The former Minnesota State Junior Welterweight Champion has a new hairdo as he's looking to get back to his winning ways. Morris (11-4) has dropped two of his last three fights, but he's also won five of his last seven. Caraway's won four of his last five. They're the main event for the event January 18th at Grand Casino.

"It is big, but I hate waiting around and want to get in there right away. I want to get in there and knock him out and make a statement, but if we have to go the distance, I am ready to go the distance," says Morris.

Duluth pro boxer Danny Huffman (1-0) is also on the card. He's scheduled to fight Lucas Kennedy (1-1) of Topeka, Kansas.
