Despite the revelation that Mike Tyson was under the influence of recreational drugs during their fight, it hasn’t deterred Danny Williams from accepting numerous bouts across Europe since losing his UK license in 2011. Interestingly, each of these fights somehow relates to Tyson in some way.

Even though nearly two decades have passed, the offers to fight keep pouring in for Williams, even as he approaches the age of 50. Remarkably, he competed professionally twice in 2022.

Unexpectedly, Williams has now decided to return to his home country for a white-collar boxing match, granting him the opportunity to compete in the United Kingdom once again.

DKM Plush announced this event on New Year’s Day, but many boxing enthusiasts expressed their concerns about Williams venturing into another form of combat.
