David Price knocks Audley Harrison out in 82 seconds

David Price retained his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles with a devastating 82-second knockout of Audley Harrison.

The 29-year-old, fighting in his hometown of Liverpool, rocked Harrison with a booming right after 60 seconds.

And he finished the fight in style, pinning his opponent to the ropes and raining down punches on the tortured Harrison.

Olympic bronze medallist Price stretched his 100% record to 14 wins.

It was an impressive display by Price, who told BoxNation: "I needed more rounds in order for people to see the best of me. I frighten myself sometimes. I knew somebody would be at the end of a hiding.

"That finish would have knocked out anyone in the world. I soaked the pressure up [of the occasion] and enjoyed it. I dealt with the pressure, no problem.

"I probably sent a bit of message out. I don't think anybody will jump at the chance to fight me because of the power I have.

"We have to remember Audley for what he did at the Olympics [2000 Games gold medallist] - he inspired a few boxers."

On the undercard, John Lewis Dickinson won the vacant British cruiserweight title with a unanimous points decision over Shane McPhilbin.
