UNBEATEN Richard Towers will be targeting Britain’s top heavyweights by the end of this year, claims former world champ Ricky Hatton.

Towers, aged 32, bids for his 13th successive win at Ponds Forge on March 24. And before long Hatton expects the Sheffielder to be facing Tyson Fury and David Price who are moving up the world rankings.

Hatton said: “Tyson and David have been getting all the attention, but I want Richard hot on their heels. I’m ready to let Richard off the leash.

“I’m sure he’ll back up my belief in him and do the business on our Sheffield show.”
