Audley Harrison makes a return to boxing alongside seven other heavyweights when they compete for the Prizefighter International Heavyweights III title. The tournament will be shown live on Sky Sports from the York Hall, Bethnal Green on Saturday night (February the 23rd).
Audley ‘A-Force’ Harrison (28W, 21KO, 6L) is a previous Prizefighter champion (he won Prizefighter Heavyweights III back in 2009) was last seen (not for very long mind you) in the ring with World heavyweight hope David Price.
His addition to this latest Matchroom Sport Prizefighter series has astounded many of his critics by defying the call to hang up his gloves and continue to box on. Despite losing two of his last three defeats the bookies have Harrison as second favourite to win this contest with BetVictor offering odds of 9/2.
33 year old American Travis Walker (39W, 31KO, 7L, 1D) is the bookies favourite to win this third edition of Prizefighter International Heavyweights edition. Walker’s claim to fame is that he was the first man on the planet to knock down the then undefeated Chris Arreola. Coral have Walker at 11/5 to be the last one standing at the end of the night.
Others to watch out for are Northern Irishman Martin Rogan (15W, 7KO, 3L) another former Prizefighter winner, Londoner Ian Lewison (6W, 3KO, 1L, 1D) and Polish heavyweight Albert Sosnowski (47W, 28KO, 5L, 2D) who fought Vitali Klitschko for the WBC Heavyweight title back in 2010 and is 11/2 from Stan James to lift the trophy.
