Bunce was right all those months ago.

Audley belives in himself and has shown that he can fight.He is the bigger guy and can bang a bit when he wants to.I like Haye but he is hyped up a lot.Audley will be a big underdog but it would not be the biggest shock ever if he pulled it off.

Not ever but it would have to rank up there in recent times. Seriously...its Audley Harrison.

Monte Barrett was ... sorry, Coleman Barrett was dominating him in the Prizefighter final.

Audley Harrison has the ability to beat David Haye in WBA title fight (Telegraph)


I have to admit that back in the year 2000, after Audley Harrison had won the super-heavyweight boxing gold medal at the Sydney Olympics, I confidently predicted that he would become a professional world heavyweight champion.

Ring leader: Audley Harrison floors Danny Williams in 2006, one of the super-heavyweight boxer's better moments during a chequered career


You can scoff now, but at the time he seemed to have all the credentials. He was 6ft 5in of muscular power, he had a punch and, most intriguing of all, he did not just rely on strength, he was actually a skilful boxer. He would emulate Lennox Lewis, of that I was sure. My only concern was that he was already 28, but heavyweights mature late.

He would follow in the pantheon of Olympic champs who went on to win the big one, like Lewis, Ali, Frazier, Foreman and Holyfield.



I was not entirely alone in my forecast, the respected Ring magazine concurred with me in 2003 before Audley started losing his way. Then, of course, defeat here and there against opponents who were barely household names in their own houses began to make him something of a laughing stock, a talent to bemuse. His guarantee was that he would nearly always let you down. Mind you, Audley talked a good after-fight; there was always an excuse or injury.

But now, and he will be 39 years old when it happens, on Nov 13 at the MEN Arena in Manchester, he will challenge David Haye in an all-British fight for the World Boxing Association championship of the world.

The Haye camp, having failed to fix up a fight with either of the Klitschko brothers, has, I would imagine, somewhat reluctantly agreed to take on the largely discredited Harrison. While the former Olympic champion has nothing to lose, it is a risky venture for Haye. If he wins, so what? If he loses, his own credibility goes down the drain, but money talks and I think the fight will attract a great deal of interest.

Back in April Harrison became the European champion, knocking out Michael Sprott in the last few moments of the fight, having been behind on points, which did regain him some credibility. It is a title he has since relinquished while undergoing surgery for a shoulder injury, which he maintained he suffered early against Sprott, restricting him to box virtually one-handed for most of the contest.

And so here I go again, I forecast that Harrison can beat Haye and win a world title he has dreamed about for the past 11 years.

It is a clever piece of matchmaking by Harrison's manager, Eddie Hearn, son of well-known sporting entrepreneur Barry. His man will of course be taking the peanuts end of the purse, but what a chance for him.

Harrison will be very much the outsider, but he is by no means the biggest long shot among British heavyweights bidding for a world crown.

Among the more fanciful challengers was Richard Dunn, once our domestic champion, whose clever, perhaps brave, management got their man a fight against the great Muhammad Ali over 30 years ago. The bout took place in Munich, and Dunn's promotional team went to the interesting lengths of hiring a hypnotist to try to convince big Richard who, despite being a former paratrooper, could be somewhat diffident before a fight, that he could and would win against the great man.

It lasted five rounds, and while Dunn did indeed box like a man with no fear and caught the great Ali with a few decent punches, he found himself on the canvas no fewer than five times before being knocked out. You cannot, apparently, hypnotise chins to become stronger than they are.

After the fight Richard, who normally suffered from a slight stammer, did the most fluent interview with me that he had ever done, the stammer seemingly completely absent. Unfortunately it returned later, when the full effects of the knockout cleared from his mind.

I also remember interviewing the hypnotist who tried his best to convince me that Dunn could win the fight. I had a feeling at the time he was trying to use his expertise in doing so but I remained alert and did not believe it for a moment.

However, I do believe that Harrison can beat Haye. Look into my eyes, not around the eyes, look into my eyes …

The OP is either Audley himself, a relative of Audley, or just an over obssesive fan.

Audley has done nothing to warrant such passion. In fact Audley is anti-passion and anti-boxing, he is scared to fight, scared to get hit and is not a natural fighter. He is the reluctant boxer.
