Boxers have a habit of coming out of retirement.

Many perceive they?ve called it a day before their time is really up. Others miss the day to day grind the sport demands, but has anyone ever come back as quickly as Audley Harrison?

Just three weeks after being knocked out by Deontay Wilder, inside 70 seconds, Audley is back boasting that he needs to fulfill his ambitions.

Discussing the comeback, Audley, now 41 years of age, is quoted as having remarked,

?I wrestled with it for a few weeks, and spoke to everyone from the Boxing Board, to Lennox Lewis, David Haye, my dad, my wife and many others?ultimately seeing my son born crystallized my decision.?

?If I don?t get up and try again, everything I?ve stood for would mean nothing. I can?t walk away with that performance. If I do, it would haunt me until I?m old and grey.?


Do I sniff another Heavyweight Prizefighter competition somewhere around the corner?
