Wilder will beat him like Haye did. Audley’s prizefighter victims were all well past their best days and 3 rounds each so those mean nothing.Posted April 6, 2013 11:48 pm

Wilder is rubbish. He literally would not last a round with any of Auldley’s Prizefighter victims (all six of them).Posted April 5, 2013 2:50 pm
It’s been over for a long time.Posted April 5, 2013 2:18 pm
It really is a tired old line from Audley. Still, as the article points out, 2nd and 3rd rate opposition is where he does best so his chances against Wilder must be at least as good as they are in Prizefighter tourneys…Posted April 5, 2013 1:15 pm
It was over a long time ago.Posted April 5, 2013 12:04 pm
Big Aud is delusional. The fame went to his head when he won that gold and still hasn’t been knocked out of it (surprising, the number of times he’s been down). He had the tools but never the mentality and now he’s merely mental. Fair play to him for carrying on but he’s always been a rabbit in the headlights when someone with a bit of power is throwing back, he’s been down heavily many times alreeady – this is getting dangerous now. That said would be hilarious if he actually somehow pulled this off and ended up in a ring with Wlad.Posted April 5, 2013 10:52 am
Then it’s over indeed. Bye, no one will miss you.Posted April 5, 2013 9:59 am
Hey Rod didn’t Wilder lose to some 5 foot 11 in Italian in the Olympics, You have to be a hype job if someone 8 inches shorter than you kicks your buttPosted April 5, 2013 9:55 am
God I hope he does not end up like Holyfield. All respect for chasing the dream.Posted April 5, 2013 8:22 am
Audley is the best, e just had a bad luckPosted April 5, 2013 8:00 am

Hope the British lyrics to The Anacreontic Song don’t upset Wilder too much. For the benefit of our American cousins they go:
“Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo”Posted April 5, 2013 7:35 am
Post fight interview after being brutally KO’d: I’m gonna sit down with my trainer, my wife and kids and see where we go from here.
Two months down the line: I’ve still got a lot to give to the sport of boxing. I’m feeling fitter than ever and I’m confident that this time I will become world champion….Posted April 5, 2013 7:20 am
It’s over, after all he has achieved? Come on Audry, don’t
Audley to win inside three…quick blast out by him. He will then be projected in the top ten and easy take care of Fury for a warm up before he takes on the Klit brothers. Reckon he has a chance to beat both of them to unify the titles and he will go down as the greatest comeback boxer of all time.
Then he hears nine ten out….. and poor Audley realises it was only a monetary dream whilst being ko’d by Wilder LOL.
Good luck to him though he might surprise us all.Posted April 5, 2013 4:44 am
Wilder is freaking fast and powerful but 6’7 at 220 – 225 is too light. I would rather see him at 235 as long as he does not slow down too much or get gassed. I just think big punchers like, Lucas browne, Mago, and Stiverne would break him just because he seems too thin and has bambie like legs.Posted April 5, 2013 1:35 am
Totally agree with tarks first comment. Wilder easily for mine and still niot tested. Audley a shame cos I’d have likled tohave watched him have a good carer but Wilder better. that said it doesn’t say much cos at 51 I’m in line to be Wilders next ‘Stepping up” opponent!Posted April 5, 2013 12:24 am
Jeff Sorby…. “Audley has a huge advantage in skillset for this fight” … How do you figure that??? Because he’s such a good defender? Because of all his skillful offensive weapons that are so sharp? If this fight went 12 rounds Deontay would win by a wide margin — but it’s only going until Wilder gets a really good lick in.
Experience and great opposition doesn’t equate to terrific skills. It can mean you’ve had the resistance beaten out of your chin and are prostituting your body for the money your name can still command. It’s a legitimate way to pad your bank account after a long tough career.Posted April 4, 2013 11:59 pm
Audley got his world title shot… He earned that much, but he failed miserably against Haye. If through an act of God he scores a lottery shot upset, such as Hasim Rahman leveling Lewis, he won’t get another title shot. Promoters aren’t stupid.
Harrison says, “Deontay has not been tested as a pro.” And that will still be true on April 28th.Posted April 4, 2013 11:39 pm
two big men with huge punches but harrison gets scared when faced with a guy who can hurt him. Wilder will Ko him or by some miracle get countered but i doubt itPosted April 4, 2013 10:36 pm
harrison ko wilder 1.Posted April 4, 2013 10:03 pm
Micheal Caine North Korea, you are only supposed to blow the bloody doors off.Posted April 4, 2013 8:21 pm
I agree to a point Scotsman, but I’m not sure if its stick, if it was, he would put up a better fight. He looks intimidated and scared when he’s in with a big puncher, but at the same time, he keeps signing to fight them, I don’t get it …Posted April 4, 2013 7:33 pm
It’s been over you bug eyed fool..All fighters deserve respect however fraudley is not a fighter he’s a load his mother should’ve swallowedPosted April 4, 2013 6:20 pm
UK fight fans really need to get behind there man Audley thats all i got to sayPosted April 4, 2013 5:49 pm
All I want to say is, if he is true to his word and this is it, if he loses, then thank goodness, because it has been a long and sorry saga following Audley’s troublesome career as a boxer trying to make it to the next level.Posted April 4, 2013 5:25 pm
Took me since the Olympics to come round but the more he bigs himself up and loses the more I like him. He takes an immense amount of stick and has been knocked out badly. But to still get in the ring to chase his dream at his age? I’ve nothing but admiration for the man to come back so many times. How many of us have had dreams and aspirations but never had the courage/drive/fortitude to follow it through? He may never get to live his dream but at least he won’t regret never trying!
Wilder KO5 HarrisonPosted April 4, 2013 5:18 pm
To be fair, this is a step up for Wilder. Perhaps not as big as you may like but a step up all the samePosted April 4, 2013 5:10 pm
I don’t know which is worse. Harrison being recycled over and over again, or Wilder fighting washed up fighters or those who never were. Harrison needs to call it quits and Wilder needs to step up badly and quickly and fight some competition.Posted April 4, 2013 5:03 pm
There is just no denting this blokes confidence, fair play to himPosted April 4, 2013 4:59 pm
If audley can get settled in and not blasted out early it would be intresting to see if he could ask wilders chin some questions. A force had a decent left, would love to see if its still therePosted April 4, 2013 4:57 pm
What point of Haye winning an eliminator to fight Wlad? He cant win and would have to accept mandatory challenger money for another loss. Haye doesn’t seem like he cares for anything but money so this makes no sense.Posted April 4, 2013 4:46 pm
bigger news haye is in talks to fight kubrat pulev that will be heavyweight fight of the year and leave the winner WBA & IBF Mandatory.Posted April 4, 2013 4:37 pm
Wilder is just too strong and fresh for him ….. Wilder by the 4th.Posted April 4, 2013 4:32 pm
Audley is poor against heavy hitters, but is wilder a heavy puncher. Lets wait till he KOs someone who is alive. Not convinced on wilder and if Audley gets this right he could pull of a suprisePosted April 4, 2013 4:25 pm
I don’t mind paying to see Audley get knocked out to be honest.Posted April 4, 2013 3:27 pm
Here’s the thing, I was impressed with Audley when he first came out, but man, he sure fell apart on a huge stage.Posted April 4, 2013 3:04 pm
They were all over Arreola when he was about where Wilder is now. You’d think GBP would have the pull, but no one seems to be biting on Wilder. I’m guessing there is a reason for it. European heavies are just better.Posted April 4, 2013 3:02 pm
Whether you like Wilder or not, he’s an American fighter and is moving up in an otherwise boring heavyweight division. U.S. fight fans should have the opportunity to see one of their own fighters televised in a match like this. Once again, the American boxing establishment (SHO, HBO, and ESPN) shoots itself in the foot by screwing its own fans.Posted April 4, 2013 2:58 pm
Audley won’t last beyond two rounds, Wilder knocked him on his ass in sparring so what hope does Audley have?
Audley never rose above British domestic level, but, at least he and his team made a fortune out of the gullible British public.Posted April 4, 2013 2:48 pm
And… here we go again. He needs a new pre-fight promotional gag, this one is wearing thin.Posted April 4, 2013 2:36 pm
Can we believe Harrison this time? Its about time wilder took a step up though so far he can knock out bums but thinking about it guess its going to happen again. Sorry audley I wanted to see you be a champ but something’s are not meant to bePosted April 4, 2013 2:25 pm
Swedish Boxing Fan
Deontay Wilder (27-0, 27 KO’s), knock-out Audley Harrison cold, take him out and please early. Just retire him so we are done with that over-hyped ex-contender. Wilder has power but needs more expearence and is on his way.Posted April 4, 2013 2:14 pm
What Brandon said!Posted April 4, 2013 2:11 pm
Yes, we’ve all heard this before. I do hope he comes ready to fight and tries to win. For all his faults, Harrison is, by far, better than anyone Wilder has fought. I hope Audley tries to test the new guy.Posted April 4, 2013 2:04 pm
how much u getting dudePosted April 4, 2013 1:48 pm
You’ve said that too many times. Terrible fighterPosted April 4, 2013 1:47 pm
It’s been over for awhile, Audley.Posted April 4, 2013 1:39 pm
