CRAIG MORGAN is confident that sparring with a two-time Olympic bronze medallist can help him to a second pro victory tonight.

The Kelty boxing star says he "cannot wait" to step back into the ring in Glasgow as part of the bill for St Andrew's Sporting Club's St Andrews Day international boxing evening.

Labelled as 'Legends of the Future', the event – at which Judy Murray will be guest of honour – will see Morgan showcase his talent alongside hometown boxer, Nathaniel Collins, and Cumbernauld's Andy Tham at the city's Radisson Blu hotel.

After recording a memorable debut victory over Adam Hutchinson in Paisley last month - in which he won every round - 19-year-old Morgan has been preparing for his next bout with Paddy Barnes, who won 2008 and 2012 light flyweight Olympic bronze, and 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games gold.

"My preparation has been amazing," he told Press Sport.

"He has an abundance of experience and it has given me a good confidence boost. I'm ready for the task ahead and I'm in the mood for it – on the day is when nerves will start to kick in.

"It goes through every boxer's mind that you want to impress your fans, box to the best of your ability and that you want to prove yourself.

"I cannot wait."

Morgan is relishing the chance to test himself against a more experienced opponent, continuing: "He's had 22 fights and has won 10, with seven KOs, so he's a good boy and fights eight-round fights.

"It's a bigger step up. My first fight was against a boy who has had five fights, but my next is 30-years-old and has a lot more experience. I'm second on the bill and I can't wait.

"I hope I can give him the stoppage, but I'm not going out looking for it. I just want to get the win and if I can stop him, then that'd be great.

"You're only as good as your next opponent, so I'm focused on that and then I'll take it from there."

The former Scottish 60kg youth champion, who has teamed-up with Billy Nelson, who has coached triple world champion Ricky Burns, was roared on by more than 100 friends and family at his opening bout and will have plenty of supporters heading west once more.

He added: "I've managed to sell nearly 50 tickets, which is good for a St Andrew's event, and it's amazing that they're coming to watch a boy from Kelty.

"They are my third arm and third leg and, five or six years ago, I wouldn't think that I'd have people coming to watch me fight for Fife.

"It means the world to me."
