Scott Harrison yesterday vowed to make no more "slip-ups" as he sets out to regain the World Boxing Organisation featherweight crown from Manuel Medina, the five-time world champion who beat him on points in July.

Harrison was suffering the effects of a virus at the time and was violently sick shortly before the fight. This time his trainer, his father Peter, have a doctor in the team to give the fighter regular checks and dietary advice as he prepares for the re-match in Glasgow this month.

The 26-year-old said: "I am ready for the fight. I have done nine-and-a-half weeks and there will be no slip-ups this time. I am 100 per cent fit and physically right and ready. This is going to be a fast fight, and I'm ready to throw many punches. I am looking forward to bringing the title back to Scotland."
