http://www.scotsman.com/sport/boxin...ast-track-chance-for-scott-harrison-1-2430463Former WBO featherweight champion Scott Harrison has been given the chance to fast-track his career back on to the global stage.
The 34-year-old Scot has been offered a fight against former British and European lightweight champion John Murray on the undercard of WBO title holder Ricky Burns' defence against Kevin Mitchell at Glasgow's SECC on Saturday 22 September.
A bout against Murray would serve as an eliminator for the WBO belt and provide Harrison with the chance to become the first Scot to become a three-times world champion.
Harrison - who was last in action at the end of June with a fourth-round stoppage of Hungarian opponent Gyorgy Mizsei at the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow - has also been offered the opportunity to box Greenock's John Simpson in an eliminator for the British super-feathwerweight crown.
