Norton To Appeal Williams Decision


PJ Rowson, the manager of Rob Norton, is to appeal his fighter’s 12 round split decision loss to Leon Williams last Friday in which Norton was relieved of his British cruiserweight crown.

Two judges at ringside scored the bout 116-114 and 116-113 for Williams, while the third gave it to Norton by 115- 114.

Rowson was not satisfied with the result and plans to appeal the decision to the British Boxing Board of Control.

“I think the decision has to be challenged,” Rowson told Stourbridge News.

“Bearing in mind the ringside pundits had Norton winning by ten rounds I don’t see how it can’t.

“I have already spoken to the Board regarding my concerns and I am writing to them with a formal complaint about the scores.

“People are saying this was the worst decision since Tyson Fury and John McDermott. It was an outrage.”

At age 39 the decision made by the board will of course prove to be a very serious one for the veteran boxer
