They are also joined by 2018 commonwealth Games medalists, Sandy Ryan and Paige Murney and Tori Ellis Willets, who will be competing in her second major tournament following a promising debut at the recent European Championships.
Price said, “Winning the European Games earlier this year was a really big achievement, particularly as I defeated the boxer that had beaten me in the World Championships semi-final last year. I took a lot of confidence from that win and I am now looking to take that into this year’s World Championships.”
“Not going to the European Championships has given me a good break and a chance to work on a few things in the gym. I am ready to go again now and looking forward to getting back in the ring again and putting in a strong performance ahead of the Olympic qualifying campaign which starts next year.”
