Audley Harrison continues the fight for Stonebridge Adventure Playground despite losing to Haye
Sportsman wore T-shirt promoting the playground’s plight on Saturday night
BOXING flop Audley Harrison donned a Keep Stonebridge Adventure Playground Open t-shirt minutes before his World heavyweight fight with David Haye that saw him knocked-out inside three rounds on Saturday night.
The sportsman from Kingsbury, had dropped in at the playground a week earlier for a photo-shoot in a bid to raise its profile as it fights for survival.
Colin Hunter, an old friend of Audley and a play-worker at SAP, rallied behind the star despite his less than impressive display, saying that he believed Audleye still had a future.
Mr Hunter said: “I’m upset but I’d like to see him fight again; one of the Klitschko brothers. I think he would hurt whoever he fights next time.”

But he distanced himself from quotes attributed to him in national newspapers in which they claim he said Audley wasn’t welcome back in Stonebridge
He said: “They haven’t put all what I said in; boxing pundits aren’t going to be happy but it didn’t work out for Audley but that’s boxing.”

Mr Hunter said he wouldn’t be bothering Audley for a while but thanked him for his work for kids in Stonebridge where Big Lottery funds will dry-up in February.
But Brent Play Association, who run the playground hope to raise enough money to keep the play-park open next year through donations and fundraising.
