David Haye Steamrolls Audley Harrison In Three Rounds

"Ask around, I told everyone that I would knock him out in three rounds," Haye claimed. "No way was he going into the fourth round"

David Haye proved what most critics and fans knew from the start; that Audley Harrison did not deserve to be in the same ring with him. The WBA champion made his second successful title defense, knocking out Harrison in a dominant third round.

The first two rounds were very slow, causing the 20,000 plus fans at the MEN Arena to reign down boos on both men. Harrison hardly threw any punches, and tried to fight off the backfoot and counter. Haye moved forward, but was very cautious of being reckless. In the second, Haye received a few cheers by catching Harrison with several straight right hands.

When Haye let his hands go with bad intentions in the third, Audley Harrison had no chance. Up close, Haye stunned him with a short right hook. Harrison tried to cover up, but Haye mixed the hooks with uppercuts and dropped him to his knees.

Harrison just barely beat the count. His reward was another quick Haye assault, which resulted in the referee stepping in as Harrison reeled back into the ropes.

In the post-fight interview, David Haye boasted that he chose the third to open up because he and his family bet huge money on that round. He claimed that Harrison could have been disposed of in round one.

“Ask around, I told everyone that I would knock him out in three rounds,” Haye claimed. “No way was he going into the fourth round”

Regarding the Klitschkos, David Haye promised to fight either brother in early 2011.

“I know there’s no where else for those guys to go,” Haye said. “They’re fighting the Hasim Rahmans and Shannon Briggs. They’re fighting the guys everyone’s bored of…No one wants to see them fight anonymous Americans…They have to come to the table and talk sense.

The win improves David Haye’s record to 25-1 with 23 KOs. Audley Harrison falls to 27-5 with 20 KOs.
