Kash Ali hopes to clear up any controversy in a rematch with David Price, as he prepares to return from a ban following an infamous fight with the Liverpudlian.
The Birmingham heavyweight faces Artur Kubiak later this month after serving a six-month ban for biting Price in a disqualification defeat in March.
Ali wants to start a new chapter in his career, having teamed up with promoter Dennis Hobson and trainer Richard Towers, and believes a second fight with Price would give him the chance for redemption.
“David Price knows me, to be honest, that behaviour doesn’t indicate who I am,” Ali told Sky Sports.
“I’m confident whenever I go in the ring, but especially that fight.
“David Price was good, I don’t think he can get any better than when I fought him. He had a good performance with Dave Allen, but with me, I know there were many things that could have been better.
“I’m 100 per cent confident [about beating Price], but that is not the be all and end all. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen, and I’ll go a different route and continue my journey.”

Price suffered a fourth stoppage loss to Derek Chisora earlier this month after stepping in as a late replacement, and this result did not surprise Ali, who would aim to inflict a similar outcome.
“When I fought him, he had a full 12 weeks, he was in shape, but with Chisora, he just came in short notice and wasn’t in the best of shape. I expected nothing less, to be honest,” he said.
