Heavy-hitting Richard Towers says lessons have been learned after Gregory Tony thriller

Posted: June 18, 2012 in Uncategorized

Undefeated heavyweight prospect Richard Towers says he learnt so much from his thrilling victory over Frenchman Gregory Tony in Manchester on Saturday.

Towers escaped his biggest scare to date to beat his durable opponent and 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.

“You just cannot underestimate any opponent in boxing,” said Towers. “I have learnt some big lessons in this fight.

“It is better to make mistakes and learn from them now then it is five fights down the line.

“I had to dig very deep but I managed to do it.

“I got hit and had the wobbles but came through.”

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.
