Niagara Falls NY — Yet another Six Nations boxer is beginning to turn heads. Lola Williams, daughter of Six Nations’ amateur boxer Skyler Williams won an unanimous decision over and bigger opponent who outweighed Williams by 10 lbs. in Niagara Falls New York. But Williams’ great attitude and fast gloves earned her a unanimous decision.
“Lola is amazing,” seemed her coach Bill Williams (no relations). “She is a work n progress, but I can tell that she can be one of Canada’s top up-and-coming female fighters.”
Although she has only been with the Brant Boxing Club for about two years, by the way she trains and works out, Williams believe she’s got the right stuff, so to speak.
“She is going to be a force to be reckoned with,” says Williams.
Last week, Lola showed the “stuff” against a bigger and more experienced fighter in Niagara Falls. Williams caught her opponent with a sharp blow in the second round that caused the referee to give her a standing eight count to regroup. It didn’t help as Williams came on strong to take the decision for her first amateur win of many, if William’s predictions are right.
Her father Skyler is very excited about the win. Although he was not on the card that night, Skyler Williams is riding the wave of six wins in a row in the ring. He will next be competing in the Golden Gloves tournament in Niagara Falls, which runs between Nov. 29th and December 3rd.
