Queensbury Boxing League British Light Middleweight champion Dan Lawrence will make the first defence of his title next month at the Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey when he faces Margate’s Aaron Lowrey in a mouth watering clash at the big Night Of Champions promotion.
Thirty two year old former junior ABA champion will be making his first appearance back in the UK’s premier boxing league since his epic battle with previous 11 stone ruler Marlon Stuart back in September when he ripped the title away from the champion during a memorable evening. But Lawrence will face a stern test of his championship credentials on Saturday March 10th when he steps back into the same arena to defend his crown for the first time.
Cornering the champion on the night will be former British and Commonwealth Super Bantamweight champion turned trainer Matt Marsh who was the architect behind Lawrence’s triumphant victory last time out, and the Bexleyheath roofer is confident Marsh will be more than capable of leading him to victory once more in front of the Eurosport camera’s.
“Matt Marsh knows exactly what to do to get me into shape to face this guy next month and we have been working in stages to ensure I am in peak condition when I step through those ropes next month”.
“We’ve been working on lot’s of new training techniques some we’ve never tried before, but I’ve improved and performed better in my last two fights with Matt so I’m confident these new ideas will pay off”.
But the man looking to dethrone Lawrence will not be intimidated by the champion when the night arrives, but from what footage Lawrence has seen of his future opponent he believes he’s got what it takes to put on another winning performance.
“I’ve watched Lowrey’s last fight on DVD and his style is quite similar to mine which should make for a great fight. I always believe pressure makes you perform better and I’m looking to stay focussed and calm when I’m in there and just put on a great show”
The show is being filmed by Eurosport as part of the historic deal struck between the channel and Queensbury Boxing League promoters Ross Minter and Alan Foley and will be shown on a taped delay shortly after the live show.
