BOXING star Craig Morgan admits he doesn't know when he'll return to the ring after a second planned bout this year was floored.

The 20-year-old, from Kelty, had been hoping to headline a show at the Glen Pavilion, Dunfermline, on Saturday night in front of almost 300 of his supporters in his bid to maintain his winning run in the professional ranks.

The 'Fife Fight Night' event, hosted by Aberdeen-based Northern Sporting Club, had been due to see the undefeated southpaw take to the ring along with two other Kingdom based fighters.

Middleweight David Winiarski, also of Kelty, had been due to make his professional debut after a fine amateur career that yielded multiple Scottish titles and international appearances, and Kirkcaldy veteran Paul Deas, who, like Winiarski, was in line for a pro bow, had joined Morgan on the bill.

However, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic had put paid to the trio's hopes of fighting for the time being, although Northern Sporting Club are hopeful of rearranging the event for a later date.

For Craig, named Sporting Champion of the Year at last year's Times Community Champion Awards, it is the second time in just three months that the pandemic has halted his bid for a first ring return since November, when he defeated Edwin Tellez.

In March, he was on a St Andrew's Sporting Club 'Friday Fight Night' bill in Glasgow before it was called off, a bout he had hoped would be his last over six rounds.

Speaking to Times Sport Craig, who has at least been able to continue to train at home, said: "That's two fights I've lost out on and the only two I had scheduled.

"It's tough, but you have to take the good with the bad.

"There's nothing you can do, so there's no point in sitting greeting about it. Everybody's in the same position, but I was looking forward to the Dunfermline one.

"I had 290 tickets waiting for me. The week before the fight that was meant to be in Glasgow, I had sold 60. I would've sold out that place; I don't think 290 would have cut it.

"It was meant to be an eight-rounder. In the next couple of months, it might go ahead, but not over eight rounds; I think I'll need to do another couple of six-rounders."

Morgan, a super featherweight, continued: "I've been able to train in the garage; I've got two bags, treadmills, a rowing machine and a couple of bikes.

"The only thing I'm lacking is sparring and the pads - for every boxer, that's the hardest part. You want to keep sharp, and the pads keep you sharp, but 99 per cent of boxers are not able to spar.

"I think I'll have at least another six then an eight, but I'll need to speak to Billy (Nelson, his coach).

"I've not really got a goal in mind because we don't know how long this will last. I just need to keep training and ticking myself over."
