HARRISON YIELDS WBF TITLE

Former Olympic super heavyweight champion Audley Harrison has decided to vacate the lightly regarded World Boxing Federation title before it is taken from him.

The WBF had threatened to strip the 33-year-old fighter of the title he won in March 2004. He has been criticized for fighting journeyman opponents and doesn't have a high enough ranking to challenge for the more respected WBC, WBA and IBF titles.
