Ghana’s Tackie Annan has been called as Scott Harrison’s opponent for the former world champion’s ring return December.
They’ll fight over 10 rounds to the vacant Professional Boxing Council’s international lightweight title.
It’ll be the 41-year-old Scot battle in five years following a spell in prison.
Promoter Lee McAllister stated:”it is a huge chance to be given a title shot at the first fight back”
Annan has nine within the distance a list of 10 wins, and six defeats, in most of which he was stopped.
After serving three decades of a four-year sentence for attack in 24, the two-time WBO featherweight champion, harrison, was released.
However, McAllister rates the”super-fit” Scot’s chances at Glasgow Club Bellahouston from an opponent who has not fought since knocking out compatriot Kuma Doe past November.
“Although Scott is currently 41, he’s still got bundles left in the tank and will surprise a lot of people,” he said. “I think, if Scott gets a few fights in rapid at the beginning of next year, he will catapult himself up the ratings and put himself in a position to box for world titles “
Annan fought in Aberdeen a year ago for the title, knocking out the Nathan Beattie at the second round of Scotland.
The Ghanaian had failed to make the championship weight at the weigh-in and the name therefore remained vacant.
The Professional Boxing Council premiered by businessman Russell Jaques this past year.
