David Price: That Finish Would Have Knocked Anyone Out!

By Adam Norman

David Price surely ended the career of Audley Harrison with a devastating first-round knockout victory in Liverpool.

Price, defending his British and Commonwealth titles for the first time, hurt the former Olympic gold medallist with a straight right hand inside a minute and the veteran never recovered.

The Liverpudlian, moving his career record to 14-0, knew his awesome power was too much for Harrison who, backed up on the ropes, took another right hook that knocked him sideways.

Price moved in for the finish, a concussive left hook taking leave of Harrison's senses before another enormous right hand knocked him cold before he hit the floor.

"The finish was as good as it could have been, not enough happened in the fight to make it as good as it could be," Price said. "I need more rounds to see the best of me.

"I frighten myself sometimes. All the way through camp I never feel great until the last week when I put the smaller gloves on, and I know someone's on the end of a hiding come Saturday night.

"Unfortunately for Audley it was him but I didn't expect it to be that quick. That finish would have knocked anyone in the world out."

It was a brutal show of power from the likeable Price, for whom a world-title shot against Wladimir Klitschko surely moved a step closer.

Which route to the top promoter Frank Maloney takes remains to be seen, although the diminutive Londoner offered the unbeaten Tyson Fury £500,000 in the immediate aftermath.

For Harrison, a quiet life with his family on the outskirts of Los Angeles now surely awaits.

[QUOTE=daggum;12601519]um no. travis walker could take it.[/QUOTE] Adamek KO'd Walker in 5. Price hits much harder than Adamek. In fact, Walker has been KO'd six times.

[QUOTE=bobgyro;12604142]Price is ranked below Shannon Briggs and Hasim Rahman as a heavyweight. Price is a big slow thick pug with nothing to offer but a good laugh.[/QUOTE] Totally absurd. Rahman wouldn't last a full round against Price.

[QUOTE=flushuppercut;12603843]Would have taken anyone out?!? looked to me like Audley just wanted to go home and cash that check. Also Price swings way too wide(with no head movement at all) A hungry,skilled heavyweight will easily expose his weaknesses[/QUOTE] Swings way…

Price has a monstrous punch. If he lands clean it's lights out for almost anyone.
