Price won an Olympic bronze medal in Beijing in 2008, while Harrison took gold in Sydney 12 years ago. Audley said the fight could be the best British fight ever seen.
Price has won all 13 of his fights since turning professional in January 2009.
He won the English heavyweight title by beating John McDermott in 73 seconds in Liverpool in January.
The 29-year-old then became British and Commonwealth champion with a victory over Sam Sexton in May.
Harrison, 40, won super-heavyweight Olympic gold in Sydney with victory over Kazakhstan’s Mukhtarkhan Dildabekov.
He was unbeaten in his first 19 fights when he turned professional soon afterwards, but has endured several damaging defeats over the last seven years.
He suffered his first major setback when he was beaten by Danny Williams in a 2005 Commonwealth title bout.
A European title defeat by Michael Sprott two years later was followed by a loss on points to Belfast taxi driver Martin Rogan in 2008.
Harrison’s last major fight, for the WBA world heavyweight title in November 2010, led to him being heavily criticised after being stopped in the third round by David Haye.
He made his comeback in May with victory over Ali Adams at the Brentwood Centre in Essex.
Price is favourite on home turf but don’t rule out the former Olympic gold medalist!
