Williams Faces Norton For British Title


Streatham’s Leon ‘Solid’ Williams has had a very good week so far. First he
beat Battersea’s Nick ‘The Ox’ Okoth via fifth round tko on Sunday, then a few days later his manager, Johnny Eames, received a call from Frank Warren Promotions’ match maker, Dean Powell, offering Williams a shot at Rob Norton’s British Cruiserweight title at York Hall in Bethnal Green, Londonon the 21st October .

Following a training session, with his co-trainer Barry Smith at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, Williams spoke briefly about the upcoming British title fight. “It’s a good move, it’s something I’ve wanted for a long time," said Williams.

"Every British boxer wants the British title and that’s what I want to do.
I’ve got the shot now and I want to bring the belt back to South London.

"I’ve had a couple of really good stoppage wins lately, thanks to Johnny
Eames and Barry Smith, they’ve been training me well. We study the
opponents thoroughly, then put the game plan together to shut them down in
the ring to get another good win for myself and the TKO gym.


Williams added: I think it could be a messy fight, Rob’s an awkward southpaw, but I’m still going to bring it to him. A fight’s a fight and I like to fight, so it’s ding ding and put it on him.

"It’s absolutely brilliant, can’t wait, team solid all the way every day,
yeah.”
