Boxing: Harrison lines up return to the ring
Friday 20 January 2012
Audley Harrison is set to make a comeback in April. The 40-year-old has not fought since a feeble showing against the then WBA heavyweight champion, David Haye, in November 2010 but will face Ali Adams in a fight, nominally for the International Masters heavyweight title, at the Brentwood Centre in Essex on 14 April.
Harrison said: "I've never been more disappointed in myself as I felt that night [against Haye]... Anyone can lose, but I didn't lose with dignity, so I was never going to retire on that performance. I've been sitting on the shelf for 15 months, so I'm grateful for this opportunity... with my right arm now healed, I'll have too much for Ali Adams. I intend to show I have a future in the game."
Baghdad-born Adams, 30, won the Masters title by beating Vjekoslav Bajic at the York Hall in Bethnal Green last month.
