Audley Harrison: David Price is a tougher opponent than Tyson Fury
AUDLEY HARRISON admits he has “lived a lie” during his career – but insists he will end it on a high this weekend
Since winning a gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Harrison (28-5) has often failed to back up his bragging with powerhouse performances that were promised.
He makes his final stand when he challenges British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (13-0) at Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday.
Harrison, 40, said: “This is not talk this time. I talk a good fight I know, but I am coming to walk through him and separate myself from the pack.
“I can understand when people don’t believe me, but I talk like how I see it.
“You can’t live a lie when you’re on that starting line and I have lived a lie in the amateurs and professional game.
“I did just enough to win because I had that talent and chip on my shoulder to pull it out, but that ignorant guy doesn’t exist anymore.
“This is my last chance saloon.”
Price, 29, won a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and their clash is the first time two British Olympians have fought each other professionally.
The scouser who will have 7000 fans roaring him on in his home city is getting recognised on the world stage and next year looks certain to challenge for a world title provided he remains undefeated.
Harrison added: “David is a harder opponent than Tyson Fury and one of the best prospects in the world. He has the pedigree that Fury doesn’t have.
“If I was looking for an easy option I wouldn’t be fighting David. I would run a mile, but I really believe I have something left.
“I have looked in David’s eyes and he knows I am coming in there to fight.”
The talent stacked 14 fight card also includes a vacant British cruiserweight title fight between Shane McPhilbin (8-3) and Jon Lewis Dickinson (11-2), Chris Edwards (17-14-4) making a British and Commonwealth flyweight title defence against local Kevin Satchell (8-0) and a British light-welterweight title eliminator between Adil Anwar (17-1) and Dale Miles (13-1).
There are a few tickets remaining and they can be purchased £190 (VIP), £90 (ringside), £60, £40 at frankmaloney.com or 0844 8000 400.
The show will be broadcast live from 6.45pm by the home of boxing BoxNation (Sky 437/Virgin 546). Join now atwww.boxnation.com. The bout will be screened live in the USA by WealthTV.
