What a joke!
Harrison proves he's nothing more than hot air!

What a joke! What an absolute farce! Yep, David Haye’s victory over Audley Harrison shows just what a joke Harrison is and he should now realise it’s time to give up.
His ‘destiny’ was the win the WBA heavyweight world title from Haye but after watching Saturday’s thoroughly disappointing fight, it proves his ‘destiny’ is now to fall silently into the background and enjoy the windfall he has made from the Box Office encounter.
Harrison landed just one punch on Saturday in nearly three rounds of boxing. He displayed no fighting instinct when Haye was pummelling him on the ropes before he fell to the floor and the fight was over. And I must repeat, he landed just one punch! Just one! That’s pathetic!
Harrison is a guy who has always promised and never delivered. He was offered the chance of the lifetime and he didn’t try at all. He talked a good fight but never threatened to deliver it. He needs to end it now.
Many believe the challenger wasn’t a worthy contender in the first place as he is only ranked sixth in Britain let alone the world and many saw this as a mis-match. And they were right.
But what about Haye, what’s next for him? This successful defence confirmed one thing – in a weak heavyweight category Haye has the ability to dominate and has the ability to clean up, making a fortune along the way.
The only logical step is to fight the Klitschkos next year and unify the division before enjoying his planned retirement from October 2011.
The Ukrainian brothers have long dominated the heavyweights but they have never come across a fighter like David Haye and I doubt they’ll able to handle him. His speed and strength is incredible and he has that confidence that all the greats have had.
I hope that these fights will be sorted out and that the public will be able to enjoy a bout that has some substance to it. The heavyweight division has been calling out for something special and these fights could be just that.
That’s assuming Derek Chisora doesn’t upset Wladimir and win the IBF/WBO heavyweight title on December 11 in Mannheim, Germany.
