So it seems that getting older does not necessarily make you wiser and you do not always learn the lessons that life gives you. Just take British heavyweight boxer Audley Harrison, who is considered by almost everybody who knows the sport, as the laughing-stock of boxing.
While we all expected Audley Harrison to hang up his gloves, after being knocked out in just 82 seconds by David Price, it seems that he still believes he has something left in the tank. It has been confirmed that Audley Harrison will make his return to the ring next month.
Audley Harrison is one of the eight men who will be taking part in the next Prizefighter tournament, which will take place at York Hall, Bethnal Green, on 23 February. The 41-year-old has history with the competition, after winning it back in 2009, before then going on to win the European heavyweight title and earning a shot at the world title.
As well as Audley Harrison, the Prizefighter heavyweight tournament will also feature 41-year-old Northern Irishman Martin Rogan, 33-year-old American Travis Walker and 31-year-old Briton Ian Lewison. If Audley Harrison fails to win then that truly will bring an end to his disappointing career.
