Audley Harrison says he will carry on boxing despite his 82-second defeat by David Price this month.

Harrison, who won Olympic gold in Sydney in 2000, failed in his attempt to win the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles.

Despite admitting he considered retiring, he said on Twitter:external-link "It's official...I've decided to carry on.

"One more shot at glory. It could be over; next fight will tell me. See you in a ring real soon."

Harrison's first-round knockout by Price was the sixth defeat of his professional career, leaving him with a record which reads 28 wins in 34 fights, including 21 knockouts.

His previous defeat was against David Haye in November 2010 in a WBA heavyweight title fight.
