Audley Harrison Wants To Fight The Klitschko Brothers
Audley Harrison has landed a shot at the European Heavyweight Title, and if he comes through that fight victorious, he say's he wants to fight one, or both of the Klitschko brothers. He said he doesn't want to fight David Haye because Haye isn't all that well known in the USA yet, but the Klitschko's are the guys on everyone's lips, so he want's to fight them.
Has he earnt a shot a the Klitschko's?
No, I don't think he has to be honest, Audley has lost to almost every decent fighter he has ever faced. He doesn't hold any belts at heavyweight, and even if he wins the European heavyweight title, that doesn't mean much. The European heavyweight title is not held in high regard, and is nowhere near the acheivement level or status of all the other major heavyweight belts, including the WBA heavyweight title that David Haye now holds.
Good Publicity for Audley?
I think that's all this is. Audley has seen what David Haye has done in terms of calling out the Klitschko's, getting in the public eye, on the news, youtube etc etc. And he has thought to himself - Why not do that, why do i have to lose. He knows that if that method succeeds, he will land a big money fight, and a big time title if he was to pull off an upset (Not much chance of that). There is also no shame if he loses to the Klitschko's, so it's a win win situation for Audley. Audley is close to 40 years old too, so it's a last chance saloon for him to land a big fight before he retires.
In my opinion, Audley does not deserve a shot at any of the top heavyweight belts, even if he wins the European heavyweight title in style. Until he fights and defeats some of the good heavyweight boxers, he should not get a shot. He simply doesn't deserve it until he takes on better opposition.
