HACKNEY trainer Brian Lawrence has added another fighter to his burgeoning stable.
Lawrence, who has steered Ian Napa to the British bantamweight title and three successful defences that have brought the Clapton man a Lonsdale Belt and trained Anthony Small to the Southern Area light-middleweight crown, in his first fight under Lawrence, has added Irish heavyweight Scott Belshaw to his camp.
Belfast heavy Belshaw has started working under Lawrence's tutelage on the advice of promoter Frank Maloney.
The promoter says: "We chose Brian to guide Scott because he's a good teacher and has lots of patience with his boxers. That will be good for Scott and good for us, as building Scott's career is a long term project.''
Maloney has lined up the Belfast man for a first fight under Lawrence's guidance on his bill at the Goresbrook Leisure Centre, Dagenham, later this month.
For Belshaw it's a re-match against Frenchman Daniel Peret, who took the Belfast boxer's unbeaten record in July last year.

It's the only blot on the six foot seven inch Irishman's pro record. He has stopped his other seven opponents since turning pro.
Promoter Maloney has also signed up another recent Brian Lawrence recruit to his stable.
Ben Murphy, who has recently joined the Lawrence camp, travels four times a week from his home in Brighton to be trained by Lawrence at gyms in Clapton or Shoreditch. Murphy recently scored a good win over Gary Buckland in Portsmouth and Maloney was so impressed, he has signed the boxer.
