LONDON — Six Nations amateur boxer Skyler Williams of Brantford’s Bell City Boxing Club won his second bout in London at the Warrior Gym last week as a part of a fight card. Williams, a late comer to the fight game, recorded his first win in July at the Knights of Columbus in the return of the Friday Night Fights Under the Lights series.

Williams was up against a much bigger opponent in Nick James who came into the ring a hearty, but strong 176.

“He is a monster of a man,” said Williams about his opponent. “A real hard puncher.”

Williams and James came out pretty well even, according to Williams’ account of the events. “If anything, I think I had a bit of an advantage,” he says.

Williams sat back in the second round waiting to counter an expected flurry of shot that never came. “He’d just come in fire a shot or two and out again.”

But he noticed the bigger man was starting to wear down and Williams’ speed and agility started to take over.

“I knew I had to stay away from that big right ,” he says. And he did so with his footwork and quick reflexes However James did catch up to Williams a few times and backed Williams off. “Man that guy can hit,” he said after the fight.

But Williams came out the eventual with a unanimous decision to increase his young boxing record to one loss and two wins.
