SCOTT HARRISON'S second comeback fight could be against Greenock's John Simpson.
Harrison made a triumphant return – after six and a half years out – with a fourth-round stoppage of Hungarian Gyorgy Mizsei.
On the same bill, Simpson destroyed Paul Appleby in six rounds to claim the Celtic super-featherweight title to post his credentials as a major player at 130lbs.
Harrison is set for a slot on the undercard of the Ricky Burns-Kevin Mitchell WBO lightweight title fight at the SECC on September 22, and has admitted he could easily make super-featherweight, despite making his comeback at lightweight.
Now city promoter Alex Morrison says the two could easily get it on in what could be one of the most brutal encounters ever seen in a Scottish ring.
Big Alex said: "I think a fight between Harrison and Simpson would be the type of throwback fight any Scottish boxing fan would love to see.
"Simpson would fight anyone and not be prepared to take a step back in the process, and that is the mirror image of what Harrison is all about.
"Scott did the lightweight limit of 135 pounds so well that he was actually two or three pounds under a couple of days before the weigh-in, so making 130lbs is not going to be a problem for him. We need Scott's next fight to provide a real test for him if he is, potentially, to go in with the winner of Mitchell versus Burns.
"If he met Simpson, he would get all the trouble he could handle and, to be honest, it would be hard to call a winner there."
Should the duo get it on, Simpson would provide the ultimate test of Harrison's ability to turn the clock back.
Harrison says he would have no problem dropping down to super-featherweight if it means a quicker route to a world title fight.
He said: "I am back in boxing to become world champion for a third time. I was three pounds under the week before my weigh-in for Mizsei, so dropping down to 130lbs is not a problem. The bottom line is that if there is a world title fight for me at super-feather I will take it.
"On September 22, I am looking for a real test and I will fight whoever Alex Morrison puts in front of me."
