Danny Williams insists he will make Lee McAllister regret fighting him.
The Brixton Bomber faces McAllister at the Beach Ballroom on July 28 with the World Boxing Union (WBU) heavyweight belt on the line.
Williams is only focused on victory in the Granite City and says his aim is to make the Aberdeen Assassin regret taking him on.
The 45-year-old said: “There will be no losing, it’s going to be all winning.
“I’m going to beat him and knock him out.
“I don’t think Lee quite knows what he has let himself in for.
“I’m telling you from the first round he will regret what he has done, he will regret taking this fight big time.
“That’s my message to Lee and his fans – you will regret it, no doubt.”
During an illustrious career Williams has been in the ring with some of the heavyweight greats.
He beat Mike Tyson in 2004 and later that year fought Ukrainian Vitali Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight title – losing in eight rounds.
Williams says his latest bout with McAllister is some way from the highs he has experienced earlier in his career, which include being Commonwealth and British heavyweight champion.
However, the Englishman has plenty of motivation for the fight – namely, he wants to put McAllister, who he feels has been disrespectful in stepping up from super-welterweight to challenge at heavyweight, in his place.
Williams added: “The motivation is money firstly and also it is a former lightweight I’m fighting.
“The cheek of it that a former lightweight is challenging a heavyweight, that’s massive disrespect and cheeky so I’m going to put him in his place for that.
“This is much lower down than some of the highs I’ve had.
“But it’s a fight and to get to the high places in boxing you have to have other fights and this is like a stepping stone for bigger fights.
“I’ve got a few fights, big fights, lined up for me in China and Denmark after this. But obviously if I lose in Aberdeen it’s all downhill so I’ve got to go and destroy this guy.
“I recently won the WBF (World Boxing Foundation) title and this would be adding to my collection.
“I want to unify the junior world titles.”
Williams says his preparations have been going well and thinks he is in great shape ahead of this month’s bout.
He added: “I’d say I’m in the best shape I have been in for the last eight or nine years.
“I feel really good and I’m ready to rumble in this fight.
“I’m not giving Lee McAllister credit for that because I had a fight scheduled for a few weeks ago which was cancelled.
“So I was training for that and I was in shape. Lee will be punished for that.”
McAllister: This would be my biggest victory
Lee McAllister says beating Danny Williams would be the greatest victory of his career.
The Aberdeen Assassin has stepped up from super-welterweight to heavyweight to face Williams.
The pair meet at the Granite City’s Beach Ballroom on July 28 for the WBU heavyweight belt.
McAllister says victory over the Brixton Bomber would be his career highlight.
The 35-year-old said: “I think this is the biggest opponent and it would be
the biggest victory of my career.
“Beating somebody like Danny is unthinkable.
“He is a clever professional fighter and I’m sure he will have done the right things in the gym.
“He’ll be coming to rip my head off but that’s boxing – we’re not there to tickle each other.
“The public just like everyone else thinks I’m mad, but I’m out to prove a point.
“I want to show that anything can be achieved.
“It doesn’t matter where you are from and your background, if you’ve got your mind set on something then you can achieve it, and that’s what it’s all about.”
Williams, a former Commonwealth heavyweight champion who has beaten Mike Tyson, wants to make McAllister regret taking the fight.
But McAllister says he is in good shape and will have no regrets regardless of the result.
He added: “The preparation is going well and I feel good.
“I don’t regret anything. it’s life, it’s boxing. One punch can change a fight and if he thinks he can come and knock me out that’s up to him.
“Win, lose or draw I’ll have no regrets because I know what I’m up against.
“He’s a legend. I’ve got no regrets now and I’ll have no regrets afterwards.”
