Audley Harrison Itching To Get His Hands on Tyson Fury

By Pawel Pronishev

Olympic gold medal winner Audley Harrison (27-5, 20KOs) is itching to get his hands on British/Commonwealth heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (15-0, 10KOs), who returns on September 17th at Kings Hall in Belfast, North Ireland. Harrison has been inactive since last November's three round TKO loss to David Haye, but he's willing to get in the ring with best fighters on the British scene. 

On the upcoming September date, Fury was due to face tough veteran Martin Rogan, who turned the fight down, and several other possible candidates have turned down offers. Fury’s opponent will be named next week in Belfast at a press conference at the King’s Hall on Wednesday.

Harrison doesn't expect a fight with Fury to happen,  stating that Fury's promoter Mick Hennessy "would never make the fight" because there is too much danger involved for Fury.

I wouldn't mind seeing Fury-Harrison - it's an interesting style match-up. Audley is just a journeyman, but Fury is still an age 23 prospect and has had just 15 fights. He needs more experience against guys like Harrison brfore fighting…

Audrey may have forgotten, on account of being hit upside his head too many times, but we haven't; we've been down this road too many times before to be fooled again. Audrey is a shyte fighter. How do you think…
