NABF lightweight champ survives knockdown

Staff report

MASHANTUCKET, CONN.

Late in the first round of his NABF lightweight championship fight against Henry Lundy, Dannie Williams connected with a left hook to the temple that dropped his opponent to one knee.

Williams, though, was unable to find another punch like that the rest of the night, suffering a loss by unanimous decision in the main event of ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights at Foxwoods Casino.

Williams, now 21-2 overall with 17 wins by knockout, hurt Lundy with less than a minute remaining in the opening round, which resulted in a standing-8 count.

Until then, neither fighter landed many punches. Williams had a big roundhouse that missed about midway through the round that drew gasps from the crowd.

Lundy had the upper hand in the second round, cornering Williams with a combination with about 40 seconds remaining.

The third round was easily the best of the early rounds. Both fighters got in good punches. Williams hurt Lundy more, but Lundy countered with some rights that stunned Williams.

The fourth round action slowed again. Williams was the aggressor early in the round but Lundy had more punches land.

But as the fight progressed, Lundy controlled the action with his jab as he switched from lefty to righty and back again.

In the fifth round Lundy connected consistently with his jab and he hurt Williams in the sixth with a right-hand jab and, later, a combination.

In the eighth round Lundy again connected consistently.

The judges scored the bout 98-91, 97-92, 97-92.

He looked terrible and totally out classed. Just another example of what a terrible trainer loew is. No defense, no jab, no combinations get a real trainer while you can!

Out-classed for sure, but i wouldn't balme jack lowe. I watched dannie williams fight at the byzantine center 13 months ago. Being featured in a main event title bout on national tv was a major step up for williams. His gutsy performance against a quality, savvy opponent should have made youngstown proud to call him one of our own, albeit as an adopted son.

Williams needed to use his jab more and forget about that knockdown in the first round. He was catching more punches( jabs) to the head than he should if he had a corner that wasn't blind and could talk to him.He needed to take the fight to the champ to take away his belt , move his head more with his hand and foot speed the champ would've been getting up from the canvas at least two more times! The location youngstown was a good move too bad he didn't get trainers to work/teach him what could've been a step - up to the next level in his pro career.

All loew did was run his mouth about Lundy. Instead he should think about teaching his fighters how to jab, move their head, throw some combinations...basically everything....
