Unbeaten heavyweight Richard Towers (12-0-0, 9ko) will be targeting Britain’s top heavyweights by the end of this year. That is the expectation of Hatton Promotions head man Ricky Hatton, who is tipping the 6’8 Sheffield man to crush his giant rivals in the heavyweight division. Towers, 32, bids for his 13th successive professional win at Ponds Forge Arena, Sheffield on Saturday, March 24 when he boxes an eight rounder against a yet to be determined opponent.

Towers is a fast-rising prospect in British boxing

Before long, The Hitman expects Towers to be facing Tyson Fury and David Price who are storming up the world rankings. Hatton said: “The British heavyweight scene is as exciting today as it’s been for years due to the success of several fighters.

“Recently Tyson and Price have been getting attention, but I want to have Richard hot on their heels over the forthcoming months.

“I feel ready to let Richard off the leash now and he certainly won’t disappoint, and I am sure he will back up my belief in him to go a long way on our bumper Sheffield show.”

In the main event, local hero Ryan Rhodes will face Belarussian sensation Sergey Rabchenko for the vacant European light-middleweight crown.

The Sky Sports televised show will also feature Gary Buckland’s British super-featherweight title defence against Middlesbrough’s Paul Truscott.

Unbeaten local ticket sellers Adam Etches and Scott Jenkins will be among the prospects in action, along with Jack Perry and Maxi Hughes.
