Audley Harrison has waited 11 years for his chance to turn the tables on Julius Francis. Francis ended Harrison's unbeaten streak as an amateur when
the pair met 11 years ago. At Friday's weigh-in, Harrison scaled 17st 7.25lbs, a quarter of a pound more than in his last fight, while Francis weighed
in at a stocky 18st 4lbs. Audley Harrison claimed his 16th straight victory since turning professional with a comprehensive points victory over Julius
Francis. The WBF heavyweight champion, who won the belt by beating Holland's Richel Hersisia in March, struggled to overcome a stubborn opponent. A
late knockdown by Harrison in the 12th nearly ended the fight but Francis had enough to get up off the canvas.
