Zach Parker takes British title with controversial split over Darryll Williams
‘Ferocious’ Darryll Williams amazingly lost out on the vacant British super-middleweight title formerly held by Rocky Fielding.
The Frank Warren fighter, who briefly retired recently, seemingly made the most of an injury suffered by Zach Parker.
A left shoulder problem clearly hampered Parker for the duration. Williams took the majority of rounds on the WBN card until a final three-round comeback.
For the last few sessions, Parker boxed brilliantly to somehow take the verdict away from Williams along with the Lord Lonsdale Belt.
Judges carded a split decision 117-112 and 115-114 in favor of Parker. A third had it 115-113 to a deserving Williams.
Former world champions Paul Butler and Viktor Postol made the most of their appearances on the bill. Firstly, ‘The Babyfaced Assassin’ acted as the reserve for Ryan Burnett v Nonito Donaire and once again proved his class.
The experienced Yoan Boyeaux was dispatched soundly via a wide decision as Butler improved to 27-2.
Postol, who is eyeing a shot at the eventual 140-pound winner, dominated Siar Ozgul over ten for a 30th career triumph.
Super-featherweight Stephen Tiffney made it to ten victories against a solitary loss as a pro. The 30 year-old Scot out-pointed Arturo Lopez over the six-round distance.
