Louis Isaacs is super confident and in no mood to mess about ahead of his bill-topping slot at London’s famous York Hall on Aug 7 on a card promoted by Mo Prior, in association with Fight Academy.

The unbeaten Islington fighter gets his first real test as a pro when he takes on Epsom’s Dan Morley in an eliminator for the Southern Area Welterweight Title, live on Fightzone.

Both aged 24 with a perfect 6-0 record; on paper it’s hard to split the pair … but that’s not how Louis is eyeing the encounter. A former London amateur champion with over 50 wins from 75 bouts, the Londoner says he is on a different level to Morley and predicts an early finish if his opponent turns up for a fight.

“I’ve seen little bits of him, but I didn’t know him from the amateurs because he didn’t have that many fights, and our paths never crossed,” explained Isaacs, a full-time pro who used to be trained by Fightzone pundit, Glenn McCrory.

“I’ve seen a few YouTube clips of him [as a pro]. If he comes to fight he’s going to come unstuck because I’m a lot stronger than him, and if comes with a gameplan then I’ll outbox him.

“He’s a good fighter, he’s unbeaten, he’s confident but it’s going to be a bit too soon for him. He won’t come forward onto me, I know that for a fact. If he comes forward he’s going to get taken out, one hundred per cent.

“I’ve been in this pro game a long time. I’ve been in with top fighters in sparring and you can’t read too much into sparring, but I know what I can do. He’s never been in with a fighter like me, I tell you that. My amateur experience, all the training I’ve done with different trainers, I’ve learnt bits off them all.

“If I can’t beat him with my experience then I don’t know what to do! Every fight I go in like it’s my last, I put everything on the line. I’ve been boxing since I was seven; fighting all my life. I can do it all. I can box, I can fight, I can counterpunch on the back foot and front foot.

Fightzone looks like a great platform for me to fight on and I’m looking forward to showing everyone what I can do – it’s about time!”
