The Westgate Warrior wants to follow good friend Tyson Fury to the top of boxing.

Isaac Lowe may only be heading into his fourth professional fight at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens this Friday, June 7, but he knows what he wants to achieve.

And with Bentham bruiser Tomi Tatham on the same VIP Boxing card the 19-year-old featherweight believes it is a good time for boxing in the Lancaster and Morecambe district.

He said: “Things are looking up for Lancaster and Morecambe.

“You’ve got big Tyson in the town, you’ve got Tomi, Phill (Fury, Tyson’s cousin). There’s a few boxers and we’re all doing good.

“Tyson’s on the way to getting a world title and let’s hope I’m the second one to follow.”

The unbeaten Lancaster Boxing Academy fighter will look to extend his perfect record against lightweight Abdul Rashid.

The Manchester 38-year-old has just one win in 12 fights but will be take in around a half-stone weight advantage on Friday night.

But Lowe isn’t phased and although hoping to get some more ring time, admits he wants a stoppage win.

He said: “I’m just looking to get a few more rounds under my belt.

“It’s a four-rounder so I’ll just box for two or three and then by the last one I’m going to go for it and try him out of there.

“I want another KO, I’m not happy with a points win.

“The weight difference doesn’t bother me, when he gets hit by me I’ll be hitting him like a 9st 7 man.

“He’ll be feeling liking he’s fighting a lightweight anyway so it doesn’t make a difference.”

And under the watchful eye of trainer Bob Howard, Lowe believes he’s in the best shape of his life and is learning all the time.

He said: “I’ve done some good sparring down in Manchester and some people have been helping me out in the gym so I’m just learning new things every day.

“I’m trying to keep my hands up more and adapt to the pro style more than anything.

“Training is going fantastic. I’m as fit as I’ve ever been and I just can’t wait for the fight now and I wish it had been last week.

“I can’t wait to get in there on June 7 and get another victory for Team Lowe.”

The show will be headlined by a Welsh super featherweight title fight between Mark Evans and Chuck Jones.

Tickets, priced £30 for general admission and £50 for ringside, are available from Isaac on 07799 281071 or Bob on 07951 191717.
