Whilst there may be a level of perserverance, he has also benefited from a great deal of luck of late. Better & more deserving fighters have had fewer opportunities.

Not to mention the fact that the only reason he could possibly hope for a world title shot is because he happens to be British, just like the incumbent WBA champ. If Haye hadn't suceeded in defeating Valuev Audley would have to make at least a couple of more defences of his title, seeing as he not got a top 15 ranking with nay of the major sanctioning bodies.

And before you point out that Sosnowski didn't defend his belt before landing an unmerited title opportunity, I doubt Vitali will be in the same situation again, where he requires an opponent whilst he awaits for himself or his brother to agree terms with Haye. If Haye doesn't fight Audley, his dream is over.

Why should the defeat to Rogan of been it for Audley Harrison..? The fact of the matter is, Audley Harrison has never been beat up or out classed inside of the ring. All of his defeats have been to his own mental issues, and just simply underachiveing..........!

Why should he retire after a defeat..?

Can't a boxer loose a match anymore...?

So he's been caught by a lucky punch, which Michael Sprott threw with his ****ing eye's closed....

So what if he's been knocked out, he came back from it and avenge that defeat.

Anyone who questions Audley Harrison mentality, and says he's weak. Must be ****ing stupid, its one of the hardest things to do in boxing.

Avenge a devastating knock-out loss..!

You talk about better or more deserving fighters, are these the same fighters that come into the ring like fat ****ing cunts..?

Do you mean guys like Hasim Rahman..?

I don't know who the **** your talking about.

Boxing is a business, and Audley Harrison just so happens to be, a business man who can fight.

The fact of the matter is, Audley Harrison is still here. He had to win the prize fighter, and he did. No matter what fashion it was in, Audley Harrison did what he had to do....

He had to win against Michael Sprott, and did. Injured, but he never gave up mentally.

No one has diminished Audley Harrison's light, no one has beaten him up inside of the ring, he has never took beatings like Danny Williams.

Where people have called his retirement..

Nope.

A solitary defeat should never spell the end of a man's title hopes.
However at the age of 37 Harrison lost for a fourth time - he hadn't even won a domestic belt. He was lucky to get another shot, which he did not merit. That's not up for debate.

If he had fought better oppostition he would've had quite a few more losses. He was also quite fortunate against Bonin, that the fight was called of prematurely.

I like Audley but be honest is he or has he ever been world class? If profesional boxing was done with headguards and padded gloves then yes. But its not, I personally think any one of our 4 or 5 prospect would beat him, but saying that boxing without audley would be poorer!

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Or did he win that belt after what should've been the final defeat in his coffin - that aforementioned defeat to Rogan?

Whats Rogan doing now..?

Martin Rogan beat Audley Harrison, he not defeat.

Being beaten and defeated are two different things.

Audley Harrison won the European Belt vire, beating Michael Sprott.

Have you got a dictionary handy? How can a defeat and being beat be different?
