Robinson stopped by Williams
Redditch's Andrew ‘D’Animal’ Robinson has lost his British middleweight title challenge against World title contender Liam Williams Live on BT sports (10,10,20). Robinson (36) weighed in 11 Stone 5 for this 12 round fight with Williams weighing in 11 stone 6.
Williams started brightly and got his jab working well, Robinson was looking good moving well and getting his jab off. Williams moved in with a one, two which caused a nasty clash of heads with both fighters sustaining cuts with Robinson coming out worst off. Williams then moved up a few gears and smashed in shots to Robinson’s head and body dropping D’Animal with a cracking body shot. The ref counted Robinson out as Robinson got to his feet as the count got to 10.
Andrew Robinson was always going to be up against it against a talent like Liam Williams. Williams showed his world-class abilities after the clash of head with a great finish putting Robinson down in the first round. Robinson never really got started and if it wasn’t for the nasty cut sustained in the clash of heads I’m sure Robinson would have grown into the fight and asked Williams some questions. Robinson at the age of 36 may not get the chance again to contend for the British title again but he has had a great career and I’m sure D’Animal will sit down with his team and discuss what to do next.
