Holm: "Ceylan Is On A Different Level To Lowe"
Coach Frank Holm says Dennis Ceylan (18-0-1, 8 KOs) is on a
different level to Isaac Lowe (13-0-1, 5 KOs) and is
confident his fighter will retain the European Featherweight
title on March 18 at the Ceres Arena in Aarhus.
‘’Of course, we’re taking Lowe very seriously, there are no
easy fights at this level, but I’m very confident Dennis
will win,’’ says Holm, who has guided the Aarhus-boxer from
the amateur ranks to European title success.
‘’Boxing wise Dennis is on a different level, and with his
guard and movement he shouldn’t have a problem with a
fighter like Lowe. Lowe has a good jab and he moves well,
but he’s not on par with Dennis. He hasn’t got the same
timing vision or class.
‘’In my opinion, Lowe is not as good as Ryan Walsh, who
Dennis beat comfortably. He has not faced anyone special in
his career and he hasn’t got anything special in his punch
‘’For Dennis, it’s all about keeping his concentration from
the first second to the final bell. He will need to be light
on his feet and get his combinations going. If he does that,
he won’t have any trouble defending his title.’’
Ceylan has just returned from a two-week training camp in
Madrid, and Holm admits he has been impressed with what he’s
seem from the defending champion.
"We've had great sparring in Madrid with five different
sparring partners,’’ he says. ‘’It’s all been very
satisfying. Especially the last ten rounds of sparring, that
made me very happy. Dennis has shown that he is a fighter of
the highest caliber.”
The European Featherweight title fight between Dennis Ceylan
and Isaac Lowe tops an action-packed card in Aarhus, which
also features a European title challenge for rising super
bantamweight star Dina Thorslund versus Gabriella Mezei.
