The Westgate Warrior was in command from start to finish with Harris just managing to survive the distance, suffering a cut above his left eye in the first round and being wobbled in the fourth, as Lowe won 40-36 on referee Alvin Finch’s card.

The resort prospect, in his second fight since linking up with Tyson Fury’s uncle and trainer Peter Fury, was however critical of his display on the undercard of Hennessy Sports’ MaxiNutrition Knockout semi-finals live on Channel 5.

The 20-year-old said: “It was good but I’m a bit down because I should have knocked him out.

“Me being me I was trying to impress too much but it’s another points win and a good learning curve.

“He was a tough guy, a journeyman, at the end of the day that’s what they’re here to do, survive.

“He’s got to feed his family and if he gets stopped he can’t fight for 28 days.

“But I should have been calmer, picked my shots more and listened to Peter.

“You don’t learn over night and that’s another thing I know to do now, pick my shots more.”

Lowe was never in any danger and had Harris in real trouble but is determined to keep learning as he looks to make his mark in the sport.

He said: “The eye was badly split and I thought the referee was going to stop it with his eye.

“I was aiming too much for it but I got him in nearly every round and in the fourth I got in badly and I thought he was out of there.

“I was over trying. I’ve got to watch it over and learn from my mistakes.”
