Audley Harrison is believed to be closing in on a fight with unbeaten American Deontay Wilder.

Harrison's career is back on an upward slope following his victory in Prizefighter last month, after which he claimed he was targeting a world-title shot.

The veteran has a long way to go to get back in the title mix, but it seems the 41-year-old is making a push by agreeing to a fight with Wilder.

Harrison tweeted the following on Monday afternoon:

Harrison did not confirm the name of his opponent and said details are still to be finalised, but the tweet is believed to be in reference to reports of a fight with Wilder - who is unbeaten in 27 outings.

Reports suggest the fight will be added to the Amir Khan-Julio Diaz card in Sheffield on April 27.
