Williams Views X-rated Skelton Video

29.06.05 - Brixton puncher Danny Williams is even more confident of regaining his British Heavyweight crown after watching a video of Matt Skelton getting KO'd in a K1 fight. Dynamite Dan, the former WBC World title challenger, takes on the Bedford brawler at the Bolton Arena on Saturday 16 July in an explosive main event titled 'Who's the Daddy?' to find out who is the best heavyweight in Britain..

Williams searched hard to find the video tape of Skelton being knocked out by Brazilian Francisco Filho in a K1 martial arts clash nearly five years ago and has finally uncovered it.

He said, "The video took a while to get hold of and I bet Skelton wishes it was still in hiding but I'm glad that I've seen it because it has confirmed what I knew all along - that he has no chin,"

"Skelton was knocked out cold by an uppercut. How's he going to cope with my uppercuts when I'm up close and landing them? Not only am I good at working close with the uppercut I will also be setting him up for some big overhand rights,"

After Skelton left K1 he crossed-over to boxing where him bulldozed his way to became the British and Commonwealth Champion in only his 13th fight and is currently undefeated in 16 fights with 15 knockouts.

"Skelton is not invincible. He can only win by bullying and mauling his opponents but as I've said before I will fight him at his own game even though I'm the superior boxer. I'm prepared to stand there with him trading blows and we will see who comes out best." Finished Williams.

The undercard features the sensational professional debut of boxing hot-shot Amir Khan in a four-round contest at lightweight.

The Bolton wonderboy is currently training in Cuba with Olympic Champion Mario Kindelan, who he finally beat in May this year after his loss to him in Athens, before he returns to England to finish his preparations.

A quality packed undercard features Chorley star Michael Jennings challenge Birmingham's Jimmy Vincent for the Vacant British Welterweight Championship. Sheffield's former record breaking British Light-Middleweight champion Ryan Rhodes, WBU World Featherweight Champion Stephen Foster Jnr and Margate's former WBU Light-Middleweight Champion Takaloo. Welsh star Tony Docherty, Leicester puncher Martin Concepcion, Liverpool's Derry Matthews and Tony Quigley complete the card.
