Following his four round crushing of Mike Tyson, all of British boxing is hoping Danny Williams can capture lightning in a bottle twice in two fights by defeating World Heavyweight Champion Vitali Klitschko when they meet in the US in three months' time.

Williams, now known as 'the Legend Killer', has been rewarded for his Tyson heroics with a shot at the World Boxing Council and linear championship against the imposing 6ft 8inch Klitschko. It is another big ask of the family man from Brixton, but after Williams's performance against Iron Mike, there is no reason Great Britain can't regain the Richest Prize in Sport just 10 months after the retirement of Lennox Lewis.

Already, the British scene is buzzing with talk of Danny's title shot. At ringside at Wembley for the cracking Thompson v Haye war, I heard convincing opinions as to why the Briton will win via knockout (Klitschko has no stamina, Danny throws too many punches, Klitschko will cut) and also why this will be another British sporting heartbreaker (Williams too short to get inside, Klitschko has better chin in battle of bangers).
