Morris plans to improve on impressive debut display this Friday

MARK Morris caught the eye when he made his debut in the Holiday Inn back in November, but is confident he can make people sit up and take further note when he returns to the ring in Belfast tomorrow.

The 25 year old lightweight, who is a cousin of ‘Insane’ Daniel McShane, takes only fellow undefeated novice, Ryan Corrigan in the same venue he made his debut, but predicts a more assured performance and is confident of victory.

‘The Reaper’ believes the ring rust has been oiled out of him ahead of his second bout and stresses nerves won’t play apart. As a result is confident of impressing more fight fans on a card that includes Paul Quinn, Matt Wilton,  Alfredo Meli and Anthony Upton.

“I had a good debut, but i can box a lot better than that,” Morris told

“I have got the debut nerves and some ring rust out of the way now so I am ready to put on a better fight for the fans. Training went well, we stepped it up and we did a lot more sparring. So I am fully prepared,” he added before discussing his undefeated opponent.

“Yes I face an undefeated fighter, but that means nothing to me. I am in it to win it. It is always a risk getting into the ring no matter who you face. But I am confident I will do my job and come out with the win. I want to thank everyone, who is going down to watch me and to everyone who is supporting me who can’t get to the fight.”
