Sheeraz, 24, delivered on a promise to make a statement by stopping Williams, a former world title challenger. “I had a lot of doubters going into this fight [who] thought I wasn’t able to keep up with this caliber of fighter,” Sheeraz said.

Williams Had Cut A Confident Figure All Through

Williams had cut a confident figure all through fight week, suggesting Sheeraz’s team had made a serious mistake in accepting the bout, but that bravado was quickly wiped out.

Sheeraz’s stiff jab and power shots were too much for the Welshman, who went down just after the first minute and crashed to the floor again moments later from a brilliant counter uppercut.

Promoter Frank Warren celebrated with Sheeraz at ringside as one of his brightest young stars produced a career-best performance against his most dangerous opponent to date. Warren suggested fellow Englishman Chris Eubank Jr as Sheeraz’s next opponent, heaping praise on his fighter.

“He reminds me of Tommy Hearns in a big way with that jab. He takes you out with it. The power he has with it is unbelievable,” Warren said. “I genuinely believe a star is born and I genuinely believe he will win a world title and hold that title for as long as he likes.”
