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.”

Everybody who is a boxing fan should chip in a few dollars so we can pool a big pot of money to give to Roy Jones so he EFFING QUITS!

Hey if Roy Jones can beat this guy then maybe Holyfield and Roy Jones could fight each other. At least that is a fight where Holyfield wont be in as much danger in getting hurt as he would be in…
