Isaac Lowe, friend and sparring partner of Tyson Fury, thinks his title fight with Nick Ball on the undercard of the Gypsy King showdown with Dillian Whyte will overshadow the main event.
The undercard, which also features Tyson’s younger brother, Tommy Fury, has been the subject of much criticism.
But Lowe thinks he will create fireworks in the ring at Wembley Stadium as the British duo battle for the WBC Silver featherweight title.
“This is the biggest fight of my life.” Lowe told talkSPORT.
“I don’t have time to worry about what some keyboard warriors are writing on their Twitter about the undercard.
“At the end of the day, there’s £40m at stake for the main event and they have to try and get some money back.
“The Nick Ball and I fight will steal the show, no doubt. So make sure you’re in the arena or listening and you’ve got plenty of beer in you and some popcorn ready and you’re in for a treat.
Ball, the 25-year-old Liverpudlian, is known for his aggressive style and, standing just 5ft 2in, he likes to get inside and throw bombs – but Lowe insists he won’t back down.

“I’m going to meet the bully in the ring and just stand by him,” he said. “You know what they say about bullies, they’re usually no good when they get bullied back.
“He’s boxed 15 mates and he’s punched people who aren’t going to fight back, but when he’s in the ring with someone who’s going to fight fire with fire, we’ll see what he’s made of and get away with it. he really is as good as what i hear in the boxing world.
“Going back to Tyson vs Wilder, put it on the bully and the bully will go down, so once I put it on him I think we’ll see a completely different fighter.”
This fight will take place in front of an expected 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium, but Lowe is no stranger to boxing on the biggest stage having fought on a number of Fury undercards.
“I have a lot of experience now and I’ve boxed all over the world,” he said. “I was the mainstay of the George Groves vs. Chris Eubank Jr fight and there were around 20,000 fans at the MEN Arena there so I’m confident in my abilities.
“Obviously I’ll get a few tickles in the night, I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t, but I’ll be fine and I’ll be up to it.
“When I first went to LA and fought there it was a dream come true and when I boxed at the MGM Grand it was mega, all the great fighters have boxed there- low.
“But obviously with Wembley I love football, so to go to Wembley and think I’m going to box in the middle of the center circle in front of 90,000 people, it’s going to be a great atmosphere and it’s going to be electric.”
Lowe and Ball will be competing for the WBC Silver featherweight belt and Lowe believes that if he emerges victorious, a world title could be in the not too distant future.
“I think I’m at the elite level and if I boxed anybody on this card I wouldn’t be training hard and I wouldn’t be in and I wouldn’t have fire in my stomach and I wouldn’t put them on the nerves,” the fighter told talkSPORT.
“So I needed someone to get me back into full training and focus on the job at hand.
“Obviously Nick Ball is a good strong boy and he’s undefeated, he’s got nothing to lose and he’s coming to put it all on the line, but if I win and I get WBC Silver, which is a huge title , that puts me in pole position for a world title.
“So it was a no-brainer and if you want to be good you have to beat these people and motivate yourself for these kinds of fights.”
