Harrison doesn't deserve the fight.

He ought to be looking at the likes of ***ton and Chisora - they are about his level, maybe even above him.

We were all shocked at Hearn willing to put a low level journeyman in with Hide, here you have another journeyman, and you want Haye to fight him.

Double standards or what!

I thought David was lacking guts. Boy was I ever wrong. My sincere apologies to David.

Here's to hoping he has his will sorted before he tries to conquer his Everest.

That sums it all up really.

Who gives a **** what sky think (assuming this is even true of course) when a massive heavyweight unification fight with two massive punchers and real venom for each other is concerned?!!

of course sky would want it, it would be a real big fight for the casual fans to get excited about , there would be big attention on it.

sky would love it , i dont want it but anything is better then a valuev rematch.

The world needs to see Audley destroy these buffoons who hold world titles at heavyweight. First step regain his old world championship and next Haye.

There is nothing wrong with Haye versus Harrison at all. It would be a big fight in the UK, both are really well known now. I would watch it.
It makes sense for both, Harrison would give a rematch, Haye would make big bucks, fighting at home in a fight he could well win. Put the brothers on the back burner for now. Haye could be ruined early against either Klitschko.

I would rather see this fight than Valuev again. Zzzz
It would bring attention to boxing again and give Haye another fight up at heavy weioght to get used to the additional weight he has put on and will face. It also means tat the Klitschkos will be a bit older by the time he gets to them, which will be to his advantage.

If Haye runs versus Valuev, what's he gonna do against a guy like Audley? A guy with a sledgehammer left hand, a guy with great inside game, great outside game, defence, stamina, power, chin, heart and speed? Hayefaker won't sign this fight, he knows he get blasted out, early.

Jesus. The thought of this happening is very scary.

Imagine Haye coming out for the 1st and tripping over his bootlace somehow landing face first onto a Harrison punch.
Fraudley the new WBA HW Champ of the World.
**** shudders ****

This is one Haye fight I wouldn't buy Sky. Don't do it.

You wouldn't, but casual punters would. Haye's strategy so far has been to get as high a profile as possible - particularly via the masterstroke freakshow with Valuev - as quickly as possible. His stated aim of being retired in under two years means getting as much exposure as possible in the mainstream media, and an Audley fight gives him that much more effectively - and with much less risk - than a fight with a top ten fighter who isn't called Klitschko. Think Calzaghe/ Manfredo, and then ask yourself if it's quite so unthinkable. Haye gets his profile raised further by an easy nights work, and then goes back to the Klits with extra bargaining chips.
