Boxing: Defeat ends Harrison as a prospect
Monday 17 April 2006
Audley Harrison will need to take a long and hard look at the painful reality of his once-promising boxing career before entering the ring again.
On Friday night at a casino in Rancho Mirage, California, Harrison lost for the second time, and for the second time he looked far more intent on surviving without taking a meaningful punch than winning the fight. Dominick Guinn, of the United States, triumphed on points, but both fighters were abysmal and have little future in the heavyweight division's higher echelons.
The 2000 Olympic champion may return to London and begin issuing challenges to Britain's top heavyweights. But Friday's fight proved that his days as a prospect are most definitely over.
