Baker: Williams should retire

Carl “The Fridge” Baker (9-4, 6 KOs), who was only selected for Prizefighter Heavyweights III after the British Boxing Board of Control refused permission for another fighter to fight. The 287 lb Baker, who returned after a three year layoff in May, made the most of the opportunity, knocking down British heavyweight champion Danny Williams twice en route to a startling upset. Williams is likely to be stripped of his British title later this month and Baker now wants a crack at the Lonsdale belt. “As I’ve just beaten the British Champion, if that title becomes vacant I would love to fight for it,” stated Baker. “If not, I will just continue doing what I do and a lot of people will be thinking ‘let’s beat the kid that beat Danny’. Beating Danny will do wonders for my career.” As for the 38-year-old Williams, Baker stated “I think he should hang up his gloves. Danny said before the event he would retire if he didn’t win and I hope he does.”
