Having the chance to train at Tyson Fury's new state-of-the-art gym in Morecambe has given Isaac Lowe a new lease of life ahead of his long-awaited return on next Friday's #MTKFightNight.
Undefeated 'Westgate Warrior' Lowe (20-0-3, 6 KOs) returns at the event on March 12, which takes place at the University of Bolton Stadium and is broadcast live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV. He takes on Jonny Phillips (5-6, 2KOs), who won over fight fans with his performance in last summer's Matchroom Fight Camp. He hasn't won any of his last five fights, but he comes to have a go so the reigning WBC International featherweight champion will need to be at his very best to avoid any slip ups.
27-year-old Lowe has had his last four training camps out in America, but is feeling fresher than ever after spending the last few months training in his beloved hometown of Morecambe alongside Fury.
Lowe said: "I'm thrilled to be getting back in the ring. I've been out for 13 months so it's been a long time coming, and I'm happy to be getting under the spotlights again.
"I've been getting some good rounds in at the gym and training has been going good. My weight is good, I'm feeling fit and sharp and I'm ready for fight night.
"It's been great having the chance to train back at Morecambe Football Club for this camp. I've had my last four camps out in America, so being able to train half a mile away from your doorstep is brilliant.
"Training at the club you support is brilliant, and hopefully one day I get a chance to fight there at the ground too. It would be a dream come true for me."
