Harrison believes he’s acid test for Fury and Price

Posted on May 30, 2012

Audley Harrison has declared himself the ‘only logical fight’ for British heavyweight hopefuls Tyson Fury and David Price, if the pair cannot agree to fight each other.

Harrison, who returned to the ring with a fourth round stoppage of Ali Adams on Saturday, believes he is the only true test for the undefeated prospects and has called on their promoters to get in touch with him.

‘Tyson Fury and David Price are both doing great, beating who they have in front of them and doing it in exciting fashion,’ said Harrison. ‘If they are not prepared to fight each other, the only other logical fight to be made is against me.

‘If Sky Sports, or Channel 5 accepts anyone else, I think the boxing public and casual sporting fan will be genuinely disappointed.

‘Additionally, I cannot see any other boxer who the Boxing Board can nominate for the British title other than myself and I’ll be making my case this week.

‘I need a test to see what I have left and they need a test to see if they are ready to move onto bigger and better things. A crossroads fight with everything to fight for will capture the public’s imagination.

‘Win, lose, or draw; I’m leaving everything I have in the ring. Both Frank Maloney (Price’s promoter) and Mick Hennessey (Fury’s promoter) know how to contact me.’

Price is expected to make a first defence of his British crown in September and Harrison is known to be under consideration, along with Matt Skelton, as a potential opponent.
