Darryll Williams ‘officially unretired’, ready for comeback

WBN 24/01/2018

Former English super-middleweight champion Darryll Williams will be back in action later this year after officially coming out of retirement.

The 27 year-old met with Mickey Helliett and Frank Warren on Wednesday morning, two months after announcing his shock decision to walk away from the sport.

Back on November 18, a disillusioned Williams stated: “Today I announce my retirement from boxing I came into boxing at 18 years old I was a street fighter and just wanted to take peoples head off I am now 27 years old and have had 25 fights in my whole career.

“What I have achieved is amazing in this space of time but due to being involved with wrong people injury’s and other issues my career has always been put on hold or stop and start.

“I have always had a drive and ambition to fight but I am tired and sick of the politics involved in this sport. To be honest, it is not sport, it’s a business and me and many others get abused and taken for a ride.

“I have made many sacrifices to reach a goal in the ring and I have nothing left to give this sport.

“A word of advice to anyone who is starting boxing or wants to do it; Do not allow yourself to have any distractions and make sure your team has your best interest at heart.”

Williams was speaking on the back of seeing big fights fall by the wayside due to opponents pulling out but is now ready to return to the 168 pound domestic scene.

Undefeated in 16 fights, ‘Ferocious’ is one of the UK standouts in his respective division and makes a welcome return to a weight class brimming with talent.
