CRAIG MORGAN says he's ready to step up to six-round bouts as he gets set to return to the ring this month.

The Kelty boxer, who boasts a 100 per cent winning record since turning professional last year, is set to feature on the undercard of Kash Farooq's third defence of his British Bantamweight title against Duane Winters on August 17.

Hosted by St Andrew's Sporting Club, at Glasgow's Radisson Blu, it will be the talented 19-year-old's sixth pro fight and he is adamant that it will be his last over four rounds.

In June, Morgan made it five wins from five on an emotional night at the Emirates Arena where, after having lost fellow Kelty boxer Connor Law, and another close friend, Robbie McArthur, leading up to the fight, he dominated Nicaraguan Elvis Guillen to win 40-34 on points.

He had dropped his 35-year-old opponent to the canvas twice for good measure and Morgan, who was named Sporting Champion of the Year at this year's Times Community Champion Awards, is preparing to step up again.

"I would fight tomorrow if I was not away (on holiday)," he said.

"This is 100 per cent my last four-round. All of my opponents have been like sledgehammers, and have had upwards of 50-60 fights, but I've put them down 3-4 times. To do that at 19 years old must mean I'm doing something right.

"Even in my first fight, I thought that if I had six rounds, I would've got him (Adam Hutchinson, by technical knockout)."

Morgan has received a boost ahead of the show, which will be screened live on BBC Scotland, in the shape of further sponsorship backing from Keith Brown, of K.B. Welding, and Daniel Hall, of D.H. Renewables Ltd.

He and some of his sponsors recently met-up at Kelty Hearts, who have also given support to Morgan, and he added: "Just after Connor passed away, a few friends wanted to help and I'm really grateful to them.

"You don't get a lot of people doing that; they're really kind-hearted folk. Just hearing them say that meant the world to me.

"Even when people come to my fights, the more tickets I sell, the bigger shows I get put on that furthers my career.

"I can't express how much it helps and how grateful I am."
