Boxing - David Price ends brief arrangement with Adam Booth

According to various reports, former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price has ended his brief arrangement with trainer Adam Booth after just two months.

Having recently signed a promotional deal with Germany based Sauerland Promotions, it is understood the company was unhappy with Booth occupying both the trainer and manager's role, which caused him to quit both, according to the reports.
