KELTY boxer Craig Morgan is ready to make it four-in-a-row when he steps into the ring in Glasgow on Friday evening.

The 19-year-old, who turned professional last year, is preparing to take on Nicaraguan fighter Jose Aguilar and defend his 100 per cent winning record in the professional ranks at the Emirates Arena.

He will be on the undercard of a packed show, hosted by MTK Global, which will also see Iain Butcher challenge Scott Allan for the Celtic bantamweight title, and Kieran Smith attempt to defend his WBC International Silver super-welterweight belt against Adam Harper.

Morgan, who is being backed in his bid for glory by Kelty Hearts and village salon Guilty Hairdressing, is set to be cheered on by an army of fans on the night as he looks to send Aguilar to the canvas.

Having won on his debut at Paisley's Lagoon Centre in October, victories over Sergio Gonzalez – also from Nicaragua – and Welshman Robbie Forster, both in Glasgow, has put featherweight Morgan in confident mood.

Speaking to Times Sport last month, he said: "It's a big step from fighting in front of 1,500 in Paisley, nd 4-500 at the Radisson Blu (Hotel, against Gonzalez) to 5-6,000 at the Emirates. There's not many who get an opportunity with MTK at the age of 19, so I have to prove it's where I belong and take it.

"The show will be a good learning curve.

"For my last fight, I only had a week's notice.

"I had two weeks off after my second fight but then my coach said there was a fight 4-5 days before Christmas, and that I could take it and get another win, or leave it. I thought I could do four rounds and, although it wasn't an amazing performance, it was a win at the end of the day.

"I feel that, every single day, there are improvements. I'm stronger, fitter and sparring with better boys, and my weight is almost there.

"It's a nervous excitement at the moment."

Morgan's scheduled 34-year-old opponent has had three bouts so far this year, recording two losses on points, and a draw with David White Junior in Cardiff.

As well as five draws, Aguilar's record reads 16 wins – six by KO – and 56 losses, 12 of which were by KO.

Other boxers set to feature on the show's undercard include former Commonwealth Games boxers Lewis Benson and Reece McFadden, and ex-Commonwealth super middleweight champion David Brophy.
