British heavyweight Audley Harrison wants to land himself a domestic showdown with either Tyson Fury or David Price later this year.

Harrison, who has not fought since losing to David Haye in November 2010, will make his return against Ali Adams in Essex on May 26.

Adams' professional record is hardly jaw-dropping (13-3-1), and a victory is unlikely to give Harrison a springboard back into the big time - however, he is keen to face either Price, who meets Sam Sexton for the vacant British title on Saturday, or former British champion Fury.

"I know it's dangerous to look past an opponent, especially when they're hungry and motivated like Ali Adams, but let's be honest, I'm in a different league," Harrison said.

"Taking charge of my training camp again allowed me to reignite the passion, hunger and desire needed to succeed - and I'm back to loving my boxing.

"After I give Ali Adams a lesson in the sweet science, I'm looking for a challenge with one of the upcoming heavyweights. I'm throwing my name into the hat with David Price, Tyson Fury, Johnathon Banks or Seth Mitchell."
