DaVarryl ‘Touch of Sleep’ Williamson to continue his career

22.11.03 - Heavyweight DaVarryl 'Touch of Sleep' Williamson (18-2, 16) announced today that he will continue his career following a loss to 'Baby' Joe Mesi on Sept. 27, 2003. "I cannot say for sure what happened, but that wasn't me in the ring that night, I froze, locked up and didn't do anything that I was trained to do" said Williamson. "I want to let my fans know that I have decided to continue my career, and that I have no intention of becoming a gatekeeper, journeyman or professional opponent. I want to be a champion, and I will be a champion."

Though Williamson lost his last bout, he still possess legitimate one-punch knockout power in his always dangerous right hand, which makes him a threat to anyone in the division, particularly a division that seems to be more and more muddled after each fight.

"The next six months are extremely important to my career. I lost valuable time with that hiccup against Mesi,” said Williamson. “My team and I have huddled and planned for various scenarios, and we've concluded that I can be back to knocking on the door to the Top 10-15 by Sept. 2004, but it’s going to take some hard work and some risky match-ups, but it can be done."

Williamson is back in the gym, training hard for his next bout, which he hopes to secure for an early to mid-January 2004 date.
