Towers v Browne called off

RICHARD TOWERS has been forced to withdraw from his eagerly anticipated heavyweight clash with Lucas Browne because he is unable to obtain a visa to enter Australia.

The pair were set to meet at the Melbourne Pavilion this Thursday (July 25th) in a final elimination contest for the Commonwealth title.

After months of training, both Richard and Lucas are devastated that the fight is no longer taking place.

This was a contest that everybody was looking forward to and Hatton Promotions had worked hard to secure the coverage it deserved.

“We believe that all steps had been taken for Richard to take part in the fight,” said Hatton Promotions head of boxing Richard Poxon.

“This was going to be one of the best heavyweight clashes made this year, so it’s extremely disappointing that the fans won’t get a chance to see it.

“However, our sole focus must now be on securing a worthy opponent for Lucas to face on the 25th”.
