Ceylan & Lowe Continue War Of
Words At Final Press Conference
Dennis Ceylan (18-0-1, 8 KOs) and Isaac Lowe (13-0-1, 5 KOs)
continued their war of words today at the final press
conference ahead of their European Featherweight title fight
on Saturday night at the Ceres Arena in Aarhus, Denmark.
Ceylan, who will be making the first defence of his EBU
belt, said he has been motivated by Lowe’s behavior in the
build up to the fight, and that he intends to punish the
British boxer when they meet in the ring.
‘’For me, this fight is personal. I’ve not felt this way

incident which occurred during a promo shoot last month.
‘’This has given me more motivation than ever, and I look
forward to knocking some sense into him on Saturday. It’s a
big fight for me and it’s a big fight for Denmark. I promise

Lowe says he is confident of dethroning Ceylan, and has
promised to take the Danish champion into deep waters and
beat him in his own backyard.
‘’Dennis is not going to know what to do when he faces me in
the ring,’’ he said. ‘’If he thinks it’s personal, we can
make it personal. I’m going to take him to places he’s never
been before, and I’m going to beat him up. I’m not here for
a holiday; I’m here for his belt. He’s going to need every
man in Denmark to beat me.’’
Coaches Frank Holm and Jimmy Harrington were also in
attendance, with both men backing their fighters to get the
"Lowe has a good jab and moves well, but he's not on the
same level as Dennis. He hasn't got the same timing, vision
or class," said Holm. "He is a good fighter, I’ll give him
that, I just can't see him giving Dennis any problems on
‘’I’m not going to give away our game plan, but we’ve looked
at Dennis’ previous fights, we’ve looked at his strengths
and his weaknesses, and we’re very confident Isaac is going
to bring the belt home,’’ said Harrington.
