KELTY boxing star Craig Morgan feels “on top of the world” ahead of his next bout on Saturday – and has credited a change in diet.

The 20-year-old will look to end a successful 2019 on a high at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena when he puts his 100 per cent record in the professional ranks on the line against Edwin Tellez.

Featherweight fighter Morgan is going for a magnificent seventh win against the experienced 25-year-old Nicaraguan, who is based in Spain, on the undercard of the eagerly awaited all-Scottish showdown between reigning Commonwealth and British bantamweight champions Lee McGregor and Kash Farooq.

It will be the first six-round bout for the ‘Iceman’ against an opponent who has had 77 bouts, and Morgan is confident he has the recipe for success.

“To be honest, my training has been perfect and I’ve changed my diet – I’ve turned vegan,” he explained.

“I’d heard about a documentary on Netflix, so I thought I’d give it a watch to see what they say and how it improves you.

"Within four weeks, I noticed a big difference in the cardiovascular side, I wake up feeling energised, and I feel better throughout the day.

“It’s a weird one but I feel really good. In the amateurs, I tried something different before every fight, but in the pros I’ve kept to the same routine.

"I thought I’m going to try it, and what’s to say it won’t work in the pros?

“I feel strong, I feel sharp and I can’t wait for Saturday now. My training camp has went like a breeze and I feel on top of the world.”

Tellez, whose record includes 12 wins and 59 losses – six by knock-out – will be the fifth boxer from Nicaragua that he has stepped into the ring with, and Morgan continued: “He’s fought everyone and is a very tough boy.

“He’s only been stopped six times so we’ll see what happens – he’s a tough operator.

"I’ve been happy with my performances this year. It will be a good end to the year if I end it undefeated.

“It will be a good night.”

The sold-out MTK Fight Night event, which will be broadcast live on ESPN+ in the USA, will include more than 100 of Morgan’s faithful followers in the audience.

“I only had a limited amount, but that’s what happens on a big show with great boxers,” he added.

“They all sold out within a week. They give you an extra arm and a leg, and hopefully they will be a bit rowdy!”
