward factor for Tyson Fury, which I've spoken to him about anyway.

It's probably more interesting now than any other time, because of the circumstances that he's coming back after a long lay-off.

"For him to fight me, I've lost five times, would he get any credit for beating me? Probably not and there's the chance that I could knock him out, there is that chance, although that's probably how he feels, there is always the fact that I think a lot of people would still like to see the fight.

"It's probably more interesting now than any other time, because of the circumstances that he's coming back after a long lay-off.

"I'm kind of on the scrap heap in a lot of people's eyes, so it would be a massive opportunity for me to upset the apple cart as a massive underdog, so I think a lot of people are interested in it for them reasons.

"I'm definitely interested in big fights like that, course I am, that's why I'm in the game."
