Tommy Langford looking to defeat the experienced Ronny Mittag

Ringnews24.com: You are currently 12-0 – what are your thoughts on how your career is progressing so far?

It is progressing just how I want it really. I just finished my first year with Frank Warren; we’re moving onto intercontinentals now in my second year. That’s going to get me to top 10 in the WBO – providing I get the win. I’m on the right track to be mixing with the best fighters in the division and that’s where I want to be – so I am happy where it’s going.

Exclusive interview with Scott Harrison as he prepares for his return to boxing

Ringnews24.com: Do you feel let down by the Scottish Sheriff Court after they announced you would be extradited to Spain to serve a four-year prison sentence for assault charges dating from May 2007?

There are a lot of ins and outs of the case. I can’t talk too much about the actual case because I have still to go up in front of the High Court – whenever it may be – come my appeal. There are a lot of points of law that the Sheriff should have… the case should have been thrown out. For some reason he never gave an explanation why, so I will be appearing at the High Court this year.

Iceman John Scully chats with Ringnews24

Ringnews24.com: How did you first get into boxing?
 
ICEMAN:  When I was a young kid, from the time I was eight up to about nineteen years old, I used to stay with my father at his apartment on the weekends and he always had a pretty big collection of books and there were three in particular that I used to read through almost every weekend. They were the autobiographies of Willie Pep, Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali. He also had a copy of the 1952 Ring Record Book and I would read through the records of all the fighters to see who they fought and how they did. To this very day I still remember special parts of each of those books that I refer to frequently when talking boxing here in 2014.
