Troy Williamson eyeing Warrington v Frampton bill with weekend win

RINGSIDE 20/11/2018

Unbeaten middleweight Troy Williamson is looking to tee up a glamourous outing on the Josh Warrington vs. Carl Frampton undercard by winning in style this weekend.

‘The Trojan’ (7-0-1-KO5) fights at Dunston’s Lancastrian Suite on Saturday night before heading to the bright lights of the Manchester Arena on December 22 and knows two clinical performances are required to ensure a huge 2019.

Williamson said: “My focus is on the Dunston show first and foremost and I’ll bring to both shows what I always bring – excitement and a good fight for the fans.

“I’m obviously very excited to be on such a massive card as Warrington vs. Frampton. I’ve been pushing and pushing for it because it’s such a big stage to be on.

“It’s a while since I was active so it’s great to have these two opportunities to get the ball rolling again before the year is out.

“I don’t think I’m very far away from titles in terms of my talent and the performances I’ve turned in. Ideally, I’ll get a couple more eight-rounders in and then maybe one 10-rounder before pushing for titles.

“All I’m lacking at this stage of my career is experience and that will soon be under my belt.”
