CRAIG MORGAN will take on his maiden six-round boxing bout next month on the undercard of one Scotland's most eagerly awaited contests.

The 20-year-old, who boasts a proud 100 per cent winning record in the professional ranks so far, will step into the ring at Glasgow's Emirates Arena on November 16 ahead of a headline showdown between Lee McGregor and Kash Farooq.

The reigning Commonwealth and British bantamweight champions will put their unbeaten records – and titles – on the line at the MTK Fight Night event, a mouthwatering collision that Kelty star Morgan believes is too close to call.

He has sparred both men in recent times and, while he's looking forward to viewing what he reckons will be a "good fight for Scottish boxing", the 'Iceman' has designs on racking up a magnificent seven in his own right.

In August, Rafael Castillo became the sixth man unable to stop the talented fighter, losing on points, despite Morgan having had less preparation time, and picking up an elbow injury in the build-up.

That, however, is behind him now and, looking ahead to what is set to be his final contest of the year, he told Times Sport: "I can't wait. The arena is sold out, and I always bring a good amount of people, which is amazing. It gives you an extra arm and a leg.

"It's a big one. Kash and Lee are both young, up-and-coming talents, and to anyone on the inside or outside looking in, it's a hard, hard fight. It's a good fight for Scottish boxing and may the best man win.

"The exposure will help me out in my future career. It's like being a football player; someone could be there scouting, and think he's the one I want.

"But I'm not fighting to be on the show – I'm fighting for myself and to win."

Morgan, whose opponent is yet to be confirmed, continued: "This is my first six-rounder. I felt I was capable of that to start with, so I can't wait for it.

"I'm training myself to fight at the top level, and world class boxers, so if my training's right, it shouldn't bother me.

"It's all about getting out there and doing my best. I'm glad to be upping the rounds; it will allow me to show people my talent and that I can do it. If I can get sixes, then I can start hitting eight rounds, and 10s, but it's all about taking my time.

"After my last fight, there were wee things to work on, so hopefully I can put that right."

The sold-out MTK Fight Night event will be broadcast live on ESPN+in the United States, in association with Top Rank and on iFL TV worldwide.
