Danny Williams: The Brixton Bomber’s Last Stand


28.02.07 – Hammer fisted heavyweight Danny Williams is less than three years removed from his spectacular knockout of Mike Tyson but the ex-British and Commonwealth champion now finds himself at a crossroads, awaiting what could be the last major bout of his career when the Londoner clashes with reigning British boxing champion Scott Gammer this Friday, March 2 at the Sports Centre in Neath, Wales..

Returning from bitter defeats during his last two outings against hated rivals Matt Skelton and Audley Harrison, the intimidating Williams is putting everything he has into this last crack at top level of boxing and like a cornered 265 lb alley cat, the “Brixton Bomber” aims to attack Gammer with every ounce of his being.

“Scott Gammer has underestimated me, but I will prove that I am not finished yet,” said the seething heavyweight. “Unlike my last few fights, I am in very good shape and I am motivated.”

Williams has never been short on determination, as evidenced by his refusal to quit during a bout in which he dislocated his right shoulder in the early going, only to KO his opponent six rounds later with a sizzling left hand.

But the seasoned campaigner will have to mount and sustain a furious charge if he is to overcome the younger Gammer, a surprisingly fast handed, six foot two inch, 235 lb battler who is clearly gunning for the opportunity to make a name for himself the expense of Williams.

“Gammer will be up for this fight in front of his home crowd, but this is my last chance and that’s a big difference,” said Williams. “I will win this fight and then I will be looking for revenge against Skelton and Harrison.”

The Scott Gammer vs. Danny Williams British Heavyweight Title Fight can be seen outside the UK as a live streaming internet broadcast on Friday, March 2, 2007. The two hour broadcast features a full undercard featuring up and coming British stars and quality European veterans.
