Tyson Quotes

"He throws flurries and punches like a welterweight. Very seldom do you see heavyweights throw combinations of 5, 6 punches. But Mike Tyson does it"

Danny Williams News: Williams wants Tyson rematch

Posted on Sunday, August 01, 2004 @ 09:27:27 UTC by tysonian

Danny Williams will put his world title dreams on hold to seek a lucrative rematch with Mike Tyson.

The Brixton 31-year-old gatecrashed the world heavyweight elite by defeating former world champion Tyson in four rounds in Louisville on Friday night.

He is desperate to fulfil a lifelong ambition and claim a version of the crown once held by his vanquished opponent. But first Williams will pursue the arguably more lucrative option of persuading Tyson back into the ring.

Williams said: "I think people may doubt my victory so I would like to give Mike another beating.

"I'd like to fight him one more time to show it wasn't a fluke and I can still perform a lot better than this.

"I'd love for the fight to be in London and it would be nice to give the British fans something by beating him up even worse next time."

Williams expects to be left 175,000 US dollars light of his purse for Friday's fight after a last-minute dispute with the local promoter.

He was placated with a paper bag full of 80,000 US dollars in cash straight from the box office and was urged by his promoter Frank Warren to forget the shortfall to chase the win which would secure his financial future.

Warren said: "I said to Danny, you aren't going to get any more money out of this but this is a fight you can win.

"Now Danny is in the driving seat. It is all about securing the right financial future for him and his family. There is no rematch clause with Tyson but we will take it if the money is right."
