Welliver-Williams update

By David Finger

World ranked heavyweight contender Chauncy Welliver (53-5-5, 20 KOs) continues his quest for a world title fight in 2012 when he takes on the always ready Sherman “Tank” Williams (34-11-2, 19 KOs) in Macao, China tomorrow. Welliver, who is ranked #5 by the WBC and #8 by the WBO will be defending his WBO Asia Pacific heavyweight title as well as his WBO China Zone Heavyweight title. Welliver continues to remain the most active heavyweight contender in the world, a stark contrast to Williams, who has had only one fight since 2009, a controversial no-contest against former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield in January of last year. However, Williams impressed boxing insiders with his gritty performance against Holyfield (all three judges had Williams ahead after three rounds when the fight was ruled a no-contest), and with his weight down to 242 for this fight (from 258 against Holyfield), many insiders feel that Williams has the potential to give the champion a serious test. “He wants my titles,” Welliver posted on his Facebook page, “but hard work won’t let that happen.” Welliver weighed in today at 238 pounds.
