After two fan-friendly wars with Jahmaine Smyle, Darryll Williams says it's now time for him to display his boxing skill.
On June 23rd, the 16-0 Londoner is back in action at The O2. Last April, Williams picked up the English Super-Middleweight Title after 10 gruelling rounds with Smyle, before winning a rematch three months later.
"For me it was good because I like having a fight anyway. I think it really showed boxing fans how much of a heart I've got and how much fire I have in me," he told the BoxNation Podcast.
"It's for this fight now to show the other part of me which is more of a boxing ability that I have, rather than just throwing punches."
At both domestic and world level, the British 168lbs scene is thriving. George Groves and James DeGale currently hold World Titles and will be hoping to unify later this year.
Domestically the likes of Mark Heffron and Lerrone Richards are rising through the ranks, while Lee Markham and Vijender Singh meet for the Commonwealth Title next month.
'Ferocious' Williams revealed that he will be looking for more belts if he wins next week: "Moving on to British and Commonwealth Title fights would be amazing this year."
Episode 28 of the BoxNation Podcast features rising Super-Lightweight talent Jack Catterall and 'Royal Storm' Isaac Dogboe.
