Tyson Fury believes long-time friend Isaac Lowe will be British champion in 12 months time.
The pair have known each other for several years with the 20-year-old featherweight recently linking up with Fury’s uncle and trainer Peter and the rest of Team Fury.
Lowe, known as Turbo, will look to improve on his 7-0 record in the paid ranks when he takes to the ring against former Luke Campbell foe Andy Harris on the Hennessy Sports show at Leeds Town Hall on Saturday, May 17.
Morecambe’s heavyweight hope, who is building up to a world title eliminator against Dereck Chisora in Manchester on July 26, said: “He’s a very good prospect, he’s had some great spars with Stephen Smith, Scott Quigg and a lot of the Joe Gallagher lads so he’s improving all the time.
“When you’ve got world class sparring you’re only going to go one way and that’s up.
“He trains hard, he’s dedicated and he’s a good little fighter. Who knows what he can do? The future’s open for him.
“This time next year he should be the British champion.”
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 live on Channel 5 with the winners competing for the first ever MaxiNutrition Knockout title later in the year.
The night will also feature Lowe’s fellow Team Fury member, former world title challenger ‘Fast’ Eddie Chambers.
