Gammer keeps Williams in sights

British heavyweight champion Scott Gammer is already looking beyond Friday's first defence of his belt.

The undefeated Pembroke man, 29, faces Micky Steeds at the Afan Lido, Port Talbot on 13 October.

The Isle of Dogs' Steeds, 23, was a replacement for Danny Williams, and Gammer is keen to reorganise that bout.

"I'm not taking Micky lightly, but Williams is still the mandatory challenger and I hope that bout can be made afterwards," Gammer told the BBC.

"Williams, Matt Skelton and Audley Harrison are the big names on the British heavyweight scene, but I don't think they're better than Micky or myself.

"I need to get in with those guys to make a name for myself."

Gammer's words were backed up by Southern Area champion Steeds.

I was a boy the last time I fought Scott - I've gained a lot of experience since and he'll find that I'm a different fighter

"Scott's like me, he wants to get in with the biggest and best names out there," the Londoner told BBC Sport Wales.

"There are too few fighters like that."

Steeds' only setback in nine fights was a six-round points defeat to Gammer in Brighton 18 months ago.

But since then he has claimed four victories, including points wins over Julius Francis and Garry Delaney.

"Scott's unbeaten and that says it all - he's a good fighter," said Steeds.

"But I was a boy the last time I fought him. I've gained a lot of experience since and he'll find that I'm a different fighter."

Gammer, who claimed the vacant crown when he halted Mark Krence at the Carmarthen Showground in June, says their last encounter will count for little.

"Micky will change things this time, he's got fast hands and he's a dangerous counter puncher," said the Welshman.

Gammer has 16 wins (9 KOs) and one draw to his name since turning professional in 2002.
