Audley Not Retiring: I Can't Walk Away Off That Loss
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Recently retired Olympic Gold Medalist Audley Harrison has announced his return to the ring immediately. Having announced his retirement on May 1st following his TKO loss to rising star Deontay Wilder, Audley has rescinded his decision and will return to the ring.  Audley and his wife Raychel recently added a baby boy the family, with the birth of Hudson Hugh Harrison on Thursday.  Seeing his son born helped to finalize his decision.

‘Firstly, I’m grateful to God for this blessing with the birth of Hudson, a healthy and beautiful little angel. Raychel my wife is a trooper, as childbirth is no joke’.

‘When I made the tough decision to walk away from boxing, I knew it was not going to be easy. As the days past, I knew I would not be able to live with the decision. I wrestled with it for a few weeks, and spoke to everyone from the Boxing Board, to Lennox Lewis, David Haye, my dad, wife and many others…ultimately seeing my son born crystallized my decision’.

‘There is no way I am going to tell my son, ‘I gave up because I didn’t want to climb the mountain again, I didn’t want to dust myself off again, when I’m now in the best shape of my career, doing things I haven’t done for years, and back in love with the sport…how can I retire, when I know I have another shot in me’.

‘If I don’t get up and try again, everything I’ve stood for would mean nothing …’NEGU’, ‘setbacks pave the way for comebacks’, etc, etc, I believe it, so I have to live it, and go again’.

‘We all saw how the fight ended, which was not right. I can’t walk away with that performance. If I do, it would haunt me until I’m old and grey’. I got up, they should have let him come to finish me, and let me show what I got’.

‘People who worry I may get hurt, I thank you for your concerns.  We live in a free society and my desire for freedom and autonomy is my universal right’.

‘Don’t know where, but see you in a ring real soon’.

....there's a cunning Audley masterplan in there somewhere. And it probably involves seven flabby, novice Latvian heavyweights and a big sign above the door called 'Prizefighter - The Heavyweight 22' and a plump bundle of quick cash.

if Harrison wants to end his career with a win he should fight the ring card girl

Didn't this guy once get ko'd on national tv by Michael Sprott?

Loool, who didn't see this coming? I won 50 quid on this.. I'd say what a joke, but it's gone beyond that a long time ago. The guy's probably the worst high level gatekeeper in boxing
