Last night's homecoming for Bahamian native Sherman "The Caribbean Tank" Williams may not have lasted very long but it certainly was successful as Williams registered his eighth consecutive victory via a first-round knockout of Wade Lewis in a scheduled 10-round bout in Nassau.
Williams (33-10-2, 19 KOs), now fighting out of Vero Beach (FL), is the reigning NBA, WBF Intercontinental and Caribbean Boxing Federation heavyweight champion.
"Sherman's ready to move up to the next level in the heavyweight division," Williams' manager Jim Rider said. "We're looking for a major step up in competition for his next fight."
