CEYLAN:"I'M GOING TO KNOCK SOME SENSE INTO LOWE"
Press Release: Dennis Ceylan (18-0-1, 8 KOs) and Isaac Lowe (13-0-1, 5 KOs) continued their war of words 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 defense of his EBU belt, said he has been motivated by Loweís 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. Iíve not felt this way about an opponent before. Trash talk is ok, but he crossed the line when he pushed me," said Ceylan, referring to an 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. Itís a big fight for me and itís a big fight for Denmark. I promise to make the whole country happy by silencing Lowe."
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 itís personal, we can make it personal. Iím going to take him to places heís never been before, and Iím going to beat him up. Iím not here for a holiday; Iím here for his belt. Heís 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 job done.
"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, Iíll give him that, I just can't see him giving Dennis any problems on Saturday.
"Iím not going to give away our game plan, but weíve looked at Dennisí previous fights, weíve looked at his strengths and his weaknesses, and weíre very confident Isaac is going to bring the belt home," said Harrington.
