SV. Williams says:-
Johnny Williams speaking (Nat.snd.) "Well, thank you very much for such a wonderful reception. I don't think I ever realised how far the Grand is from the LMS. station before. But I can assure you I really appreciate it and feel really honoured. I am not going to pretend that it was an easy fight that I won easily. It was, a hard fight and the referee thought that I'd won. And I hope to be a good champion "Thank You".
