Audley Harrison wants Chisora: 'If I can't stop him within 10 rounds, I'll donate my purse'

Scott Heavey

Audley Harrison can't let go of what are now impossible dreams, as he's trying to talk his way into a fight with Dereck Chisora.

Just when you hope he's out, Audley Harrison tries to crawl back in. The 2000 Olympic gold medalist, whose pro career fell far short of hype and expectations and has in recent years become a sad display of Prizefighter victories and deer in the headlights performances against guys like David Haye, David Price, and Deontay Wilder.

Harrison, now 42, is still talking about potentially winning a world title, and wants to take a shot at Dereck Chisora, the reigning European heavyweight champion and one of the ten or so best heavyweights in the sport. He says if he can't knock out Chisora within 10 rounds, he'll donate his purse to charity:

I guess the good thing here is that Audley might donate some money to charity. He's a nice guy and nobody really has a bad word to say about him as a person. He stays in shape, he works hard, but when the bell rings against good opponents, he not only comes up short now, but he just can't seem to convince his body and mind to cooperate the way he'd like. He didn't show up against Haye, didn't show up against Wilder, didn't show up against Price.

I think Audley Harrison really does want this fight. I think that right now, away from the ring, he thinks he'd stop Chisora within 10 rounds. I think Audley believes in his heart, right now, away from the ring, that if he got the chance in two months, he could beat Wladimir Klitschko. It's just that then the lights come on on fight night, and the Audley Harrison of the pre-fight press conferences and media workouts is gone.
