Isaac Lowe believes it is time to send out a statement to the rest of Britain’s featherweights.

The 20-year-old competes in his eighth professional contest at Leeds Town Hall on Saturday night as he looks to continue to turn heads in the sport.

The former Lancaster Boxing Academy fighter takes on durable journeyman Sid Razak on the undercard of the semi-finals of Hennessy Sports’ MaxiNutrition Knockout tournament live on Channel 5.

Lowe, whose record reads 7-0 with three knockouts, said: “I’m getting on the big shows now, I’m getting noticed.

“It’s time for me to get out there and do what I do best and that’s knock people out and make statements.”

It will be his second fight since joining up with good friend Tyson Fury’s uncle and trainer Peter and the rest of Team Fury.

The move has seen him secure sparring with the likes of world super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg and super featherweight contender Stephen Smith at Joe Gallagher’s Gym in Bolton.

Lowe, who last fought with a four-round points victory over Ibrar Riyaz in Sheffield at the end of March, said: “You can’t get no better than sparring with a world champion.

“I’m doing six, seven, eight rounds with a world champion and holding my own with him.

“Nobody at British title standard is going to be in my shoes.

“I’ve had some top, top sparring with Stephen Smith too so come fight night nobody at English or British level is going to be able to deal with me.”

Morecambe’s top punching prospect is loving life in the Fury gym, with a new home set to open in Bolton on Wednesday, as the ever-growing stable of fighters spur each other on.

It will be a case of a little of the old and the new when Lowe takes on Razak however with his first trainer Bob Howard set to return and help out in the corner too.

The fighter known as Turbo said: “Training’s going excellent, perfect.

“I’m the fittest I’ve ever been, the strongest I’ve ever been.

“Peter’s a world-class coach, he’s done magic things for me. Look at the shape he’s got me in.

“It’ll be great to have Bob back too. He’s the man who started my career.”

If Lowe dispatches Razak as expected he hopes to keep busy, eyeing a possible undercard spot on Fury’s world title eliminator with Dereck Chisora at Manchester’s Phones 4 U Arena on July 26 as he builds up to title opportunities of his own.

He said: “I’ve got to get this fight out of the way and then hopefully I’ll be back out in June or July, maybe even on Tyson’s undercard.

“Whatever comes or goes, I’m definitely looking at the British title in the next year.”

At the top of the bill in Leeds, English light heavyweight champion ‘Tasty’ Travis Dickinson takes on Preston’s Central Area champion ‘Magic’ Matty Clarkson and newly crowned British light heavyweight champion Bob Ajisafe takes on Southern Area champion Leon Senior to decide who will compete for the first ever MaxiNutrition Knockout title.

The night will also feature Lowe’s fellow Team Fury member, former world title challenger ‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers.
