Anthony Fowler returns to ring on October 13th.  The 27 year-old’s ring education continues in a keep-busy bout before encountering a significant step up in class.

Fowler’s highly-anticipated fight with former Team GB colleague, Scott Fitzgerald, has attracted vast interest within the boxing community.

Whilst that deal is not yet finalised. The Liverpool star will look to gain more experience as he performs at Newcastle Arena on a show being televised live by Sky Sports.

Dave Coldwell, Fowler’s mentor, is satisfied at the steps his charge has been taking to improve.

“He slowly getting to where I want him to be,” buzzed Coldwell from Chicago as he prepares Gavin McDonnell for his world title shot against Daniel Roman.

“I’ve made it clear in the past that he was a fighter who would require time and patience. But he’s starting to get it now and if he keeps listening then there’s no reason why he can’t keep on getting better.

“He’ll have another fight in Newcastle next week. He’s busy working hard towards that so as long as he’s taking something from every fight.

“As long as he’s doing exactly what I tell him then I think he can have a very successful career.”


On a potential meeting with Fitzgerald, Coldwell added, “It’s still not confirmed but it’s the fight I want. Fowler is desperate for it too.

“It’s absolutely brilliant for the sport that two young lads finding their feet in the professional code are willing to meet early in the careers. Because these are the fights where they learn the most.

“I like Fitzgerald as a fighter. Although he had a bit of an off night last time out. I do think that he’s someone who will bring the best out of Fowler.

“The domestic scene at 154lbs is starting to take shape and I’m very confident that Fowler can be a big part of it moving forward.”
