Warrior Williams calls it a day
THE ‘BRIXTON bomber’ Danny Williams has announced his retirement from boxing for a second time.
The 38-year-old former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion originally retired in February 2010 after being halted in two rounds by Dereck Chisora but returned to action in March of this year.
NO MORE ASPIRATIONS: Williams
Williams finally decided to call it a day after being stopped in two rounds by Leif Larsen in Sweden last Friday (December 2).
Speaking about his decision to hang up his gloves, Williams told website BoxRec:
“Look I have got no aspirations. I know I can’t win any titles. I just love fighting. Last weekend basically showed that my punch resistance has totally gone – I have no punch resistance.”
Williams’ biggest career win came against ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson in July 2004 where he knocked out Tyson in the fourth round. That victory led to a world title shot against Vitali Klitschko who dismantled Williams in eight rounds in December 2004.
The south Londoner retires with a record of 44 wins (33 knockout) and 11 losses.
