MIKE TYSON basher Danny Wil­liams has promised to re­tire af­ter be­ing ham­mered in two rounds by Swede Leif Larsen in Spain last week­end.

Wil­liams, 38, was stopped af­ter be­ing floored three times by the former NFL grid-iron player, who wouldn’t have got near him at his best.

Brix­ton’s former Bri­tish and Com­mon­wealth heavy­weight cham­pion fa­mously knocked out “Iron” Mike in July 2004, but was then bat­tered by Vi­tali Kl­itschko in a world ti­tle fight later that year.

Wil­liams did out­point Aud­ley Har­ri­son in De­cem­ber 2005, but has strug­gled for form since los­ing a re­match in three rounds 12 months later.

Wil­liams hangs up his gloves hav­ing won 44 fights and los­ing 11 times.
