Yep, that was prime/peak Audley that night vs a fat, overweight, unprepared Williams

oh, its the American penchant for writing things backwards!
Yes, that's how it's expressed in the US (i.e. December 8th in the US vs 8th of December in UK).

The slash method of date nomenclature came after US independence, so it would make sense that the US and UK might do it differently.

You don't speak on my behalf. Danny Williams has got more balls than any of the so called "top" heavyweghts out there today, and if you've ever seen his fights you would know that for yourself.

He is a talented B-level fighter, but he doesn't always prepare properly (if at all), and seems to lose it mentally every now and again. He has a lot of raw talent, and a lot of heart, and looks really impressive in some fights, and awful in others. If he could hook up with a decent trainer and discipline himself, he could be a top 10 fighter, and possibly hold a world title.

I'm definitely interested in this fight, if he can lay off the cakes and fight to his actual potential.

This is a nice little post but Danny is mid 30s now. I know the HW's can be older but Williams has taken his fair share of big punches during his career. I don't think he can even make it back to European champion level anymore to be honest. Danny just needs to retire. The time has come and gone when he could have made a good impact.

If you are only purely after guys' balls, you should watch porn.

I had to look up his age (he's 34, I thought he was 32) and you're probably right, and it's frustrating having seen him waste a lot of his potential, although I still respect what he HAS achieved when he's been motivated. I'll just think of him embarrassing Audley to cheer myself up

This is a great oportunity for redemption for Danny, one last push to make something worthy in his career and maybe catch a belt somewhere.

Platov will have the chance to put his name at the mix, with a win. Anyway, he is still 24, so a loss will not hurt him so much as he will have a lot of time to recover.

This should be a good bout.
