Audley Harrison wants rematch against David Price
By Scott Gilfoid: 41-year-old struggling heavyweight Audley Harrison (28-6, 21 KO’s) says he wouldn’t mind getting a rematch against unbeaten David Price, who knocked him out in the 1st round last October in another fight where Harrison threw almost no punches before getting taken out. Harrison did the same thing in his 3rd round knockout loss to former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye in November 2010 in this pay per view fiasco.
Harrison said to the dailystar.co.uk “I’m back, and I would love to fight David Price. He took me out and I would like the opportunity to avenge that…It made me look bad…It’s not over yet. I was too hyped up for the Price fight.”
No word from Price whether he’ll accept the rematch offer. I’m just wondering why Harrison didn’t add Haye’s name because he knocked him out just as bad. He might as well throw out his name for the heck of it, and he might get lucky. Sadly, I can actually see Price coming back and fighting Harrison again. I mean, he’s got to be running out of older fighters to beat up on by now, and he can start going with the retreads.
Harrison will be competing in the heavyweight Prizefighter tourney this Saturday night at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, in London, United Kingdom. I don’t expect Harrison to win, but he’ll be taking part in it for what it’s worth. I’m picking 6’4 ½” Travis Walker to win the tourney because he’s got the best power and size combination going for him.
Walker is basically a three round fighter, but he’s very dangerous for three rounds. He might have to stamina problems going from one fight to another, but I think with the rest breaks he’ll be okay. The heavyweights in the tourney are pretty mediocre, so that’s another reason why I see Walker beating all of them, including Harrison.
