RISING Cleary’s star Lewis Williams got the chance to spar with world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua prior to the European under-22 Championships in Romania.

Williams sparred a dozen rounds with Joshua who takes on New Zealand’s Joseph Parker on Saturday for a unification fight.

Joshua then took to Snapchat where he claimed Williams was a ‘future champion’.

Head coach Edwin Cleary said: “The chance to spar rounds and be around Joshua will be priceless and a major boost for Lewis.

“Lewis is maturing and developing with each week and the experience he’s gaining is priceless.”

Meanwhile, Danny Quatermaine flew into the next round of the Elite ABA Championship on Sunday, showing he’s going to take some stopping at 64kg.

Quatermaine boxed Rasool from Merridale ABC and from the off he was too strong.

Rasool was warned for constant holding and had two points taken off before a standing count in the second secured Quatermaine a unanimous victory.

Sean Greenfield looked rusty against favourite Carl Waldron in his first bout back for a year.

Waldron, the much taller boxer, kept Greenfield off with his long jab.

Greenfield’s best round was the third as he started to shake the rust off but his opponent was awarded the contest.
