Lauren Price: Olympic champion stars on professional boxing debut with dominant win over Valgerdur Gudstensdottir

Lauren Price made light work of her professional debut as she teased glimpses of her blistering speed to cruise to victory over Valgerdur Gudstensdottir at Wembley Arena on Saturday.

The Olympic middleweight gold medalist delivered the flurries and footwork of a pure lightweight to underline her huge potential as a multi-division thorn within a thriving women's boxing scene.

Price started on the front foot and dictated the tempo of the fight from the off, landing a slick left jab to jolt the head of Gudstensdottir early on before perfecting her distancing in a bid to wear down her Icelandic opponent.

Gudstensdottir's efforts to claw her way back into the contest only played to Price's introduction as the 27-year-old showcased her slick reflexes and shrewd ring coverage.

"I wanted to relax while I was in there, I didn't want to rush my work and a great six rounds under my belt and let's go again," Price said after the fight.

"I just wanted a classy performance really, I didn't want to rush or make my work look messy."

She has now set her sights on getting onto the undercard for Savannah Marshall's fight with Claressa Shields in September.
