Scott Harrison Given Three Year Deal By Alex Morrison

By Phil D. Jay

Former world featherweight champion Scott Harrison has linked up with renowned Scottish promoter Alex Morrison following the break-up of his relationship with Frank Maloney.

The 34 year-old, who was supposed to make his eagerly-awaited comeback on Saturday night following a seven-year absence, was arrested by police for a series of alleged drunken incidents and immediately dropped by Maloney.

The Glasgow fighter is now hopeful that the British Board of Boxing Control give him a reprieve from sanctions after the arrest and allow him to concentrate of climbing through the ropes and fulfilling his dream of becoming world champion once again.

Morrison, who had no qualms in stepping in to offer Harrison a three-year deal, is hoping to have the one-time WBO belt holder back in the ring as early as May at a show in his native Scotland.

"I have signed a management contract with Scott and I plan to bring him back on a show in Glasgow in around five weeks' time,” Morrison told The Scottish Sun.

"I met Scott and his father and trainer, Peter on Friday and we agreed a three-year deal. The rest is up to him. But I don't regard this as a gamble. Scott is the one who is gambling with his career and I have nothing to lose.

"He admits he was drunk, but that's hardly a crime, and his lawyer has assured him that the fiscal has no plans to proceed with any charges.

“I am exploring the possibility of bring Scott back at the Kelvin Hall. Scott deserves another chance," added Morrison.
