Liverpool’s Jake Harrison defends his BBBoC Central Area Bantamweight title against Logan Richardson this Saturday at Grand Central Hall, Liverpool.

Harrison won the title last year with a stunning stoppage victory over Jack Dwyer in the same venue.

The scouser told MerseySportLive that he is looking forward to boxing in front of his faithful fans once more:

“It’s what you put all the work in training camp for” Harrison said.

“To win it in front of a home crowd and to then defend it in front of a home crowd would be just as nice.”

The champion may be relishing the chance of defending in his home city but insists he has not changed his challenger mentality:

“Nothing’s changed really, I’m still going into the fight with the same mentality.

“The only difference is someone’s coming to take something that I’ve got – and I can’t let them.”

Harrison seemed fully focused on Saturday’s defence but admitted another standout performance could put him in line for bigger honours:

“We just take it one fight at a time, I’m obviously confident in what I can do.

“If I come through the fight Saturday as easily as I have in previous fights then we will look forward to bigger and better fights… maybe the English title.”

This Friday also features more Bantamweight boxing action with Chris Bourke and Ashley Lane battling it out for the British title in London.

The scouser admitted that he would be watching closely with a hope of one day fighting for the famous Lonsdale belt.

“I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on that, whether I fight them sooner or later, it will probably happen at some point,

“So, it’s not bad to do a bit of homework on them.”
