Audley Harrison Vows To Continue For Himself, His Fans

By Phil D. Jay

Former European heavyweight champion Audley “A-Force” Harrison is planning to return to the boxing ring this summer and believes he still has something to offer to fight game, even after his humiliating performance against David Haye last November.

The US-based Londoner, who has five defeats in 32 professional contests, doesn’t want to end his career on a negative and is back in training to hopefully get a return to the ring in America this summer, as he looks to start re-building his damaged reputation.

“I am 39 and couldn’t live with myself unless I gave it one more go to finish my career on a high,” Harrison told

"It's a humbling feeling knowing I am a vilified figure in boxing, but I owe it to my fans who believe in me and I owe it to myself to give it one more go.

"It will be a long road back and I have been in this position before. I am not a quitter. If I was I would have left boxing a long time ago,” he added.

It will indeed be a very tough task for Harrison to repair the scars of that night at the MEN against WBA champion Haye and I just cant see how anything will have changed since then. Harrison will have a couple of fights, make a little money, before his lack of heart gets him again and hopefully he will then get the message that he is not world-class.
