Audley Harrison decides not to retire after all.

Just 20 days after announcing his retirement, Harrison has revealed on his Twitter he is close to confirming a comeback fight.

"A force" as he’s affectionately known is looking likely to step back into the ring and capture the vacant British heavyweight title.

The two-time prize fighter and former Olympic champion has been knocked out in three of his last seven professional fights.

His last fight in April - a disappointing defeat to Deontray Wilder - triggered his retirement that was officially announced only 20 days ago.

But last night, Harrison confirmed in a Q&A on social networking site Twitter he would definitely be coming back, and that a comeback was close with the “deal almost done”.

The Heavyweight title seems the most viable option for a comeback with a fight with rival Michael Sprott on the cards.

The two have fought twice before most recently in 2010 in a close encounter that Harrison only just managed to come through, and in 2007 Sprott managed a third round stoppage over the former Olympian.

With Harrison claiming the deal is close, the fight - whoever it's against - is sure to be announced soon.
