Sam Bowen "Good Luck Maxi, You're Going To Need It!"

Leicestershire Super-Featherweight, Sam Bowen Bids To Win The British Super-Featherweight Crown This Weekend In Front Of His Hometown Support.

As boxing fans, we can't help but grow excited when an exciting young prospect burst into the professional boxing ranks. Now I'm sure those reading this have heard the names Lewis Ritson, Josh Kelly or Joshua Buatsi. But have you all heard the name, Sam Bowen? Well, if you haven't ladies and gentleman do pay attention. Because the most hardcore amongst British boxing fans are billing this young man from Leicestershire as one of the most exciting prospects this country has to offer.

Sam 'Bullet' Bowen hails from the town of Ibstock some thirteen miles from the city of Leicester. He began boxing at aged eleven and hasn't looked back since. He carries with him a great amateur pedigree"I 106 fought, 92 wins and stopped 45 opponents". Some of those wins included victories over Olympian and Matchroom fighter, Joe Cordina, Sam McNess, Chris Kongo and Shafiq Asif.

Sam's path through the professional ranks goes without the glitz and glamour or some of the names he beat as an amateur.In fact, he still has a Monday to Friday 9-5 job. So his path to professional glory has its added stresses "When I've got a fight coming, with working ill run before I go to work in the morning. So I'll be running at 4.45 then from work ill go to Newark or whatever the training is. So on a long day, I'm up at quarter to five and I won't get in until 8/9 o'clock" 

"When I'm in full training they are all long, tiring days".

But it is fair to say that Sam has suffered his fair share of frustration in his short career. Seeing fights for area, English and Commonwealth title eliminators all fall at the purse bid or negotiation stage. Giving him the reputation in many eyes of as avoided fighter   "I don't think they want to run the risk more than anything. Its been so frustrating these last twelve months"

"I was matched against Jupp for the English and Barrett for the English too. I've wasted the last year because they both withdrew. Overall I've had five fights pull out. That was terrible because I wasted a year in which I could have got a title. Zelfa Barrett really frustrated me, he put something on youtube saying he wouldn't boxing me because there was nowhere to go after the English. But what makes you laugh is he ended up boxing another lad for the English anyway after he withdrew from me. 

On his opponent Maxi Hughes. "Southpaws don't affect me. My main sparring partners as an amateur were all southpaws so that doesn't bother me one bit. He's a good fighter. But its hard to gauge because in watching fights where he has lost against guys like Martin J Ward it's difficult because Martin fights in a completely different style to me. I'm gonna come forward and we'll see how he can handle it. He hasn't fought anyone that's going to come forward at him like I will. I'm not worried in any way shape or form. I like the fact he's a southpaw because I'm so used to it. I'm feeling confident and I'm excited. Its been a long time coming."

And if he wins the title ... "Then the guys that avoided me have something to box for. They run the risk of getting beat by me, but if I've got a title then all of a sudden I'm worth a risk on the off chance they'll beat me".

And his final words .."Good Luck Maxi, you're going to need it!"

From all of us at IntuBoxing we hope for an entertaining fight, that both men get home safely and of course ... May the best man win!
