Sherman Williams Says Roy Jones Jr. Interested To Fight
By Phil D. Jay
Bahamas heavyweight Sherman “The Tank” Williams believes he has enhanced his reputation after his three round no-contest with Evander Holyfield to the point where all-time great Roy Jones Jr could be a future opponent for the 38-year-old.
Williams (34-11-2, 19 KO’s), seemed to get the better of 48 year-old Holyfield in their recent bout, before a cut stopped the fight prematurely. Williams was ahead on all three scorecards by a solitary point when the bout was stopped and declared a no contest.
The former Caribbean champion is hoping to attract some big names in the coming months, if his proposed rematch with Holyfield fails to materialize and expressed his delight at the interest from Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr.
“I’m just thankful to have been able to demonstrate my ability to the point whereby there is this interest now from people like Roy Jones,” The Nassau Guardian reported Williams saying.
“I’m happy also to be able to put The Bahamas in the limelight in a positive way. My showing against Holyfield was big for me but also for The Bahamas.
“I always make sure to let people know about The Bahamas. Millions heard the connection when I was interviewed after the Holyfield fight.”
