Parker vs. Williams Contest
British Title Nov. 3 In Glasgow
Zach Parker and Darryll Williams will contest the vacant
British Super Middleweight title on November 3 at The SSE
Hydro in Glasgow.
The undefeated prospects square off for the Lord Lonsdale
belt on the undercard of the huge World Boxing Super Series
event in Scotland featuring a mouthwatering Season II
Quarter-Final double header.
Scottish star Josh Taylor takes on the undefeated American
Ryan Martin in the tournament’s Super Lightweight bracket,
while Northern Ireland’s WBA Super World Champion Ryan
Burnett meets former four-weight World ruler Nonito Donaire
in the star-studded bantamweight division.

Parker now has the chance to realise a lifelong dream by
winning the British title, and has promised ‘fireworks’ for
the Glasgow fans.
“Fighting for the British title means a lot to me, my dad

the best belt out there other than the world titles,” said
“Williams is a good opponent he’s undefeated and he’s proved
himself at English level.
“I think it’s gonna be a good fight. He’s going to come
forward and I’m not backing down either. It should make for
fireworks in the middle of the ring.
“It feels amazing to be fighting on another World Boxing
Super Series show. They’re class to be on. The build up is
amazing and I love the way the tournament is set up with the
best fighting the best.
“I can’t wait to be fighting in Scotland. I’ve never been
there before so that will be a new experience for me. I
can’t wait to box in front of the Scottish fans and give
them a good fight and show them what I’m all about.”
Williams lived up to his ‘Ferocious’ alias in two fiercely
contested English title fights with Jahmaine Smyle last
year, and has vowed to drag Parker into a ‘dogfight’ as he
looks to capture the coveted British belt.
“Zack Parker has never been in a dogfight and that is what
this will be,” said Williams. “He better be ready!”
