Williamson response to Liakhovich-Toney rumors
17.03.07 - By DaVarryl Williamson: In response to the rumors of a potential James Toney - Sergei Liakhovich fight: Sergei. I used to think you had a ton of heart, I came to respect you, came to respect your heart, and came to respect your abilities in the ring, but I can't respect this "mouthpiece" of yours. Is this Ivaylo talking, or are you talking from behind his skirt? Is this your decision, or your sycophant manager's decision? (I'll save you the trouble of pulling out the dictionary, it means "kiss-ass", Ivaylo)..

Why don't you just admit that they donít want to fight me because Iím a much more dangerous fight than a shot James Toney?
The White Wolf is behaving more like a domesticated dog. They want to say that I was 50% responsible for the most boring fight in heavyweight history? What has his last fight with Briggs? The most excitement came in the last 15 seconds of the fight and that was watching Sergei pick himself up off the scorerís table. Donít play games Ivaylo, just man up and admit the truth. Just say that DaVarryl Williamson is TOO dangerous for us, we donít want Sergei getting knocked out again! Itís too dangerous a fight to come back to! We can all respect that
I do find it funny though that you got knocked out in your last fight, so your "meaningful" return fight is against a fomer middleweight at the end of his career, who currently has no ranking and hasn't won by KO in over three years. James Toney brings a couple dollars to the table, Iíll admit that, but donít run around saying that Iím a meaningless fight, I canít imagine HBO or SHOWTIME tripping over themselves to make a fight between two guys that lost their last outings. You donít want the fight, thatís fine, Iíll happily move on to someone else that has the backbone to get in with a live dog and fight for a meaningful position in the heavyweight division.
Sergei, I'm ready to sign a contract and put my money where my mouth is, you pick the date, you pick the location, I enjoy the warm weather in Scottsdale and my passport is valid if you want to take this to Vitebsk, Belarus.
Man up, Sergei, take the fight or admit it's too risky for you.
I'm tired of these heavyweight hiding behind their managers and claiming "polictical asylum" when its time to take a real fight.
