Just shy of 3 weeks ago, professional journey man, Audley Harrison announced his retirement after suffering an embarrassing defeat of being ko'ed in a mere 70 seconds to Deontay Wilder. Many accepted Harrison's retirement announcement joyfully... however hold that joy and pass the pepto bismol, because it looks like Harrison once again will be back in the boxing ring. (And in trying to be lighthearted about the situation, perhaps we can blame, err, I mean thank Lennox Lewis and David Haye for this delightful news).

On Audley Harrison's website, the former Olympian stated: 'When I made the tough decision to walk away from boxing, I knew it was not going to be easy. As the days passed, I knew I would not be able to live with the decision. I wrestled with it for a few weeks, and spoke to everyone from the Boxing Board, to Lennox Lewis, David Haye, my dad, wife and many others…ultimately seeing my son born (on Thursday) crystallized my decision. ‘There is no way I am going to tell my son, "I gave up because I didn’t want to climb the mountain again, I didn’t want to dust myself off again", when I’m now in the best shape of my career, doing things I haven’t done for years, and back in love with the sport…how can I retire, when I know I have another shot in me? ‘If I don’t get up and try again, everything I’ve stood for would mean nothing. Setbacks pave the way for comebacks, etc, etc, I believe it, so I have to live it, and go again."

So there you have it folks, like it or not, Harrison is back. Lucky for all of us, this time he is in the best shape of his life!
