David Price has revealed that his main target for 2015 is an all-British clash with Tyson Fury - with Dereck Chisora and Anthony Joshua also on his wanted list.

The all-British affair between Fury and Chisora on November 29 may be billed as the final eliminator for the WBO title and a chance to face world champion Wladimir Klitschko, but Price fancies a shot at the winner.

The 6ft 8in heavyweight is set to make his return from a hand injury in December in either Germany or Denmark, but is keen for a "meaningful step up" in England in February.

"I'm hoping for a big domestic fight against Tyson Fury," Price told BBC Sport. "It's definitely a fight that I want.

"The fact is, whoever wins that fight [between Fury and Chisora] is going to have to wait a while for a shot at Klitschko. But would they take a chance of fighting someone like me in between? We'll soon find out."

Price is also open to the idea of fighting Anthony Joshua - who is nine knockout wins from nine since turning professional after winning gold at the London 2012 Olympics.

Price added: "If Eddie Hearn and Matchroom want to stick to their guns by saying they want me to fight Anthony Joshua, then that's a very interesting fight as well.

"But in a nutshell, I think I'm a couple of fights away from a big domestic one. That's where I'll come back and prove every doubter wrong."
