Audley Harrison's sights back on world title shot after cruising to Prizefighter success

Prizefighter winner Audley Harrison is convinced he can complete his "journey" and become a world champion this year.
The 41-year-old heavyweight destroyed the opposition at York Hall on Saturday to pocket £36,000 and resurrect a career which has appeared dead many times over since he turned professional in 2001.
Harrison has talked himself into a world title shot in the past - one that ended in humiliating defeat to former sparring partner David Haye in late 2010 - but the Londoner told Sky Sports there is more than just bluster to his latest ambition.
He said: "It's been nine years in the wilderness trying to get back my mojo, and as you can see my mojo's back.
"I've let go of my demons and taken responsibility for my life. I'm 41 years of age, in the best shape of my life and I'm ready to finish my journey finally.
"This is my journey this year. Forget David Haye, forget David Price (who knocked out Harrison inside a round in October) - I want the chance the prove now I've got it all together that I'm good enough to be a world champion.
"I'd like that opportunity, and I think with (Prizefighter promoter) Eddie Hearn and hopefully with what I've done here I'm going to get that opportunity."
