Audley Vows: My Final Bit is To Fix My Boxing Career!

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

AUDLEY HARRISON will call time on his boxing career – if he flops on his final visit to the ‘Last Chance Saloon’.

Harrison challenges David Price for the British heavyweight title at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday – and he insists victory is essential.

The 2000 Olympic gold medallist is 41 later this month and fighting to save a ­career that hit rock bottom with his emphatic ­defeat at the hands of David Haye in 2010.

Now he faces Price, 29, himself an Olympic bronze medal winner, saying: “If David Price beats me, it will be over for me as a pro boxer.

“There is no doubt about it. This is the ‘Last Chance Saloon’for me. But I’m ready.”

Harrison says he is now a much more mature fighter and has got rid of the arrogance that turned many fans against him during a disappointing 12-year pro career.

He said: “I’ve grown up. I have been beaten up so much by the universe, I have been shaped by my experience.

“I feel totally balanced now and a complete person. I am content in my life.

“The final bit to fix is my boxing career.”

Harrison admitted that fans’ perception of him over the years has been coloured by his verbal arrogance.

He said: “I understand when people say things about me. But in the last 12 years, you have seen glimpses of the magic I have. On Saturday you are going to see me as complete as I can be.

“The David Haye fight was a catastrophe for me, but I have come through that failure and I didn’t give up on myself.”

Just don't see any way Audley beats Price. I see him retiring on a KO loss if he is serious about this being it if he loses.

David Price should be fighting someone better by now. Audrey is a bum.
