News: Audley Harrison; Juan Manuel Marquez; The Utsey Boyz
Audley Harrison believes Martin Rogan's 'charging bull style' will suit him down to the ground on Saturday 6 December at the ExCeL London. The 2000 Olympic Champion knows he has to produce the goods against the rough undefeated Belfastman or the dream of a world title opportunity is well and truly over. Although he beat Brazilian George Arias in his last fight, it was a lack luster performance and Harrison has promised better..

Harrison said, "I know Rogan is rough and tough and will be applying lots of pressure,"
"Styles makes fights and the last guy was a terrible style for me to look good against. He was more concerned with hiding behind his gloves than attacking,"
"The crowd will get value on this one as Rogan is a charging bull. Like a matador, I will use my skills to tame and neutralize him before I end it in brutal fashion,"
"He has everything to gain, so he has nothing to fear, so it be a tough night but I will be prepared,"
He added, "I am putting in the work in camp and know my chances are running out. I will not give up on my desire to be the first Olympic gold medallist from Great Britain to go on and win a world title,"
"I know the road ahead will be tough and i will have to give my all to climb to the top of the heavyweight division, but it can be done,"
"As Barack Obama has shown in America, anything is possible with belief and commitment."
Nicky Cook v Stephen Foster Jnr headlines a blockbuster show that also features Enzo Maccarinelli challenging Johnathon Banks for the Vacant WBO World Cruiserweight title plus the return of Amir Khan against Oisin Fagan. Audley Harrison's exciting heavyweight showdown against Martin Rogan heads up the undercard along with Anthony Small, Derek Chisora, Jamie Cox and Liam, Michael and Ryan Walsh.
