DaVarryl Jerome Williamson is an American boxer originally from Washington, D.C., but later a resident of Aurora, Colorado. He has a current professional record of 26-6, with 22 knockouts.

Background[edit]

Williamson was raised in poverty in inner city Washington D.C.. He was born to a mother addicted to drugs and a criminal father. He spent his youth moving between foster homes and between schools until his father chose to resume contact at the age of 11.

Professional career[edit]

Williamson had a title shot against IBF Heavyweight champion Chris Byrd in 2005. Byrd outpointed Williamson by unanimous decision. Following the fight it was revealed Williamson had postponed elbow surgery.

Williamson returned with a second round knockout of Cerrone Fox on 9/18/08 at the Centro de Convenciones Figali in Panama City, Panama.

Williamson stopped Carl Davis in August 2009 in St. Louis, Missouri. Davis was game, but Williamson sent him to the mat with a sweeping left hook in the fourth round. Davis took a knee early in the fifth following another right hand, before being floored with a picture-perfect right that caused the referee to halt the bout at 2:52 of the fifth round.

Williamson fought Ray Austin on October 31, 2009. In what was billed as a WBC Title Eliminator bout, Williamson was defeated by fourth round technical knockout after being sent to the canvas by Austin. Williamson got up, but the referee stopped it.
