Derek Williams

The popular former Commonwealth and European Heavyweight boxing champion, is the Managing Director of the boxing management and promotions side of the company.

His experience and knowledge of boxing is recognised throughout the sport of boxing and he has been a regular invited guest for the big fight nights on Sky Sports Television, especially as an expert analyst for the heavyweights.

In 2004 at Crystal Palace National Stadium, he staged his first boxing promotion ‘Building A Storm’ under the banner Williams World Productions, the main event was an explosive encounter between WBF Super-Featherweight Champion Carl Johanneson from Leeds and Leva Kirakosyan the former Russian Super –Featherweight Champion.

Williams is able to easily identify talent and has promoted several of the leading fighters in England from the early stages of their career including Champion boxers: Darren Barker, Ajose Olusegun, Ashley Theophane, Anthony Small, Daniel Cadman and many others.

He promoted ‘Rep Ya Endz’ which promoted boxers from various areas, to show the youth among the supporters that doing something positive was a way forward rather than battling for area codes. Don Kings former World Cruiserweight Champion Kelvin ‘Concrete’ Davis also featured on the promotion.

Derek is keen to see  heavyweights AJ Carter and Dominique Akinladem both have promising careers mapped out and he is confident that they will cause ripples in the heavyweight scene.
