Isaac Lowe has set his sights on ruling the featherweight division after a devastating display in Blackpool on Friday night.

The Westgate Warrior made it four wins out of four with a stoppage inside 90 seconds of late replacement Arron Flinn.

The 19-year-old sent his opponent to the canvas twice before referee Steve Grey brought a halt to proceedings after one minute and 19 seconds.

And Lowe believes there is no-one in Britain who can cope with his power despite his tender age.

He said: “The first knockdown was an overhand right hand where I caught him sweetly on the top of the forehead and he dropped to the floor and then the second one was a straight body shot.

“I’ve said from the minute I turned pro if I hit anyone in the body at my weight there’s no one out there, even the best British champions, that could cope with me.

“There’s no-one in England who’s going to put up their (unbeaten record) against me.

“They’ve got it all to lose and I haven’t, I’m still learning. I’m only a baby, I’m 19. Give me till I’m 21 there’ll be nobody good enough for me.”

Flinn, unbeaten in his solitary fight before Friday night, took the bout at short notice after Lowe’s original opponent, journeyman Abdul Rashid, pulled out.

The Morecambe puncher admits he would have liked more rounds but was pleased with his clinical display.

He said: “My original opponent was more of a journeyman so I was just concerned about getting the rounds in before taking him out in the later rounds.

“But with him pulling out 24 hours before I didn’t know anything about the new one, he was unbeaten and I was unbeaten so one of us had to lose.

“Early on I was just getting my hands moving and caught him with a right hand, there wasn’t much power in it but it hurt him and when I hurt people I won’t stand back and let people get back into the fight.

“I’m not paid for overtime, I’m there to do my job.”

Lowe will take four weeks off having had two fights in the last couple of months and is due out again in September.

But he admits he’s impatient to get back in the ring and make his way up the rankings.

He said: “I’ve had a word with Steve (Wood, promoter) to see if I can get a title fight this year and he’s said we’ll see how we go.

“He doesn’t want to get me up there too early to make mistakes. I’ve got nothing to lose.

“I’ve got a long, long time ahead of me in my boxing career but I want to box on Sky, I want to box on Box Office, in the biggest fights in England, in the biggest fights in the world.

“There’s a long way to go with Isaac Lowe and the best hasn’t come yet. I just hope everyone in Lancaster and Morecambe gets behind me.”
