Default Someone please tell me about Audley Harrison...

...why has he underachieved so much, even putting his bad chin aside...?

This guy had the talent to be much better - one of the best current HWs, right?, and that's not saying much, so what's gone wrong?

He has no heart or desire or bottle to fight. All the other tools but he lacks these qualities.

Lack of motivation.

Audley would love to put his bad chin aside! Maybe then he would be a contender instead of a mug.

IMHO as a pro he had it too easy, too quicky. He was never a 'hungry' boxer.

Lack of motivation?

Why? He doesn't like the colour of money?

A LOT of money!...

Maybe not enough to get his head beaten off.

I like the guy even though most do not. He could still be a contender, he is not over old for an heavy and has not had an hard career. We could see him fighting for another five or six year if he comes back competative. I hope he is now focused and ready to right the wrongs in his career, he had a huge wake up call with the car crash.




P.S. Good to see you back.

At HW you can't put the bad chin issue aside. Also he doesn't punch his weight. Harrison is a huge man so he can hurt other fighters, but for a man of his considerable size he doesn't punch hard enough.

I think he can punch hard but instead of going for a KO he and risking getting hit he just prances around kinda like a poor mans Wlad.




I think the biggest prob Audley has is he does not like being hit in the face by people. Neither do I but when you are a boxer it can be a problem.

Believed his own hype at the start of his pro career, should have gone with ****** then and concentrated on training instead of being a celebrity. He must have good skills to win olympic gold but he hasn't developed enough since then.

Exactly. You can't call a man a coward if he steps in a boxing ring. But he is too hesitant and fearful, McGuigan was scathing in his opinion of Harrison after one of his fights (I can't recall which one) and rightly so.
