The tension builds ahead of the all-British world title fight
On Saturday the time will come for all the trash talking to stop and for the real war to begin.
David Haye will defend his WBA world heavyweight title against Audley Harrison in a grudge match that has been dubbed the ‘Best of Enemies’.
The two London fighters used to be friends but a falling out between the pair has led to a bitter feud and both will have the chance to put the other firmly in their place when the first bell goes at the MEN Arena in Manchester.
The odds are stacked against Olympic gold medal winner Harrison – nicknamed ‘Fraudley’ by his detractors – but he does possess undeniable power which could be a factor against Haye’s questionable chin.
The ‘Hayemaker’ is no stranger to hitting the canvas but he has displayed the heart to pick himself up and knock out his opponent on more than one occasion.
The fight is the most eagerly awaited heavyweight clash on these shores since the turn of the millenium yet amazingly tickets are still available to see the contest in person.
