Pride/Strikeforce/Bellator veteran Kharitonov made his pro boxing debut last night at 40 years of age by stopping 47-year-old former top contender Danny Williams in the second round. Kharitonov dropped Williams with a left hook in round one & then finished his British opponent with an array of heavy blows that wobbled Williams forcing the referee to stop the contest. This was the latest in a series of losses for Williams who memorably knocked out Mike Tyson in four rounds back in 2004 & then challenged Vitali Klitschko for the WBC title in his next fight. Unfortunately, that was the apex of Williams' career & he soon fell on hard times going just 22-25 for the rest of his career. Suffering 15 knock out losses in the process.
