His professional career may be in its infancy but the Westgate Warrior has his eyes firmly fixed on winning a world title.

Isaac Lowe takes to the ring for his third professional fight at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens this Saturday, April 20.

The 19-year-old featherweight is on the undercard of Brian Rose’s clash with former world champion Joachim Alcine which will be live on Sky Sports.

He said: “It’s the biggest night of my career by far.

“I’m looking forward to being in front of the Sky cameras and putting on a good performance for all my fans in Blackpool.

“I’ve been speaking to my promoter and he says if I win my next two fights I’ll be getting an area title fight.

“If I get 5-0 I’ve got a title already and that’d be another one coming back to Morecambe.

“Then next year I can move onto bigger and better things British, Commonwealth, European and maybe even world.”

Lowe, of the Lancaster Boxing Academy on White Lund, takes on small-hall veteran Delroy Spencer, looking to make it a hat-trick of professional victories. His 44-year-old opponent from Wolverhampton has had an astonishing 167 fights in a journeyman career and lost 150 of them.

But as the Morecambe man points out, “Del Boy” often goes the distance.

Lowe said: “The record shows you he’s got some experience and I won’t be taking him lightly.

“He doesn’t get knocked out much either.

“It’s doesn’t matter how hard you hit him. He’s really tricky and hard to hit. He can take a shot.

“Plan A is not to just rush in and try and knock him out because it will be a silly thing to do.

“So I’ll just sit back box, and if it comes, it comes.

“I’m not looking for the knockout.

“I’m just hoping to get the four rounds under my belt. It’s all about learning at the moment.”

Lowe, coached by Bob Howard, has also been training in Manchester with former European Light Middleweight champion Jamie Moore and Team 
GB boxing captain Tom Stalker.

The Olympian also features on the Blackpool card, promoted by Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom. The Morecambe fighter said: “My fitness 
has improved and conditioning has been a lot better.

“Bob Howard’s still my coach but daytimes I go through to Manchester and then spar with Bob in the evenings.

“I can’t complain about my training it’s been going well.

“I feel fit and healthy in myself so I’m just ready to get into action.”
