Ali Adams’ trainer Don Charles believes his fighter’s aggressive style will be too much for Audley Harrison when the pair clash on Saturday night.The bout will be Harrison’s first since the former Olympic champion was brushed aside by David Haye in a one-sided world title contest in November 2010.Harrison, from Harlesden, has been much criticised during his professional career, with many believing he lacks the stomach for a battle.And Charles says Adams, who was born in Iraq and lives in Chelsea, will exploit Harrison’s apparent reluctance to trade punches.“We’re going to fight him – he doesn’t like to fight. I don’t believe Audley likes to engage in a fight,” Charles told West London Sport.“He’s very technical – hence why he won the Olympic gold medal and we respect him for that – but watching Audley fight sometimes is like watching paint dry.“It’s like playing football and waiting for the opposition to concede a penalty for you to score. He doesn’t like to score in open play – and we’re going to score in open play, that’s the strategy.“Audley waits for the opportunity to let his left hand go. We’re not going to give him that opportunity.”Some of Adams’ past performances suggest he has little chance of delivering on his pledge to beat Harrison, who insists his dismal showing against Haye was the result of a pectoral injury.But Charles, also the trainer of world title challenger Dereck Chisora, is convinced Adams is a much improved fighter.He said: “When I started to train Ali he had no defence whatsoever. The main thing I’ve done is give him a defence and from that he’s gained confidence.“I know Audley’s strengths. I also know his weaknesses. If I didn’t think Ali would win this fight I would have said ‘Forget it, don’t make the match’.“We’ve done our homework and I believe my boy is going to be victorious.”See also: Adams says he sees fear in HarrisonFollow West London Sport on Twitter Find us on Facebook

Celtic’s Kieran Tierney insists he is in no hurry to leave the club and reaffirmed his commitment to the club after missing out on a move to the Premier League this summer.The defender was a subject of interest from Everton and a host of other clubs but none of the clubs were willing to accept Celtic’s £25million valuation of the player.He admitted he has no regrets over missing out on a life-changing £70,000 a week salary at Goodison and said: “I know, and my family know, that since day one we have been committed to Celtic.” According to Daily Mail.“That’s 100 per cent. In football, you never what might happen next but I have never been anything else than focused at Celtic. It’s always been Celtic for me.”“I’ll never be in a hurry to leave this club. No matter what the situation is. But I can’t predict what will happen in the future.”“There was obviously a lot of talk at the start of the transfer window during pre-season, more than before, but for me it’s just about switching off and focusing on Celtic.”Arsenal suffer huge blow as Lacazette is ruled out until October Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Arsenal announced that striker Alexandre Lacazette has suffered an ankle injury and will be sidelined until October.“When I got away from training, I would focus on day-to-day life and try not to think about anything else and get distracted.”Admitting he came under pressure from Celtic fans who were worried he would leave for huge money, Tierney said: “I wasn’t on Twitter for a couple of days. I was getting a bit of abuse but that happens.”“I’m still here, playing for this great club, giving everything every day at training.”“At the start of pre-season, people were coming up and asking me what was going to happen. It has died down.”‘I’ll tell them the truth. I’m 100-per-cent committed to Celtic. That’s how it stands.’ Tierney earned a hefty pay rise when he put pen to paper on a new six-year Celtic contract last season.”
