Default Re: Towers pulled out the fight with Browne

Good points. Whatever you say about Harrison and Skelton they were both Europeans champions, so although they were past their prime they still had a decent record/experience etc.

I'm not sure putting Towers in with Price would be the right move really. You're suggesting that Price KOs Towers right? So why would HP sacrifice Towers when they could reschedule Browne-Towers? Then, say Browne wins, he can take the credit for beating RT, force a Commonwealth fight with Price who would likely vacate anyway.

@BettySwollocks Will do. The races here are brilliant though.

Looking forward to the next show was good to see some live boxing again!
