Audley Receives Deontay Wilder Offer For Khan-Diaz

By Edward Chaykovsky

Olympic gold medal winner Audley Harrison (31-6, 23KOs) has reportedly received an offer to face undefeated heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder (27-0, 27KOs), according to Pat Sheehan of The Sun. The fight is being targeted for the Amir Khan vs. Julio Diaz undercard, scheduled for April 27th at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena. Last month Audley won his second Prizefighter tournament. Wilder and Audley have sparred in the past, with the British boxer praising Wilder's power. If Audley rejects the offer, Sheehan says Belfast’s Martin Rogan (16-4, 8KOs) is ready to step in and face Wilder. Rogan lost in the second round of the Prizefighter tourney to Audley. He knocked out Albert Sosnowski in the first round.

[QUOTE=Garcia's Dad;13181420]Can't believe people like this fight. Unless they take perverse pleasure in seeing Audley get his brain scrambled again. Harrison will take the money and run, 2 rounds if we are lucky, another sh-tty spectacle. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App…

[QUOTE=feroth;13181139]Has Wilder been hurt or down as a pro? Never really seen him take a shot to see if he's got a good chin but I'll take ur word for it if you've seen it, he looks like the chinny…
