Road to Glory HK Fight Night Ricky Hatton Hosting HK’s Biggest Ever Bout

[07/11/12] 

Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton, one of the most lethal boxers of his generation, is the promoter behind 'The Road to Glory' - the most significant fight to ever take place in Hong Kong. Scheduled for Tuesday, December 11, the main event pairs together two of the scariest blokes you've ever seen in what is also the biggest bout in Asia since Tyson fought in Tokyo in 1990. The Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre is accustomed to slightly more sedate proceedings.

The 2,000-seat temporary arena in Wan Chai will be heaving by the time the Commonwealth Title eliminator match takes place between two undefeated heavyweights: 6'8" Richard "The Inferno" Towers (14-0-0, 11 KO) of the UK and 6'4" Lucas "Big Daddy" Browne (13-0-0, 12 KO) of Australia. They look like absolute nutters - and they are. Towers is an ex-con who turned his life around after leaving prison while Browne is a former MMA fighter who's made an incredibly successful switch to pro-boxing. Frankly, the whole thing looks scripted.

The other main event will feature local champ Rex "The Wonder Kid" Tso (7-0-0, 4 KO), so you'll also get the chance to wave around your Hong Kong flags. Organised by Hatton Promotions Asia Pacific, prices range from HK$280 - 1,680 and are available through HK Ticketing. We all love the security of Hong Kong but sometimes a man needs to satisfy his blood lust. Even if that means watching someone else's blood lust in full flow with a gallon of coke in one hand and a dog in the other.
