David Price smashed Audley Harrison on Saturday at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, in a fight which was available to fans in the United States on WealthTV. Price got Harrison hurt in the 1st round with a chopping right hand, and then pinned Harrison on the ropes, opening up his full arsenal and leaving him crumbling to the canvas in an u unconscious heap as the referee rushed in to call off the action.
While some folks had optimism for Price vs. Harrison to be a meaningful fight, and a legitimate test for the undefeated British hope of the heavyweight division, it's hard to fathom that anybody bought into the hype surrounding the match. Price vs. Harrison was always a mismatch, and while predicting a 1st round knockout is hard, this fight seemed like the whitewash it was when it was put together.
Now, don't get me wrong... it's not as bad as the fradulent Alexander Povetkin "title" defense against Hasim Rahman. That was complete garbage.
