Former two-time world featherweight titlist Scott Harrison
continued his comeback with a six rounds points win over Joe Elfidh
in Glasgow on Saturday night.
The 35-year-old is attempting to rebuild his career after
spending almost seven years away following battles with alcoholism
as well as a stint behind bars.
He impressed in his first outing in June and looked like to
making a statement once again in the opening round when a solid
left hook to the head dropped Elfidh to the seat of his trunks.
However, Elfidh, who took the bout on less than 24 hours notice,
managed to haul himself back up and made a good account of himself
in the following five rounds.
Harrison was forced to press forwards from round three onwards
as Elfidh moved onto the back foot and attempted to land single
The Scottish veteran targeted the body well throughout, but
never looked like putting another a dent in Elfidh and even had to
soak up a few solid left hands.
Referee Richie Davies scored it 60-53, which was maybe a little
wider than it should have been.
It has been suggested that Harrison will soon be in the world
title mix, but on this evidence it seems like he needs a few more
warm up fights yet.
