Audley Harrison Offered April 27th Date With Unbeaten Deontay Wilder

By James Slater

Veteran Audley Harrison, who bounced back yet again in claiming the “Prizefighter” tournament for a second time last month, has reportedly been offered a big opportunity of a fight with unbeaten “Bronze Bomber” Deontay Wilder.

According to Pat Sheehan of U.K tabloid The Sun, 2000 Olympic gold medallist Harrison, 31-6(23) is “mulling over the offer.” The fight would go ahead on the under-card of the April 27th showdown between Amir Khan and Julio Diaz in Sheffield.

According to the news piece, another veteran, fellow “Prizefighter” winner Martin Rogan is willing to step in and face Wilder, 27-0(27) if Harrison turns the offer down.

Harrison, who has shown he has as many lives as a cat, would likely earn a world title shot if he were to upset Wilder, a young fighter he has sparred with in recent times.

Needless to say, it would be some comeback for southpaw “A-Force” if he were to derail Wilder. Harrison looked headed towards retirement back in October, when he was blitzed inside a round by a then unbeaten David Price.
