Danny Williams/Audley Harrison may replace injured Matt Skelton
Due to a hand injury, Matt Skelton (21-1, 18 KOs) has pulled out of his December 9 fight with Audley “A-Force” Harrison (20-2, 15 KOs) at the London Excel Arena in the UK.
Promoter Frank Warren has contacted one-time Mike Tyson conqueror and one-time Vitali Klitschko victim, Danny “The Brixton Bomber” Williams (36-5, 29 KOs), who has split two fights with Skelton, and has offered him another shot at A-Force Harrison, who Williams met and defeated in a lackluster affair last December.
According to Ant Evans in SecondsOut.com, Williams has been “training like a dog” and his weight is under 19stone. One stone equals 14 pounds, so Danny Williams, both a chowhound and fighter at heart, is looking pretty mean and lean at a seemingly semi-svelte 266 pounds. When he fought Skelton the second time he tipped the scales at 21 stone or 294 pounds, so maybe things are looking up for Danny Williams.
