Towers is tragic. If not for a very helpful refereeing performance, he would have been knocked out by Gregory Tony, no question. Tony is crap and turned up in awful shape, and still had Towers on the verge of going on about 5 separate occasions.

Dallas would beat Towers I think, quite easily too.

Cornish is a few fights away from a crossroads fight with someone like Dallas, I think. Gary needs to learn to use his height better (same with a lot of these giants)

That round reminded me of Skelton-Dallas, with both Towers and Dallas just leaning over the ropes getting smashed.

Towers was very very lucky to have Basil Fawlty as the ref.

Price would put him into a coma if they ever met.

Dillian Whyte tweeted that he wants to get the fight on before the end of the year and that he knows how to beat him

If Dillian Whyte can keep the pressure on Towers for a few rounds i see him stopping Towers before the 5th round.

I'm only basing this on what i have witnessed so far on the bouts of Dillian Whyte I've seen, but I'd like to see someone take the fight to Dillian to see what he has really got too.

He's now at #58 on boxrec, above plenty names that would spank him on last nights evidence.

Him seems to make huge mistakes which with many fighters even domestically would make him struggle. There is a lot of room of improvement including throwing the jab a lot more to maybe work an opening for the over the top right which looks dangerous.

he has a good story, and if he started boxing when he was young and stuck at it, he could go far, but doesnt have the nouce, but hes gonna do well at domestic level, and trust me, he messes mcdermott up big time, he wins easily, personally i think him and tyson fury is a good fight, although fury wins.

I don't doubt he could be good but he needs to use his size, throw more punches instead of looking for the big right every time. work him with the left jab and a few little combitnations to open him up for the big right. People that size do not seem to use that to their advantage
