Sexton-Williams, Brook-Jennings on February 13 in London

A big British card will come around on February 13, as Frank Warren has set up a double main event in London with an undercard featuring many of the top UK prospects.

In one feature, heavyweights Sam Sexton and Danny Williams will clash. Sexton (13-1, 6 KO) showed real improvement in his second battle with Martin Rogan in November, and the Commonwealth champ will look to add Williams' British title to his collection. Williams (41-8, 31 KO) was shocked in the first round of the Prizefighter 8 tournament in October, losing to Carl Baker. And it wasn't just that it was a three-round format and thus flukes are easy; Williams was down twice in the first round.

I think in his prime, Williams is too good for Sexton, but at 36 and clearly faded, the young, strong, improving Sexton seems at first glance to be too big a challenge. But then again, you never know with Williams. He's looked absolutely done before, too, and here he is.

Hot Brit welterweight prospect Kell Brook (20-0, 13 KO) will meet Michael Jennings (36-2, 17 KO) in the other main event, a fight that was delayed from October 30, when Brook fell ill just before the fight. Jennings wound up fighting that night anyway, beating journeyman Laszlo Komjathi via eight-round shutout.

Also on the card will be prospects Frankie Gavin, Billy Joe Saunders and James DeGale, among others. Heavyweight Derek Chisora will also be on the bill.
