He bit Price after the pair fell to the floor in the fifth round before referee Mark Lyson disqualified the 27-year-old. The British Boxing Board of Control suspended his licence after the incident but Ali insists he has now spoken to his rival and is deeply sorry for his actions.
In a statement, he told reporters: “I would like to apologise for my unacceptable behaviour in my fight against David Price. “I am sorry to all boxing fans, to my team, my family, the British Boxing Board, David Price, his team, and his family. “I am hugely embarrassed for my actions and the way the whole fight unfolded.
“The occasion got the better of me and those who know me, including David, can testify that my behaviour on Saturday during the fight was not a true reflection of who I am.”
