Daws in revenge mission on Morrison

Lenny Daws believes he will become a two time British Light Welterweight Champion on Friday night when he meets old foe Barry Morrison for the vacant title. Motherwell man Morrison ended Daws first reign as a Lonsdale belt holder when he beat him on a split decision in 2007 but the Morden man is confident of getting revenge at London’s York Hall on Friday. “I always wanted a rematch with Morrison and now I’ve got the opportunity,” said Daws. “I thought I nicked it by a couple of rounds last time but I can set the record straight now. Last time I started too slowly and I know I can’t afford to make the same mistake this time, I need to get to work from early on and leave no doubts in the judge’s minds.” Daws is unbeaten in six since his defeat to Morrison and last time out he captured the English Light Welterweight title with a points win over Peter McDonagh however he has always had one eye on a rematch with Morrison. “It’s been 2 and a half years since I lost my belt and it’s been a difficult time. When you lose that belt it’s like losing a part of you so it’s great that I’ve a chance to get it back now. I always wanted the rematch with Morrison and to have the Lonsdale belt on the line is a real bonus. “I know him inside out obviously from our first fight and from watching him over the years. I know his strengths and weaknesses, he’s going to be very strong and it’s a huge opportunity for both of us but I know what I need to do to win so it’s up to me to put that game plan in to action.
