Danny Williams is aiming for a second consecutive victory on August 28 when the British former world heavyweight title challenger and Mike Tyson conqueror returns.
The veteran from London, who is now 47, last fought in December when stopped 0-8 Mehmed Crnalic in one round.
‘The Brixton Bomber’ is now looking to build on winning six from his last eight contests.
With Mike Tyson already on his way back, a rematch between the pair has potentially opened up for later in the year.
Back in May, Williams exclusively told WBN he wanted a second bite at Tyson after halting the legend in four rounds sixteen years ago.
“I’m very interested in facing Mike Tyson again,” Williams exclusively told World Boxing News.
“I can confirm that a few of my agents have put my name up to fight ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson. We are still awaiting an answer but it’s definitely a fight I want.”
Fast forward three months and Williams is set to battle Joel Djeko in Belgium. A triumph for Williams would open several doors with Tyson on the comeback trail.
The full card for Djeko vs Williams will be available on Facebook for just $5 as part of a big international card in the late summer.
