Ali Adams will defend his International Masters heavyweight title against Audley Harrison at the Brentwood Centre in Essex on the 14th April.
London based, Baghdad-born Adams won the title by stopping Vjekoslav Bajic in round 3 at the York Hall Bethnal Green in December. Adams, 30, has won 13 of his 17 fights with five wins coming by knock-out and believes he will defeat the former European champion and send him into retirement.
“Audley is a joke. His fight with Haye was an embarrassment and he still wants to make a comeback. said Adams.
“I will give him such a beating that Audley will see he does not belong in a boxing ring again.
This is the beginning of my legacy and where my career starts. Not many people have heard of Ali Adams, but they will hear after I knock Audley Harrison out on April 14.” – Ali Adams.
“I’m gonna send Audley Harrison into retirement.” added Adams.
It will be the first appearance by Harrison, 40, since his defeat to David Haye in November 2010, but he is intending to show he still has a future in boxing and feels he will be too experienced for the Chelsea man.
“I’ve been sitting on the shelf for 15 months, so I’m grateful for this opportunity. said Harrison.
“With my right arm now healed, I’ll have too much for Ali Adams. I intend to show I still have a future in the game.”
