In 1997, Audley became the British superheavyweight champion and retained the title in 1998. He then went on to win gold at the 1998 Commonwealth Games.
At the Sydney Olympics in 2000 Audley doubled his gold winnings as an amateur when he defeated Mukhtarkhan Dildabekov and became the first British boxer to win Olympic gold in the superheavyweight division.
After his Olympic gold medal win Audley was awarded an MBE in 2001 Queen’s New Year’s Honours list for his services to sport.
The British professional boxer, who fought in the heavy weight division, turned professional in 2001 after signing a £1million contract with BBC Sport for his first 10 professional fights.
In May 2001, he began his professional career with a first round victory, closely followed by several other convincing wins.
6ft 6 inch Audley continued his winning streak when he made his US debut in 2003. This led to him permanently relocating to the USA where he was unbeaten in 11 fights; eight of which were knockout victories.
In December 2005, Audley returned to the UK to face fellow Briton Danny Williams for the Commonwealth title; he stepped in after Williams’ opponent pulled out five weeks before the fight, and lost on a split decision in the match.
