Aaron Lowery say’s it will be survival of the fittest next Saturday night, when the undefeated Queensbury British Light Middleweight champion returns to action to make the second defence of his crown against one of the most league’s most feared competitors.
The twenty nine year old builder from Ramsgate won the title back in March 2012 with a stunning display of guts and courage to rip the title away from reigning champion Dan Lawrence in front of the Sky Sports camera’s, and successfully defended the belt against the former championin in June, but Lowery will now face arguably his toughest career assignment on Saturday March 16th when he returns to the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey to face three weight Queensbury Boxing League champion Gareth Gardner in a mouth watering showdown.
The fight will be Lowery’s first taste of action in over eight month’s after damaging his elbow during his first defence, but the Ramsgate pugilist believes he will be more than ready to lock horns with Gardner thanks to the incredible efforts of his long term mentor John O’Neill, who Lowery credits all his ring success to.
“I think this is going to be an incredible fight, and its all going to come down to who is the fittest and smartest in their on the night, commented Lowery.
“We are both coming into this bout with great respect for each other, but this is a sport and we both want to win this fight to prove who the top dog in the division is, so I’m really looking forward to getting in there now and testing myself”
“ I’ve been really pushed over the last couple of month’s by my trainer John O’Neill who has been a real inspiration to me over the last few years, and I couldn’t have asked for a better training camp so far, and its nice to be involved as one of the main events on such a massive televised show”
Also featuring in action on the undercard of the league’s aptly named Nowhere To Hide promotion will be Margate’s Light Middleweight pocket rocket Alan Wilks who will get his chance to add his name to the list of champions produced by the O’Neills gym when he takes on former British title challenger Nathan Leeson for the vacant English belt. Former amateur standout Wilks has established himself as one of the divisions major contenders after racking up several dominant displays since joining the competition twelve months ago, but Leeson will be a considerable step up in class for the thirty nine year who has promised his army of Thanet fans his best performance when the pair collide.
