Ryan Walsh has promised to teach Isaac Lowe "a life lesson" when he defends his British Featherweight title at the Manchester Arena on February 17.
The bout will take place on the undercard of the World Boxing Super Series Super Middleweight semi-final clash between George Groves and Chris Eubank Jnr.
Walsh, who beat Marco McCullough at the Copper Box Arena last time out in May, can’t wait to be part of what promises to be an exciting night for British boxing.
“This is such a great platform for me to showcase my skills,” said 31-year-old Walsh. “The Ali Trophy semi-final with Groves and Eubank is a mega fight, and I’m so happy that I am a part of this massive occasion.”
Lowe has been particularly vocal on social media and Walsh, who has just two losses on his record to Dennis Ceylan and Lee Selby, is looking forward to seeing if the 23-year-old can back up his words in the ring.
“This is personal between me and Lowe. I’m going to make him pay for every stupid thing he has tweeted,” said Walsh, the defending British champion, who will undoubtedly be backed by a good following from the ‘Farmy Army’.
“Lowe is good, young talented and hungry fighter. But he seems to be a very angry person. If you tweet up, be prepared to get beat up. And that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to beat him up and teach him a life lesson.”
Lowe revealed his delight to be boxing in his hometown of Manchester once again, and the undefeated fighter insists that the pair’s styles will gel perfectly to make a crowd-pleasing encounter.
“I’m so pleased to be boxing again in Manchester in front of all my own fans. I cannot wait to finally prove myself on this platform and make a massive statement. The fans better get their popcorn ready, because this has the potential to be the fight of the year!”
The Ali Trophy super middleweight semi-final between George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr. and Walsh vs. Lowe will be live on ITV Box Office on February 17.
