Isaac Lowe says it is a “dream come true” to be finally sharing a bill with life-long friend Tyson Fury.
Morecambe’s Commonwealth featherweight champion will be on the undercard when the resort’s world heavyweight champion defends his titles in a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko at the Manchester Arena on July 9.
It has always been ambition for the 22-year-old to fight on the same night as Fury as he looks to continue his rapid rise on another big stage.
“It’s going to be quite emotional for both of us I think,” Lowe, 12-0-1 as a pro, said.
“It’s the first time we’ll be on the same card.
“We’re very good mates, like brothers. It’s a dream come true.
“I thought Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton was a huge stage to fight on but this is even bigger, the undercard of a fight for the world heavyweight title.”
Lowe’s opponent is yet to be confirmed with the fight likely to be either a first defence of the Commonwealth title he won by stopping Marco McCullough on the Frampton-Quigg undercard back in February or for a fringe World Boxing Organisation belt.
The latter would catapult the Westgate Warrior up the world rankings and despite being in no rush to move on, the former English champion is keen to seize any opportunities that come his way.
“I’m 22 years old and I don’t want to rush but boxing’s a funny game,” said Lowe.
“You’ve got to take your chances when they come about.
“I’m not going to hold back. I want to fight the best, I want to be the best, I want to be a world champion and I’ll do whatever it takes to get there.
“We’re just waiting to see who the opponent will be (on July 9).
“The WBO ranking belt is the one I’m looking for to be honest.
“It would be another belt to add to the collection and it could even put me in the WBO top 10.
“I could be picked out as an opponent for one of the world champions then.
“It would put me in line for some big fights.”
Lowe is back over in Doncaster training with Jimmy Harrington and Dave Hulley at Freedom ABC and after some over indulgence after lifting the Commonwealth title, the former Lancaster Boxing Academy man is confident he’ll be fit and firing come fight night.
“I’ve been back training for about six weeks, it’ll be nine in the end.” he said.
“I’ve come back a bit overweight as per usual, me being me I enjoyed myself.
“But I’m feeling fit and the weight is coming off. I’m bang on weight already four weeks out.
“Doncaster is great and I’m being really well looked after.
“I do miss Morecambe and Lancaster though. I don’t want people to think I’ve left the area, that’s where I’m from and I’m doing it for the town.”
