MGM Grand, LAS VEGAS - Isaac Lowe (17-0-3) will return to the ring for the second time in 2019 on Saturday night. He will face Duarn Vue (14-1-2) on the Tyson Fury-Tom Schwarz undercard that will be televised on ESPN2. In March he shutout Brayan Mairena over 6 rounds in the United Kingdom.
Like Fury, Lowe is trained by Ben Davison and managed by MTK Global. He said that Fury has looked great in training and expects him to put on a great performance.
"I think it is going to be a good fight, a good fight for Tyson for his first fight in Vegas. Tom is a good undefeated fighter, a young 24-0 and ranked #2 by the WBO while Tyson is at #3. So he is going to be a worthy challenge. What you have got to remember is when Wladimir Kltischko he was only 24-0 and Tyson is going to be serious on his game and will put a show on at the MGM," Lowe stated.
The 25-year-old Lowe will be fighting in the United States for the second time. In December he fought in Los Angeles on the undercard of Fury's fight against Deontay Wilder. He stopped veteran Lucas Baez in 5 rounds after dropping him twice.
He is looking to get some more exposure in the United States and hopes to continue to move up the rankings so that he is in position to fight for a world title in the next year or two.
"I am defending my WBC International title so this will move me up the ranks in the WBC. I am looking for a world title shot but the most important thing for me is to put on a good show for the American audience live on ESPN and show everybody how good I am because everybody in Britain knows how good I am so now it is time to come over to this side of the pond and show them and that is what I intend to do," Lowe told BoxingScene.com.
