Lee McGregor and Isaac Lowe are set to deliver an exciting all-British showdown on December 1, and fans can catch all the action live and free on Channel 5. These featherweights will face off for the WBO European title in the headline bout at the Toughsheet Community Stadium in Bolton, as part of a Wasserman Boxing event.
Adding to the excitement, the co-main event, titled ‘High Stakes,’ features a flyweight clash between Chloe Watson and France’s Justine Lallemand, both vying for the prestigious European title. The fight, in association with Ladbrokes, Numan, and Infinitum Entertainment, promises a thrilling contest with a coveted place in the WBO world rankings up for grabs for the winner.
McGregor is making a comeback after an intense battle against Erik Robles for the IBO world title, which was a candidate for Fight of the Year. On the other hand, Lowe, who is the cousin of heavyweight champ Tyson Fury, is looking to rebuild his career following a tough loss to Nick Ball last year.
December 1 is also a pivotal moment for Chloe Watson, who aims to solidify her position as the future of women’s boxing in Britain by claiming her first professional title.
Lee McGregor expressed his confidence, saying, “I like what I’ve been hearing from Isaac because he’s going to come and have a go on December 1. But I will out-box and out-fight him. I’m moving up to featherweight, and I am going to be so strong. In my last fight against Robles, I was nowhere near 100%, and the people close to me know the reasons for that. This is a big fight, and one the fans will like. After this win, it won’t be long before I am challenging for big titles again. Isaac, you are going to get the best version of me. You have been warned.”
Isaac Lowe countered with his own fighting spirit, “This is a great fight for the fans. We are going to punch the living daylights out of each other for 30 minutes – that’s if Lee can last the 10 rounds. The people around him think I’m past it and over the hill, but there’s no way Lee is beating a fully fit and focused Isaac Lowe. I can mix it with the best, and Lee won’t be able to cope with me on December 1. Lee, what are you going to do when you lose to me?”
Kalle Sauerland, Head of Global Boxing at Wasserman Boxing, commented, “McGregor vs Lowe has ‘British classic’ written all over it! This is the highest stakes for both men, with world title aspirations, pride, and national honor all on the line, and so it has all the ingredients to be yet another fight of the year contender, live and free on Channel 5.”
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes added, “Lee McGregor is on a redemption mission after suffering his first defeat last time out, and the odds very much favor him to bounce back to winning ways against Isaac Lowe on December 1. It has all the ingredients to be an enthralling contest, but we believe McGregor has that bit more skill and power to come out on top.” The stage is set for a thrilling evening of British boxing action on December 1.
