Former European Heavyweight Champion and Olympic Super-Heavyweight Gold Medallist Audley Harrison has called on David Haye to ‘man up’ and fight him. Harrison and has promoter Bary Hearn have revealed that the terms for what they are billing as the biggest fight in British history have been agreed and that they are only waiting for Haye to put pen to paper and sign the contract. Hearn has also said that the fight will be worth £10million ($15.5 million). Harrison told Sky Sports that:
“I’m about as bored as every other fight fan about hearing why you won’t accept fights, what are we in this game for…I say to try and win titles and create a legacy but if it’s money you want then outside of the Klitschko fight I’m the only guy that makes you money. I am accepting the terms you have offered me and now we will see what you are made of…So let’s stop with the bull******ng, man up and get this fight signed. So bring on the Battle of Britain and I will be the Hayebreaker come November 13th.”
This may be just a taster to the war of worlds that the two charismatic former friends will use to hype their fight but it may also be a sign that a relunctant Haye is keeping his options open, with rumors that the WBA Champion could be open to facing Tomasz Adamek or Alexander Povetkin.
