Dear Chris,

Season’s greetings; I’m wishing you and Team Eubanks a prosperous and successful new year.

I wanted to touch base and reach out to you, as I will never forget you kindly coming to see me back in the day, after I lost my unbeaten record to Danny Williams. You found me in my hotel and offered me advice from the heart. What you discussed was very helpful to my soul … so truly Chris, I thank you for that.
I hope my honest feedback helps you navigate your son’s next steps.

Harrison thinks Fury could beat Wladimir easier this time


By Scott Gilfoid: 2000 Olympic Super heavyweight gold medalist Audley Harrison thinks IBF heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) can potentially whip 40-year-old Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) easier in their rematch on July 9, then he did in their first fight last November in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Harrison thinks it will come down to hunger and motivation for the 27-year-old Fury. If he’s hungry and motivated like he was in the first fight with Wladimir, then he’ll beat him easier in their rematch. Harrison thinks it can be easier for Fury because he’ll be fighting in his own hometown in front of his fans at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK.

Harrison says it’s normally easier fighter fighters to beat someone that they’ve before. However, in this case, Fury barely beat Wladimir in their first fight, and that was with Wladimir not throwing punches.

Audley thinks Haye can beat Joshua

haye67By Scott Gilfoid: 2000 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Audley Harrison believes that former two division world champion David Haye has what it takes to potentially beat undefeated #2 WBC and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua (14-0, 14 KOs) to keep him from winning a world title.

Audley sees the 34-year-old Haye’s speed and punching power being a real problem for the 6’6” Joshua when/if they get around to fighting each other. Audley thinks that Haye needs several tune-up fights before he faces the 25-year-old Joshua, and he thinks next year would be an excellent time for the fight to take place.

harrison564By Scott Gilfoid: In a not so surprising move, 43-year-old British heavyweight Audley Harrison (31-7, 23 KOs) has announced his retirement from boxing. Harrison made the announcement on his official website.
