Audley Harrison: I'm Back, Two Fight Dates in America

By Mark Vester

Just when you thought you had seen the last of heavyweight Audley Harrison (27-5, 20KOs), the Olympic gold medal winner is coming to America. Harrison was last seen in November, where he put on a poor performance in his third round TKO loss to WBA heavyweight champion David Haye. The loss was poor enough to prompt the British Boxing Board of Control to conduct an investigation to explore if the fight was fixed. Harrison's trainer, Shadeed Suluki, will stick by his side.

"It's a humbling feeling knowing I am a vilified figure in boxing but I owe it to my fans who believe in me and I owe it to myself to give it one more go. I am 39 and couldn't live with myself unless I gave it one more go to finish my career on a high," Harrison told The Sun.

"I have been reluctant in the past to let anyone steer my career in the gym. But I have found a trainer in Shadeed who I trust completely. I am back in the gym and training and we are working on two dates in the US and a comeback in May. It will be a long road back and I have been in this position before. I am not a quitter. If I was I would have left boxing a long time ago."

He should go for the British title, not hang around America fighting bums.

Audley might not be a 'quitter' as he puts it but he's definatley not a winner either

The ref's intervention came just in time to save Haye from a beating because that last punch he landed before the stoppage had got Audley real mad.
