Danny Williams has stepped through the ropes for the final time after 83 career professional fights since his career began in 1995.
The ‘Brixton Bomber’ is a two-time British Champion, two-time Commonwealth champion, European and WBC World title challenger. He fought against many big names in boxing including legends Mike Tyson and Vitali Klitschko. As an amateur, he won bronze medals at the 1993 European Championships and 1994 Commonwealth Games.
He continued his boxing career for 25 years not for the spotlight or fame, or for the roar of an adoring crowd. He persisted because he selflessly put his two daughters and their education in front of himself and, at times, his safety.
Danny Williams is a good man, a family man, and he is humbled by the fact people want to help. Starting this campaign has led me to find many others who share the goal of helping the Williams family. Many have been instrumental in getting this endeavor off the ground. I would like to especially thank writer Pete Carvill, boxer and doctor, Arthif Daniel, and International Boxing Hall of Famer inductee and President of DiBella Entertainment, Lou DiBella.
Danny’s close friend, Arthif, shared with me that Danny is a man of pride, integrity and dignity and didn't wish to ask for this but he is greatly humbled and appreciative of the outpouring of support from the boxing community.
This is an initiative started by people close to Danny that wish to ensure his health and well-being. We hope to raise enough for his two precious daughters so that he no longer risks his own health and life by stepping in the ring.
Danny has been brave enough for several lifetimes. He didn’t ask directly for help. If his body would allow, he would step through the ropes another 83 times before reaching out. We are humbly reaching out on his behalf and with his support because he is a man worth fighting for. He is a man that deserves to see his beautiful girls receive a great education. Any donation or share on social media goes a very long way. Thank you all.
