Lowe and Speight for English title confirmed for Leeds
Unbeaten Morecambe talent meets Devon man on September 5.
Isaac Lowe will face Jamie Speight for the vacant English Featherweight title at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on September 5, live on Sky Sports.
Unbeaten Morecambe talent Lowe is in his 11th pro fight and first on TV, and the 21 year old will be looking to make a big statement in his first title fight, and second English title bout on the bill as Andy Townend defends his Super Featherweight strap against Lee Glover.
Speight will have other ideas though as the Southern Area champion fights for the title for the second time having taken on show headliner Josh Warrington for the belt in in Leeds in March 2013.
Lowe’s clash with Speight is part of a huge night of action in Yorkshire as Warrington defends his Commonwealth and WBC International Featherweight titles against Joel Brunker.
St Helens star Martin Murray will take part in his first championship bout since facing Gennady Golovkin, unbeaten Birmingham Super Flyweight star Kal Yafai is in action and unbeaten Light Heavyweight star Callum Johnson faces Tony Hill.
