Default Where does Danny Williams rank among best British heavies of all time?

Seriously now. Top 20? 30? 40? I'm not sure. Let's have a look at his accomplishments.

2 time BBBofC British champion
2 time Commonwealth (British Empire) champion
1 time WBO Inter-Continental champion
1 time WBU International champion

8 Commonwealth (British Empire) title defenses
5 BBBofC British title defenses

1 time WBC title challenger
1 time RING Magazine title challenger
1 time EBU (European) title challenger
1 time IBF Inter-Continental title challenger

Derailed the careers of Mike Tyson and Audley Harrison. Vitali Klitschko has never been the same since he stepped in the ring with him. Infact, back in the day, Vitali vacated the WBO Inter-Continental title rather that fight Danny.

Your thoughts?

Danny Williams retired Vitali. Its common knowledge, Vitali may have won the fight but the force of Dannys punches ripped a hole in the space-time continuum and caused Vitali to feel the true force of Dannys punches for a whole week after the fight.

Vitali decided there and then that he knew he had to retire and duck a rematch with Danny Williams rather than recieve another sustained beating.

You're not sure if he's joking. So you actually think that he thinks that Danny Williams can punch holes in the space time continuum. Okaaay.......

Some people don't realise the power of the Williams machine.
