Williams Wins NBA World title

LAS VEGAS – Caribbean heavyweight champion Sherman “The Caribbean Tank” Williams (29-10-2, 16 KOs) added the NBA World title belt to his display case with a sensational third-round TKO of veteran “Dangerous” David Washington (15-9, 9 KOs) last Friday night at the new Ybor City Multi Fight Complex in Tampa, Florida.

Williams put Washington, also known as David N’ail, to sleep with a picture perfect right hook that landed right on the button. Referee Tommy Kimmons immediately halted the match at 1:51 of the third round. “I knew it as soon as it connected,” Williams talked about his knockout punch of the late replacement. “I got that feeling as soon as I hit him on the chin. He was in retreat, trying to get away from me, when I caught him with a right hook. I knew I’d get him after dropping him earlier with a body shot.

“I didn’t know he was a southpaw until I stepped in the ring, so it was a moral victory, making adjustments and executing. I felt great. My conditioning was really good. I had to come up with a new game plan in the ring, but I was confident in my shape and conditioning.”

Williams, now rated No. 38 by the World Boxing Council, plans on staying busy and positioning himself for a major world title shot. “The main thing is activity,” Sherman added. “I’m looking to stay busy get all of the rust off and stepping it up a little. I want to get in the heavyweight mix. People are complaining that there are no exciting world heavyweight champions. I will continue to work hard and let my promoter, Silverhawk Boxing, get me in position for a world title fight. Styles make fights and I’m confident in my ability to beat one of the champions in the next 12 months. I will upset one of these guys.”

Williams is promoted by Silverhawk Boxing, managed by Rider Boxing, and trained by Buddy McGirt. For more information about Williams or Silverhawk Boxing go to www.silverhawkboxing.com.
