The Liverpudlian was kept waiting by Chisora, who wore his usual British flag bandana and sunglasses, but Price stared back as they traded words ahead of Saturday’s fight on the Regis Prograis-Josh Taylor bill at The O2, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Asked about Chisora’s attempt at mind games, Price insisted he had gained a psychological edge over his British rival.
I have been taking lessons on how to hypnotise. Told him he’s going to be as weak as a kitten tomorrow.
“No chance of that happening,” Price told Sky Sports. “I’m just nice and calm and relaxed really.
“I’ve just said to him then, even though I couldn’t see [through] his sunglasses, I’ve looked into his eyes, I can hypnotise him. I have been taking lessons on how to hypnotise.
“Told him he’s going to be as weak as a kitten tomorrow. He said ‘it’s the only chance you’ll have’, but you know what, I’m looking forward to it.
“This is what it’s all about, testing myself against top, top heavyweights and this is going to be a great fight.
Both heavyweights were only separated by a few pounds, with Price coming in at 18st 12lbs 4oz, while Chisora tipped the scales at 18st 8lbs 3oz.
But Price’s height advantage was evident when they posed for photos before Chisora gave a parting wave.
