Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Duluth, Minn. native Markus 'Hooch' Morris says he's going into this Saturday's fight against Benito Tovar trying to outbox his opponent, but he was quick to add that he won't be afraid to brawl if the opportunity presents itself.

Morris is (5-0) in his pro career with three wins via knockout, and he expects a strong challenge from Tovar in the six-round bout.

"I expect him to come out aggressive, probably looking to knock me out," Morris said. "He's got a hard punch, but I've got one, too. We'll see who can take whose."

The fight will be part of the 'Black Bear Brawl,' which is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. on Aug. 2 at Black Bear Casino.
