Scared can cover a few different meanings.
Bowe may not have been physically scared of being in a ring with Lewis, but he may have been scared of losing his 0. Confidence is a prime motivator in a fight and it appears clear that Bowe nor his manager had the confidence of victory against Lewis.
I presume most professional are scared of losing.
