Anthony Fowler will receive a hero’s welcome as he prepares for his homecoming bout at the Liverpool Echo Arena.

The newly turned pro will be on a Matchroom undercard set to commence on September 30 in the City of his birth.

Fowler is hoping the fans turn out in full force to produce an electric and unforgettable atmosphere.

“I’m just starting camp properly Monday, it’s exciting to be in Liverpool at the Echo Arena. I can’t wait with a lot of my friends having to travel recently to Newcastle and Sheffield, at Liverpool everyone should be able to make it so the atmosphere should be unbelievable,” Fowler exclusively told World Boxing News.

‘The Machine’ admitted he has been more than content with the progression of his performances but has vowed to keep improving from each fight he contests.

“My first fight was over in a round, it wasn’t much of a fight but my second fight I had a decent opponent who was durable and had a winning record with seven KO’s. That was my first proper fight and I got plaudits from everyone, I was happy.

“I want to keep moving up every fight and within twelve to eighteen months I can be a champion which is a good goal for me. I want to progress very quickly and it’s something I believe I can do. I’m going to get better and better,” he said.

The 26 year-old joined allegiances with the well regarded and successful trainer in Dave Coldwell. The Liverpudlian admitted the pair have gelled well together.

“Coldwell’s proper cool, I couldn’t ask for a better coach. He’s teaching me every session and I learn something new each time.

“He’s got the experience with Bellew and McDonnell. I’m like a sponge and I keep feeding off them,” he concluded.
