Mac Williams

Mac Williams was a Cardiff boxing manager who – from humble beginnings in the 1960s – built probably the biggest professional stable in the UK.

None of Williams’s fighters ever won a European or world title as they tended to operate on the smaller stage. He built a big rivalry with Eddie Thomas‘s Merthyr stable of fighters, a classic clash between valley boys and city boys.

Williams also made an attempt to revive booth fighting, something he felt could reinvigorate Wales as a true hotbed of global boxing and return the glory days of the early twentieth century.

His stable of fighters went into decline in the late 1970s.
