Price: Audley Dangerous, Not Judging Him on Haye Loss

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID Price is bracing himself for the saddest night of his ­career – knocking Audley ­Harrison into retirement.

The two heavyweights meet at the ­Liverpool Echo Arena on October 13 and unbeaten Price has one regret.

He said: “When I beat him, Audley may retire. It’s up to him, of course, but that could be a real possibility.

“And if that does happen, I will be sad, although I will obviously be ­delighted with my victory.

“I am 100% confident I will beat him and if it turns out that he hangs his gloves up, it will be a shame for him.

“But it would mean that he has never achieved what he should have achieved and that will be sad for him.”

Harrison, 40, who won ­Olympic super-heavyweight gold in Sydney 12 years ago, knows he will be in the ‘Last Chance Saloon’ in Liverpool.

And British and ­Commonwealth champion Price said: “It hasn’t worked out the way Audley wanted and that, in many respects, makes it a dangerous fight for me.

“He always had pressure on him, but now, in this fight, he has none whatsoever.

“What’s he got to lose? His reputation couldn’t be any worse after his display against David Haye, could it?”

What remained of Harrison’s reputation was shredded inside three rounds by Haye in November 2010.

But the unbeaten Price, who won bronze at the Beijing Games, said: “If people want to judge Audley on the David Haye fight that’s up to them, but I won’t be ­doing that.

“I’m judging him at his best and when he is at his best, he is dangerous, so it is a good step up for me.”

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;12502521]Audley's not dangerous in any way.[/QUOTE] I think he's very dangerous -- a guy could laugh himself to death watching Fraudley's "fights." Sad matchup for Price indeed. Very sad.

I don't know, based on the Haye fight, Calderon could beat him Can't win without throwing punches

Harrison has a way of pulling it out when he's in last chance saloon, even if thats all he does. so im glad Price recognises that

Price is way too inactive. He should be fighting 4/5 times a year at this stage. Audley isn't dangerous; it's a garbage match-up. Price needs a chin-check.
