Morecambe based boxer Isaac Lowe is looking to win the EBU European featherweight title when he takes on Denmark’s Dennis Ceylan in Aarhus on Saturday in the Ceres Arena.
Lowe, 23, is looking to add the European title to his English and Commonwealth belts and certainly believes he can cause an upset and defeat the Dane in front of his home crowd.
“I’m fully relaxed and fully confident, I’ve put all the hard work in the gym, everything’s done and I’m really looking forward to it,” said Lowe.
“I’ve never really been this excited before a fight and it’s my time to shine.”
The “Westgate Warrior” has 14 professional bouts on his record with 13 wins and one draw and he believes this experience will prove decisive on Saturday but also acknowledges his opponent’s experience too, with the home favourite having 18 fights to his name.
“He’s a European champion and he’s an experienced fighter too, its not like he’s a novice fighter and he’s boxed on the big stage as well,” admitted Lowe.
“However he’s the one that’s got all the pressure on his shoulders , he’s the one that’s fighting in his home-town and he has to win.”
Embracing this underdog psyche with such charisma can only serve to benefit Isaac and should he add the European title to his growing list of achievements then he’ll have surely forced his way into contention for a shot at a world title.
