On Saturday night we will finally have the answer to who is the number one Light Middleweight in the UK’s premier boxing league when the most anticipated rematch in the league’s history takes place between former 11 stone ruler Dan Lawrence and current champion Aaron Lowery.
Lawrence was riding high in the UK’s premier boxing league after demolishing Bournemouth’s Brendan Cookman inside two rounds on his league debut, and then followed that up with an incredible display back in September to dethrone champion Marlon Stuart to lift the British title, but his title reign was brought to an abrupt end back in March when he lost out to Ramsgate’s Aaron Lowery during a thrilling contest at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey. But after losing his crown and his unblemished league record Lawrence has regrouped and now feels he is more than ready to take on Lowery once more and give him a real run for his money.
“ I’m really looking forward to getting back into the ring again to face Lowery and this time I’m going in there with a different game plan which hopefully will see me return home with the belt again,” commented Lawrence.
“During our first encounter for some reason that inner fire was just not there and although I had trained incredibly hard for the fight after two rounds my whole body was just exhausted and I was not right, but this time me and my trainer Matt Marsh have been working on a different game plan and I think its going to be a different story”
After going toe to toe with Lowery over the full championship distance last time out Lawrence proved he possessed a granite chin after walking through all of Lowery’s fearsome power shots, but this time around the challenger is not planning on being there to be hit and will be looking to revert back to his winning amateur formulae that proved so successful in the unpaid ranks.
“This time I’m not looking to go toe to toe with him and stand there and be hit. I’ll be looking to get in and out quickly and score the points and I know if I do get caught I can handle his power so its going to be an exciting fight and hopefully one that people from the area will get behind me and support”
With less than five day’s to go until the most eagerly anticipated rematch in the league’s history is settled, the question of will it be redemption for the former champion will be answered very soon.
