INJURY couldn't stop Craig Morgan from the joy of six as he continued his fine winning record in the boxing ring on Saturday.

And, although the 19-year-old reckons that his performance against Rafael Castillo could have been more clinical, he was pleased to come through with a sixth professional victory despite picking up an elbow knock leading up to the live TV bout.

'Iceman' Morgan, from Kelty, returned to action at Glasgow's Radisson Blu on the undercard of Kash Farooq's third defence of his British Bantamweight title against Duane Winters, in which the former claimed victory inside the first round.

Although his clash with Castillo was not quite as dramatic, the teenager controlled proceedings against the 27-year-old Nicaraguan, who had competed in 73 bouts previously.

However, despite his greater experience as a professional, Castillo couldn't stop Morgan from maintaining his 100 per cent winning record on points, who told Times Sport: "To be honest with you, I didn't win the way that I thought I would.

"I thought that I would be more clinical, and that it would be better on my behalf, but I only had five days for training. I would normally train for 6-7 weeks before the fight, and then in the week before, I wouldn't train as hard in case I catch an injury time.

"I was playing against time and, unfortunately, I caught an injury on my elbow. Adrenaline got me through.

"I thought I could have boxed better, but I did ok. The boy I was fighting is team-mates with my past two opponents (fellow Nicaraguans Jose Aguilar and Elvis Guillen), and I've beat the lot, so I can't complain."

On his injury, Morgan continued: "I think it's a nerve or a tendon. I had seen the physios, which helped, but straight after fight night, it started to become sore again.

"I was meant to fight in September but that's been put back until November so I can sort my elbow out.

"But I can't not be pleased; I'm still happy and I'll start training for the next one."

The fight, which was hosted by St Andrew's Sporting Club, was broadcast live on BBC Scotland but that didn't stop another huge turnout from Kelty travelling to Glasgow to back their man, who revelled showcasing his talents in front of the cameras.

"It gets you buzzing and mentally prepared for the fight," he added.

"There's a better buzz, for me anyway, when there's a lot of people watching and when the cameras are on you.

"I had 63 people there; the venue only holds 300-400, and there were eight boxers, so that was brilliant."

Coach Billy Nelson praised Morgan for "comfortably" winning "after a very short camp because of injury", and added on Twitter: "Stepping up to six rounds next month; (the) future's good for this 19-year-old."
