Richard Towers escapes major scare to stop Frenchman Gregory Tony at Manchester Velodrome

Posted: June 17, 2012 in Uncategorized

Undefeated heavyweight prospect Richard Towers escaped his biggest scare to date to beat durable Gregory Tony in Manchester last night.

The 6ft 8in heavy hitter now boasts a 14-0 record.

But Towers was hanging on for dear life in the fifth and only some generous refereeing saw a dazed and wobbly Englishman to the bell.

To his credit, Towers fought back in style and floored Tony three times in the eighth before the Frenchman was stopped in the ninth of a bruising encounter.
