Eastman stepped back and the same old right counter landed but this time Williams just slowly crashed to the floor, pretty repetitive fight with Eastman doing enough to pick up rounds, but solid fighting throughout. I was wondering when he would go down he took alot of good punches in there.
All in all good display from Howard and im sure he'll get a European shot possibly another world title shot. Williams has well and trully blown it now. He started well in the opening rounds but Eastman was too experienced and it seemed like another day at the office, Williams was just too tired and out-boxed at the end.
From what i've been told Eastman will be dropping his British belt to go for the world title shot, so Howard will definetly be up for that.
Looking at some of Eastman's recent performances I thought that his interest in the sport was on the wane. He trained himself for the Miranda fight ( a fight he should have won!!), and seemed to turn off mentally in the Abraham fight.

Against Williams though he showed his class and seemed to be even holding back at times against his friend. The ko punch was superbly timed.
