Danny Williams Demands Investigation of Airich Bout

By Mark Vester

Heavyweight Danny Williams has made a complaint to British Boxing Board of Control and requested a full investigation of the controversial officiating and happenings involved with his seventh-round knockout of previously unbeaten prospect Konstantin Airich in Bilbao last weekend. Williams is scheduled to defend his British title against John McDermott at the Goresbrooke Leisure Centre, Dagenham, on July 4.

Williams was dropped three-times in the fight and lost three-points for low blow offenses that he claims never happened. He would later come back to get Airich in serious trouble in the sixth, when the bell rang prematurely, stopping the round about 90-seconds early.

Simon Block, general secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control, said they are going to review a video of the fight and take action if necessary.

"It was incredible. There were rounds ending early and I lost count of the number of points I had taken away. I knew I had absolutely no chance of winning the fight unless I stopped the guy," Williams said. "The whole situation is ridiculous. It also happened in my last fight against Oleg Platov [in December] when they knew I was going to win. They stopped the fight and got a no-decision on an injury. I've got to urge the British Board of Control to put in a complaint because things have to change.

"I had even been warned beforehand by friends not to take the fight because I couldn't win it. I thought boxing was supposed to be about how good you are, not about where you are fighting or who you are fighting for. I need to stand up on this to make sure other British fighters don't have the same problems I have had."

"But I thought boxing was supposed to be about how good you are, not about where you are fighting or who you are fighting for. I need to stand up over this to make sure other British fighters don't have the same problems I have had."

Although Airich was unbeaten, Williams said he looked poor in his fight videos, but he was very surprised with the punching power of the inexperienced prospect.

"I took the fight because Airich didn't look too good on the videos. But I couldn't believe how hard he punched. His power was up there on a level with Vitali Klitschko," Williams said. "I wasn't mentally prepared for that kind of power. But I got used to it, and everything that was going on just spurred me on to get the win."

[QUOTE=Allucard]Hold your horses Danny is still pretty limited. It just happened the other guy was allot worse.[/QUOTE] I'm not saying to comeback to challenge for anything. He is coming back to where he once was. The top of the quadruplets. You know who I'm talking about.

[QUOTE=sparked_85]LOL. Now that is what you call a win. Williams was going to stop Platov as well. Big Dan is having a bit of a comeback.[/QUOTE] Hold your horses Danny is still pretty limited. It just happened the other guy was allot worse.
