David Price: Audley Showed What Not To Do as a Pro

By Joe Delaney, courtesy of The Daily Star

DAVID PRICE has revealed his blueprint for success as a paid heavyweight – do the opposite to Audley Harrison.

The Olympic medallists will meet for Price’s British and Commonwealth titles at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on October 13 with their careers going in opposite directions.

Harrison won gold in Sydney 12 years ago but flopped after banking £1m from the BBC when he joined the paid ranks, reaching rock-bottom with his pathetic surrender to David Haye in 2010.

The fanfare greeting 29-year old Price’s arrival from the amateurs was quieter, but the big-hitting Beijing bronze medallist has impressed in his 13 victories.

He regards Harrison as a role model in reverse saying: “He has the talent but he more or less wrote the book on what not to do when he turned professional.

“He took too much on like promoting and managing rather than concentrating on what he’s good at.

“I’ve looked at what he did and told myself I’d do it like this instead. “Audley was a superstar as soon as he turned professional. I haven’t been – I’ve had to work for it.”

harrison had talent but he chose to promote & manage himself early on. he was making money but was picking his own opponents & it hurt him when he stepped up. if he let someone guide him from the start…

how in ****'s name can they let Harris fight? Most pub generals could KO Audley at the Ploughman's lunch line! Price is a bum for fighting this guy. It shows where he thinks he is at to take on this…

Yep, getting KTFO by Michael Sprott is a no-no.
