HEAVYWEIGHT Danny Williams ‘in best shape for years’ ahead of Saturday clash with EX-LIGHTWEIGHT

Danny Williams has whipped himself in the best shape possible as the Mike Tyson conqueror prepares for an unusual task on Saturday night.

The 45 year-old fights ex-Commonwealth lightweight champion Lee McAllister in what will be Williams’ first contest on UK soil for eight years.

Williams puts his reputation on the line in Aberdeen opposite a fighter recently campaigning at welterweight and knows he has to make the encounter look easy in order to secure bigger offers.

“This is much lower down than some of the highs I’ve had,” Williams told the Evening Express

“But it’s a fight and to get to the high places in boxing you have to have other fights and this is like a stepping stone for bigger fights.

“I’ve got a few fights, big fights, lined up for me in China and Denmark after this. But obviously, if I lose in Aberdeen it’s all downhill so I’ve got to go and destroy this guy.

“I recently won (an unrecognized) title and this would be adding to my collection. I want to unify the (lower) world titles.

“I’d say I’m in the best shape I have been in for the last eight or nine years,” added the former world title challenger.

A young Dereck Chisora was the opponent when Williams graced a British ring at Upton Park in May 2010, which probably represents that last time ‘The Brixton Bomber’ spoke of where was in top condition.

Unfortunately, Williams was stopped in two rounds by Chisora and has since been operating all over Europe after failing to see his bouts take favor with the British Boxing Board of Control.
