Audley: Wilder Hits Like a Mule, I'll Take Price's Punch!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Olympic champion Audley Harrison (28-5, 21KOs) cut no corners when it came to his training camp for the October 13th bout with British heavyweight champion David Price (13-0, 11KOs) at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.  Audley got the best possible sparring and believes the tough training camp will allow him to "walk through Price."

"I've been real competitive in this camp and I found people who I believe can match David Price, can potentially beat David Price. Deontay Wilder, he's 26-0 with 26 knockouts and he won a Bronze medal at heavyweight in the Beijing, same as David. There is Joe Hanks, who is 26-0 with 19 knockouts, he's explosive and he's fast like Shannon Briggs....Malik Scott, another guy who is 33-0," Audley told Sky Sports.

"That's the best sparring I can get for somebody like David Price. They are all the same height as him..6'7, 6'8. Deontay Wilder punches like a mule and he's fast. And I had four weeks of him. And some days he was catching me with clean shots. Some people think that when David catches me with a right hand it will be over, but that certainly won't be the case. Even against David Haye, when I was at my worst, David hit me with about 20 punches before I went down and I still got up."

[QUOTE=badnewsbrown;12579507]Wilder doesn't seem like a particularly good puncher, but audley seems to have a weak chin so maybe to him it was like getting hit by a mule. Price should knock him silly[/QUOTE] 100% knockout rate........ the guy can punch!…

Audley will probably pull out with an injury this week.

[QUOTE=ShovelThumb;12579434]Sounds like Audley has been knocked silly by Scott and Wilder.[/QUOTE] If he's getting knocked silly by Malik Scott he's in real trouble. Malik has zero power. He's also nowhere near 6'7" or 6'8"--more like 6'2".

Audley is all talk when he's training in another continent, but when he's stood in the same boxing ring as David Price he'll fold like a cheap suit and hopefully never appear on our screens again

[QUOTE=Mikhnienko;12579715]I was going to make that exact prediction Last time Price faced a good counter punching southpaw with power it was Cammarelle....but Audley isn't Roberto.[/QUOTE] that was in the amateurs wasn't it? if we go by that then harrison is…
