Heavyweight Richard Towers Up For First Title Fight

Unbeaten heavyweight Richard Towers is up for winning his first professional title at Manchester Velodrome, on Saturday June 16.

Sheffield’s unbeaten faces Germany's Michael Wallisch, for the vacant EU heavyweight crown on Hatton Promotions title stacked card.

The ‘Road To Glory’ bill also features a vacant WBA interim super-bantamweight title fight between Scott Quigg and Rendall Munroe, Martin Murray in championship action and Towers’ fellow steel city fighter - Ryan Rhodes facing Sergey Rabchenko for the vacant European light-middleweight crown.

Towers, 32, said: "This is the biggest fight of my life and when I get in the ring I will do my job. I have already been to Gran Canaria for warm weather training earlier this year and I am training three times a day.
I am already feeling the direct benefit from these sessions and the Wallisch fight cannot come quick enough."

Wallisch, 26, stands 6ft 5in tall and won all eight professional contests with five of his victories coming inside the distance.

But he will be dwarfed by 6ft 8in Towers who is unbeaten in 13 professional fights and rapidly closing in on men like Dereck Chisora, Tyson Fury and David Price.

Towers added: "I am blessed to have a brilliant team around me and all I have to do is be dedicated and live the life. I will fight anybody and I am getting closer to fighting guys like Fury and Price, but only when my team tell me it is right.

"I have only been boxing four-and-a-half years, but I have picked up this sport quickly. I have already sparred with Chisora and Fury - they are men I respect, but when I meet them they will discover I am unorthodox and different."

There will be a talent stacked undercard that will include former Commonwealth welterweight champion Craig Watson (20-5), unbeaten hopefuls Adam Etches (7-0), Scott Jenkins (4-0), Ryan Doyle (1-0), Jimmy Kelly (1-0).

Ticket prices are now on sale priced £125 (VIP Inner Ringside + exclusive cash bar), £100 Ringside, £55, £35 and £30. You can purchase tickets by calling Hatton Promotions hotline 01925 755 222/www.ticketmaster.co.uk/0844 847 2500/www.ticketline.co.uk/0844 888 4402/www.hmv.com
