By Max Budgen: Toks ‘Viper’ Owoh (11-5-0) has today branded Leon ‘Solid’ Williams (7-3-0) a ‘coward’ and has publicly called him out to fight for the Southern Area Cruiserweight Title.
Owoh explained that many approaches have been made to Williams and his team to fight, but every approach has been met with a point blank refusal for the pair to get the fight on, even though Owoh now holds the mandatory status to fight for the belt.
The Southern Area Council has now released the opportunity for purse bids to be received for the fight and yet the ‘Viper’ still says the match won’t be made. ‘No matter what anyone says or does the fight will never happen," siad Owoh. "They call him Leon ‘Solid’ Williams what a joke, more like Leon ‘Liquid’ Williams. Liquid for the amount of squirming he is doing to avoid the fight’
Clearly unhappy with the lack of response from Mr Williams, Owoh then went on to explain why he believes the Streatham based man is avoiding him, ‘He won’t fight me simply because he knows it won’t last four rounds," insisted Owoh. "I may be 38 years-old but I’m fresh and feel better than ever before, ‘Liquid’ knows it and doesn’t fancy the job.’
Toks has always been of the opinion that you fight anyone who is willing to get in the ring with you, hence the anger that is being thrown towards the less than willing Southern Area Cruiserweight title holder. He ended his tirade by promising, ‘I’ll send him sprawling, trust me that glass chin of his will be shattered into hundreds of tiny little pieces.’
These are very strong and brave words from the former IBF Inter-Continental Super Middleweight title challenger who has only had two outings in the past two years. The only thing that remains to be seen is whether or not Owoh’s attempt to publicly show up Williams, will get the pair into the ring.
