Scott Gammer rejects Audley Harrison

Press Release: Scott Gammer is the British heavyweght champion but compared to ex-Olympic champion Audley Harrison, he is unknown internationally. But Gammer's promoter/manager Paul Boyce has rejected the overtures of Harrison's new promoter Sports Network for a fight at London's Wembley Stadium in February.  "There been a lot of talk about Scott possibly fighting Audley Harrison," said Boyce. "But it's probably not going to happen. We've offered the fight to Audley twice in the past and he turned us down both times. Now, he's got nothing to offer us back.  "The offer we were given recently to fight Audley called for the bout to take place in London but Scott is the champion and we think that when the fight takes place it should take place in Wales. Why should Scott have the disadvantages if he's the champion? We're trying to put together a three fight package; a voluntary defense on February 16, face Danny Williams [Editor: Williams just lost to Harrison], Scott's mandatory and who we still have a contract to fight, at the end of March or beginning of April and then fight Audley if he's still interested, but in Wales." While Harrison's winning performance against Williams two weeks ago converted many to the "A-Force" bandwagon, Boyce isn't one of them. "Audley was blowing by the third round and I didn't think that he looked any better than he has in his other fights," he said. "Danny took that fight on about 10 days notice and he wasn't fit; he didn't do anything in the fight. I think Danny knew he was in it only for the money."
