14/10/2012 1 Min 30 Sec
The writing was on the wall for this all British encounter and it was the man from Liverpool that came out on top. As expected It was an early night for Audley Harrison as just after 1min and 30seconds David price landed a devastating right hand that sent Harrison leaning back against the ropes where he left himself open for a barrage of punches from Price. And that's what Price did, he hit Harrison with a combination that shook him and left him knocked out on the ropes, he then hit the canvas and showed no sign of getting up.
After Harrison had risen to his feet, Price was probably thinking about his next opponent. With promoter frank Maloney throwing various names out it would still seem that Matt Skelton is the favourite to take on the big Liverpudlian on the 1st December. A challenge has been set to Tyson Fury that does include a half a million pound pay day, but Fury seems to have his eyes firmly set on different opposition across the pond in the US.
As for Harrison that puts a cap on a career that has had its highs and lows, there was much criticism thrown Harrisons way after the fight and whether it was deserved or not, it makes no difference to his performance and his future in the sport.
