SCOTT HARRISON wants Ricky Burns – and he wants him in December.
The former WBO featherweight boxing champion, along with manager Alex Morrison, is charting a three-fight course back to world title glory.
WBO lightweight champion Burns is the man Harrison believes is his final destination.
Both fighters are managed by Morrison and co-promoted by Big Alex and Frank Warren. It is a fight that would not be hard to make.
First, Hagi must roll back the years at the Kelvin Hall and re-launch himself with a comprehensive victory over French Algerian Brahim Bariz.
But Harrison is adamant he has Burns in his sights. He said: "The target is to be world champion by December. Given the opportunity I will take it either at lightweight or super-featherweight. I am 100 per cent confident I could do 130lbs for super-featherweight if required, so I have the option.
"Ricky Burns could be the route at lightweight but so could super-featherweight. If I get the opportunity to fight Ricky, I will definitely take it."
Harrison has no doubt that, if he got it on with Burns, it would be the biggest fight in a Scottish ring since tartan fight legends Jim Watt and Ken Buchanan met over 15 torrid rounds at the St Andrew's Sporting Club in 1973.
