He weighed in at 228 when he fougth Gammer. He hadnt been that light since he turned pro.

I still think that was a very very fishy weight...I personally don't believe it.

It would be like David Tua suddenly coming in at 200 for his next fight, then 3 months later being up round 240 again. I think it was bogus. Looking at the pictures of Williams vs Gammer, Danny didn't look a million miles off what he did for the McDermott fight, at a guess I reckon he was in the very late 250s at best.

Having looked at the numbers pre and post the Gammer fight I tend to agree. Williams supposedly dropped 40 pounds in the 3 months after the Fraudley fight, and then regained the weight between the Gammer and Platov fights...as you say, fishy.

No not the new domestic merry go round. The first fight was a stinker and this will be worse. Why can't Spencer Fearon talk some sense into DW.

Does the winner get to fight Skelton ?
