Quotes

Bowes said: "I'm excited to be back in the ring headlining an MTK Fight Night, and the chance to add the British title to my Commonwealth belt will be great.

"I'd be making history as the oldest people ever to win the British title in the super-lightweight division, so it's a great incentive and is the drive behind me going for the title.

"The break has given me the time to focus. It doesn't matter how long it's taken to face Akeem, as it hasn't changed my mindset or the outcome, so it will be good to finally get it on.

"I'm expecting a good fight, and whatever he brings I'll adapt to the situation and be ready to overcome. I don't look past anybody or disrespect anybody, so we'll get the win here and then after that we'll take it from there."

Brown said: "This fight with Bowes was called off twice. He has kept me waiting for too long and he is getting it. He isn't on my level and he will find that out.

"Nothing will stop me from getting these titles. There hasn't been many events on since boxing resumed, so to be headlining an MTK Global show is very exciting and I feel like I'm one of the chosen ones.

"I can't wait to do the business. It's been over a year since I've been in the ring and fighting, so I'm more than ready. It's been an up and down rollercoaster to get to this point. I've worked myself into this position and it's finally here.

"I'm more determined than ever. I dream about this stuff and I think about it non-stop. I know I'm going to beat Bowes to become the British and Commonwealth champion, and then I want the best fighters out there."

 

Predictions

BBN Editor, Tim Rickson: “Both fighters are quite similar in style, both being counter-punchers; Bowes a little more orthodox than Brown is, but I favour Ennis-Brown to win this title fight due to his youth and overall superior skill. I also rate Brown's level of opponents better than Bowes, despite having less fights.”

 

Background

The pair do battle live on YouTube channel iFL TV on the same day in history that Frank Bruno defeated American champion Oliver McCall to win the WBC World heavyweight title. This championship clash is not quite as big as that historical event, but it's another solid six-fight card from MTK. Free boxing on a Wednesday night is always a real treat.

Bowes could make history as the 140lbs division's oldest ever champion at 36, but 'Riiddy' will have other aspirations to become the titleholder himself. The 24-year-old from Gloucester hasn't put a foot wrong in his five-year career so far, collecting English, WBC Youth World, and IBF European super-lightweight titles already over his 13 victories.

After six of the usual suspects to kickstart his career as a 6-0 pro, he stepped up to face Freddy Kiwitt (17-3, 10KOs) in 2016, who was unbeaten in 11 bouts at the time and won the Southern Area welterweight title in his very next fight. Brown then defeated Prizefighter winner Glenn Foot (23-4, 7KOs) to win the English crown. It was Foot's first defence of the English title he had won by outpointing Philip Bowes 95-93 in May 2017. Every win since then has been against a good level of competition, including current British and Commonwealth welterweight champion Chris Jenkins (22-3, 8KOs).

Bowes also has some notable scalps, including 20-0 Nathan Dale (now 22-1, 5KOs) and Liverpool prospect Tom Farrell (18-3, 5KOs).
