    Official - Haye v Harrison - WBA HW Title

    No, just no. Harrison does not deserve this opportunity. It's appalling. He's still gabbling on about his effing "Destiny". God spare us - he's learned nothing and being Rewarded for it.

    WBA champion David Haye to fight Audley Harrison

    Harrison, 38, and Haye, 29, were once close friends


    David Haye will make the second defence of his WBA world heavyweight title against fellow Briton and 2000 Olympic gold medallist Audley Harrison.
    "I don't believe Audley deserves a chance but enough people want to see him finally destroyed, that is why this fight is happening," stated Haye.
    Harrison said: "I am ecstatic at getting a shot at the title. When I land my left hand on him he is done."
    The pair will meet at the MEN Arena in Manchester on 13 November.
    It will be the biggest all-British fight for a world heavyweight title since Lennox Lewis defended his WBC crown by stopping Frank Bruno in round seven of their 1993 contest in Cardiff.
    Haye, 29, won the WBA belt by beating giant Russian Nikolay Valuev on points in Germany on 7 November 2009.

    This is my destiny - on 13 November Audley Harrison will be champion of the world


    Audley Harrsion
    The former cruiserweight king, who has lost only once in 25 professional bouts, then defended his title by stopping American John Ruiz at the MEN Arena in April.
    "The fight will be a public execution," added Haye. "His resume is not as good as that of the last five people I have fought.
    "Everybody feels passionately that they want me to finally close the curtain on the joke that is the Audley Harrison show.
    "Audley has known me for years, he knows how devastating I am in the ring. He knows it first hand from sparring sessions. I'm no joke.
    "I'm the most devastating fighter on the planet. This is the time your career gets well and truly finished."
    Haye and Harrison are former friends and training partners, but the two men traded insults at a news conference to announce the fight on Tuesday morning.
    "He is a guy I groomed," added Harrison. "I have tasted his punches and power and he never hurt me in a training session.
    "This is my destiny - on 13 November Audley Harrison will be champion of the world and of that there is no doubt.
    "If David Haye thinks I've taken this fight strictly for a payday, he is in for a rude awakening."
    For 38-year-old Harrison, November's contest against Haye gives him the chance to fulfil his dream of winning a genuine world title.
    Harrison won super heavyweight gold at the Sydney Games and was tipped to become a world champion in the professional ranks.

    606: DEBATE
    How has Harrison, who boasts the conflicting nicknames 'A-Force' and 'Fraudley', earned his shot and does he deserve it?


    BBC Sport's Nabil Hassan
    But his career failed to take off in any meaningful way and looked to be over when he suffered a shock points loss to Belfast taxi driver Martin Rogan in December 2008.
    The 1998 Commonwealth Games champion reignited his career by winning Prizefighter last year and then scored a 12th-round knockout against Michael Sprott to win the EBU heavyweight title in April.
    Haye had hoped to meet either of the Klitschko brothers, who hold the other recognised world heavyweight titles, after beating Ruiz.
    Haye's manager, Adam Booth, held talks earlier this year with Vitali (WBC) and Wladimir (WBO and IBF) about a possible unification fight but these negotiations came to nothing.
    A contest between Haye and fellow Londoner Harrison, who were once close friends before a public war of words last year, will have box-office appeal in Britain, with the MEN Arena virtually guaranteed to sell out.

    This is the reason Boxing is dying a death, Haye should be fighting one of the Klitschko's not fighting washed up bums like Harrison

    I like this fight and I'm going to go to it. If it's anything like the Ruiz match it'll be a decent under-card as well.

    Im soooo disappointed.

    Harrison is a BUM. He's a fucking terrible fighter.

    Haye will wipe the floor with him.(which will be amusing I admit)

    I just think it's an awful decision. Just as he was making a name for himself on the international stage he goes and turns down a fight with Wladimir and accepts a fight with a guy who is completely unheard of outside of the UK.

    It highlights exactly why boxing is a dying sport. This will no doubt get **** loads of media attention over here and be marketed as another 'battle of britain' but in reality its just a fucking joke.

    Its a HUGE step back from Valuev and Ruiz.

    I used to be a Haye fan but i've now joined the 'Haye is ducking the Klitchkos' brigade. I cant just be about the money - either you want to be the best in your division or you dont.

    Fair enough.

    To me, it's akin to Floyd Patterson v Pete Rademacher. The World HW Champ versus the "World's Top Amateur". Inappropriate, Unwarranted and Undeserved.

    *OK, I still might watch it but really, people should vote with their feet and give it a miss so the promoter gets the message. If Harrison flukes a win, who is he likely to DEFEND against???*

    The sad thing is, with Haye's chin there is the possibility of an upset here.. The world would of course implode, but it could happen..
