Heavyweights David Price and Audley Harrison were face-to-face Wednesday at a head-to-head press conference at the Cafe Sports England in Liverpool in advance of Saturday’s showdown at the Liverpool Echo Arena, which can be seen in the U.S. on WealthTV.
Audley Harrison: I have gone full circle and my spirit is renewed for boxing. Some of the fights I lost, I was fighting the system and haven’t been able to control my emotions. The only person who can make me retire is David Price and he will have to beat me with skill and ability.
David Price: I am delighted to hear that Audley has had a good training camp and has renewed spirit because I would gain no satisfaction from beating up on him like David Haye did. I want him to come and fight and provide the fans with value for money.
