Audley Ponders Return: I May Roll The Dice Once Again

Audley Harrison says he may 'roll the dice one more time' despite his brutal first round knockout at the hands of David Price.

The ubiquitous Harrison appeared to be heading into retirement after being taken out by the British and Commonwealth champion inside 90 seconds earlier this month.

But the former Olympic champion has built a pro career on defying the odds, and once again he is thinking about rebuilding.

"I looked at the tape [and] saw my mistake. Price took advantage with a brutal finish, but I think I may have to roll the dice one more time," he told his Twitter followers.

"If I got to show more with price, that may have been it, but with such a quick ending, I'm itching to go again. Will I? We will see..

"I think my decision is made. I ran on Sunday, did 10 rounds yesterday...weights today. I can't help the way I'm feeling, but I feel good.

"Was not a long punishing fight... I'll chill for now and think long and hard before I make a final decision."

While Harrison believes he still has a future in the ring, it is doubtful whether UK promoters, let alone the fans, will contemplate handing the soon-to-be 41 year old another chance.

Audley and his next opponent should fight in a phone booth - the advantage being that it would also accommodate the crowd.

lol Why return?

Shame he cant see his mistakes during the fight when they count. He is a multimillionaire and should just retire before he suffers permanent damage to his health.

Redemption in 2013 then! Of all the domestic guys he could have fought Price was the wrong one. Dont get me wrong, all of them knock him out but maybe in 2 or 3 rounds instead of 1. He should…
