Fourteen months after his embarrassing performance in a world heavyweight title fight, British boxer Audley Harrison has lined up a return to the ring. The 40-year-old Harrison, whose last fight was his third-round loss to then-WBA champion David Haye in Manchester in November 2010, is set to face Iraqi-born Ali Adams in Brentwood, England, on April 14. Harrison, the 2000 Olympic heavyweight champion, was ridiculed by the Manchester crowd and British media after throwing only one punch in the Haye fight. He intends to make amends against Adams. Harrison, whose professional record stands at 27-5, says Thursday ''I was never going to retire on that performance ... I intend to show I still have a future in the game.''
