After 7 Years, Scott Harrison Made His Ring Return This Past Weekend


Former WBO featherweight champion Scott Harrison made his long-awaited ring return on Friday night after nearly seven years out of action.

Harrison, 34, marked his comeback at lightweight with a four round demolition of previously undefeated Gyorgy Mizsei Jr.

Despite his well publicised problems with alcohol and the law during his layoff, Harrison looked sharp as he dropped his 18-year-old opponent three times during a one-sided second round.

An appreciative Kelvin Hall crowd in Glasgow saluted the returning Harrison (26-2) who in kind paid tribute to his affectionate fanbase:

“It was a privilege to be out there in front of the fans.

“I want to thank them for coming out to support me.”

Despite the extensive nature of his time away from the ring and his two year jail term in a Spanish prison, Harrison’s name is likely to be linked to fellow Scotsman and current lightweight world champion Ricky Burns who fights Kevin Mitchell in September.
