29 year old Philip “Quicksilver” Bowes has made a fine start to his career with 6 unbeaten fights but now takes on a massive step up in class when he takes on former British Champion Paul Appleby as a special feature in the “Lionheart and Braveheart” show promoted by Steve Goodwin of Goodwin Promotions at York Hall on December 7th.
Bowes says of his massive opportunity “I am delighted to have the opportunity to box someone of Paul’s credentials and this fight will show whether I am capable of getting to British title level myself which I believe I am.” Bowes continued “I do not want to build my record to 10-0 against nobodies. I want to be boxing for titles over the next 6 months and am aiming for Southern Area and English titles by that time.”
For Appleby it is a chance to continue his comeback after a win against Lee Connelly earlier this year as he targets a return to British title level.
