27.02.07 – When British heavyweight titlist Scott Gammer puts his crown on the line this Friday, March 2 against hard punching former champion Danny Williams, it’s sure to be an all-action fight for as long as it lasts but the two men will also be heralding a new initiative in live internet broadcasting..
While UK viewers can watch the bout on Sky Sports, viewers outside the UK have the opportunity to witness the entire two hour fight card from the comforts of home during a live broadcast streaming service on 101knockouts.com.
The Sports Centre in Neath, Wales plays host to this clash of heavyweight titans and Williams must step into this lion’s den, packed to the rafters with local man Gammer’s rabid fans, if he is to emerge from the heat of battle once again in possession of the British heavyweight title.
Williams (36-6, 29 KOs) has faced down steep challenges before and the “Brixton Bomber” will be forever remembered as the man who defied the odds and effectively ended the career of the once terrifying “Iron” Mike Tyson.
But Gammer (17-0-1, 9 KOs) refuses to be intimidated by the menacing Williams and has vowed that the London based veteran represents no more than a stepping stone on his way to cleaning out the domestic heavyweight scene before mounting an assault on the world stage.
No one can predict just who will win this riveting match up but thanks to 101knockouts.com, there is now a way for the world at large to see all the drama that a British heavyweight title fight card affords.
The scheduled undercard features rising British stars Damian and Ricky Owen as well as seasoned European veteran Josef Matolcsi and WBC/IBF Youth titlist Grzegorz Proksa.
