Lennox Lewis the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, believes Audley Harrison has the punching power to cause an upset in next Saturday’s all-British world heavyweight fight against David Haye.

Lewis who stared in the last heavyweight battle of Britain against Frank Bruno in 1993 at the Cardiff Arms Park, believes Harrison’s punching power gives him a big chance to create an upset against the WBA champion Haye in a sell out Manchester’s MEN Arena.

Lewis, speaking on BBC Radio 5 live’s Sportsweek said: “Audley realises this time it’s now or never. He sounds very confident.

“Audley’s got the power to stun the world and upset everybody’s thinking. It’s another great fight for Britain.” said Lewis.
.
“David Haye is a better boxer, he can get off his combinations quicker, but Audley is a consummate pro. He is an Olympic champion and that is a great pedigree.
.
“There have been a couple of stumbling blocks but he is still here. That shows me the desire to be accomplished and successful. I think it will be a close fight.”
.
“Audley needs to prove to us that he has got good stamina,” said the former three-time world champion and boxing legend.
.
“And he needs to throw a lot of punches and use that left jab and his size advantage and try to get through with one of those terrific left hands.
.
“Boxing’s an uncertainty. You never know what may happen if Audley’s able to contend with David Haye’s speed and neutralise it.” added Lewis.
