Scott Harrison splits from manager Alex Morrison

Ex-champ Scott Harrison is set to attempt to salvage what is left of his career on his own after parting company with manager Alex Morrison just days after losing an appeal against a four-year Spanish prison sentence, according to The Daily Record.

‘The Real McCoy’ is facing an uphill struggle to continue his charge towards one last world title attempt and has now seen any chances of a an all-Scottish fight with WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns fall apart.

Harrison, 35, under European law, could conceivably be forced to travel to Spain to face the sentence handed down by a Malaga judge last year and faces an uncertain future after initially making a successful comeback.

The former two-time WBO featherweight champion now seems to have burned his bridges on more than one front and may have fought his last fight – with several misdemeanours hanging over him since his release from a first prison stint in 2011.
