With a match against WBA World-Title holder David Haye looming on the horizon, professional pugilist Audley Harrison is getting ready to step into an entirely different sort of ring.
Thanks to a sponsorship deal with Full Tilt Poker, the 38 year-old from Great Britain will face his coming challenge under the banner of one of the biggest names in the gaming industry. A frequent player in his spare hours, Harrison has already banked nearly $100,000 in poker earnings since being introduced to the game.
A veteran of 31 fights (of which he’s won 27), Harrison got into poker during his time living in Las Vegas. Since then, he’s taken the time to learn the game with some of the toughest trainers in the business. His efforts have paid off, resulting in a pair of WSOP cashes, a third place berth at the Venetian Deep Stack and a runner-up finish in the Bellagio Cup.
“I have had some great results already in the game… and I have been looking at joining the right team for a while now,” says Harrison. “We have found the perfect partner in Full Tilt Poker and I look forward to representing them both in the ring and on the tables. Next time I’m in action on the felt, I plan to have the WBA Heavyweight Championship belt round my waist.”
The contender’s chance will come soon enough. His fight with Haye is scheduled to take place on November 13 at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England. When the bell eventually rings, Harrison will be confident that Full Tilt will be in his corner. Likewise, the fighter will represent the poker giant in all of his live tournament dealings in the near future.
