Adams vows to ‘destroy’ Harrison

Ali Adams has vowed to end Audley Harrison’s boxing career when the pair meet in April.

Their encounter will be much-maligned former Olympic champion Harrison’s first fight since he was beaten by David Haye in a one-sided world title clash in 2010.

The Wembley heavyweight, 40, says he is determined to atone for that performance and put himself in the frame for another title shot.

But the Iraq-born Adams, who lives in Chelsea, says he will knock Harrison out.

He told West London Sport: “I hit hard – and when I hit Audley he’s going to the floor.

“Audley is a joke and I’m going to end his career. I’m going to destroy him. There’s no way the fight will go the distance.

“I’d rather die than lose to Harrison and let people down. Is he ready to face someone like me? I don’t think he can handle it.”

Adams, nicknamed ‘The Tiger’, has lived in west London since he was 16 and was introduced to boxing by his father, who passed away last year.

Winning the 14 April showdown with Harrison in Brentwood would put the 30-year-old in line for a British title challenge and he is keen to make the most of his chance.

“It’s my time – a big opportunity for me and I’m going to take it,” he declared.

“I’m going to do it for my dad and show people what Ali Adams is capable of.”
