Also on the under-card of the Campbell v Connelly fight was an eagerly anticipated heavyweight clash.

Billed as a final eliminator for the Commonwealth heavyweight title, currently held by David Price, the fight saw tow renowned big punchers pitted against each other.

In one corner was Richard Towers, a giant of a man who has recently been assisting, until injury saw the fight called off, David Haye in his preparations to take on Tyson Fury. Whilst in the other corner was Lucas Browne, an Australian who had only been taken the distance on two occasions in his 17 fight record.

Many of the pundits expected Towers, who had stopped eleven of his fourteen opponents to dominate but the rugged, muscular Australian had other ideas. Browne, getting beneath Towers punches managed to hurt Towers in the third and fourth rounds before forcing a stoppage in round five.

Managed by Ricky Hatton, can now look forward to bigger and better things whilst Towers, who looked strangely ineffective in this fight, will need to go away and assess which route to take next.
