Earlier today Francis and George Warren officially announced that British Cruiserweight Champion Leon ‘Solid’ Williams will defend his newly acquired title, against Southern Area champion Tony ‘Conqueror’ Conquest, at York Hall in London on Friday 13th January 2012, and broadcast live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky 456 & Virgin 546).
Williams, who relieved Rob Norton of the coveted Lonsdale belt back in October, spoke briefly on the upcoming showdown with his long time friend Tony Conquest,
“I’m excited, I’m already back in training preparing to crush him.
It’s going to be a nightmare for him, he wont be conquering me anyway, I’ll be conquering him.
Friendships done now it’s official, we’re not friends, he’s my enemy right now and I’m gonna crush him on the 13th January.
I’ve got a big following, which is good. I thank them all, because it is because of them that I am in the position I am now.
I’m gonna put on a great show for them and crush Tony and then we’ll celebrate all day, every day…yeaaahh.”
The Warren brothers have put together a top class support card for Williams-Conquest, headed by a heavyweight clash between Larry ‘The War Machine’ Olabamiwo and former Commonwealth Champion Sam Sexton.
Also on the card are ‘Super’ Bradley Skeete, Williams’ TRAD TKO Gym mate ‘Saint’ George Jupp, John Wayne Hibbert, Daryl Williams, Charlie Hit and John Dignam, all against yet to be named opponents.
