Did anyone see the most comical fight between Richard Towers vs Gregory Tony? Honestly, it was the most laughable fight I have seen.
Just watch the 5th round. The referee literally saved the Englishman's bacon, no doubt about it. The fight should have been stopped when Towers legs were so gone you thought he was doing a crazy dance. The ref didn't allow Tony to resume boxing until Towers basically recovered!
Then laughably later on the ref ends up pulling up the guys shorts to cover his body protector.
Just as you thought it couldn't get anymore laughable - the corner for the French guy refuses to pull him out of the fight even though he wants it stopped (this was probably a couple of times). He lasts a further one round and then pulls himself out of the fight with a dodgy elbow and then it goes down as a TKO? The corner did not pull their fighter out!
I have never seen a fight that had me in such stitches of laughter. If it really wasn't for the ref being so unbelievably inept at his job, it would be funny.
I am still giggling today at it. Even Johnny Nelson was perplexed!
If you watch one fight - honestly, take a look at this one.

I would have David Price above Fury personally.
edit - And would wait until the quigg-munroe rematch before choosing the super-bantamweight haha
