With a combined age of 84 years old it's hard to really take this bout seriously. 10 years ago this would have been a good contest. In fact 10 years ago Williams was the British and Commonwealth champion whilst Maskaev was a ranked contender. Just 10 years ago this could have served as a world title eliminator.
Now however this bout is just the latest joke in the Heavyweight division. Another dark chapter to the division that has helped define boxing over the year. We won't predict a winner, merely a loser. The world of boxing. The fact both men are fighting despite only being shadows of the men they once were is a genuine shame and we hope that not only the loser hangs them up, but so to does the winner.
