Courtesy Frank Maloney Promotions, here's the full fight video for the December 3 British junior welterweight title eliminator between Karl Place and Steve Williams.
Since news is a bit slow today, we'll be getting some more fights up from YouTube, including the Prince Arron vs Brian Rose fight shortly, and the rest of the Cotto vs Margarito undercard from Top Rank. It's wonderful when promoters put these fights up, so I figured we'd help get the play counts up in appreciation.
Williams (12-1, 5 KO) is now the top contender for Ashley Theophane's British title, which was retained on Saturday in a hard-fought bout against late replacement opponent Ben Murphy. It's obviously a setback for Place (15-1, 8 KO), the favored fighter going into this one, and he complained that the hook was quick. He was throwing back and not being hit flush a ton, but was obviously unsteady and Victor Loughlin made the call.
