40 year old British boxer Audley Harrison has vowed to box on and give it one more attempt at winning a world title before he finally retires. Audley was wiped out in 82 seconds against David Price earlier this month but he insists that he can still give it another push.
Britain had high hopes for Audley Harrison when he returned from the 2000 Olympics in Sydney with a gold medal. When he turned professional, people were convinced that Audley Harrison could be the new successor to Lennox Lewis and become a British world champion.
People have been talking about Audley Harrison retiring from boxing for years but he is adamant that he can give it one last shot. Harrison took to his official Twitter account to say, “It's official...I've decided to carry on. One more shot at glory. It could be over; next fight will tell me. See you in a ring real soon."
Audley Harrison’s defeat against David Price was his sixth loss in a career that boasts 28 wins from 34 fights, with 21 knockouts. Audley Harrison does have a mean left hook but his fear of being hit in the face and his inability to work behind the jab means his future in boxing is very bleak.
