Doug Williams bids to complete a hat-trick of top wrestling titles at next week’s big half-term grappling spectacular at the Worthing Assembly Hall.

Williams, arguably the No. 1 British wrestler of the modern era and idol of the Worthing fans, clashes with the controversial “Polish Eagle” Wolf Alexander in the top of the bill bout on the show on Monday, October 28.

The rematch between Williams and Alexander, made by public demand following their heated battle on the last Worthing show, has been signed for the Premier Wrestling Federation International Championship, and if Williams wins it will be the third time he has left the Assembly Hall ring clutching a PWF belt.

The record-breaking six-times Wrestler of the Year was a former heavyweight and mid-heavyweight title-holder before quitting British rings for the States, where he enjoyed a spell as TNA champion.

Now Williams is back and determined to clip the wings of “The Polish Eagle,” who has exploded on to the British scene in his absence, and claim the title held previously by the now America-based Joel Redman.

He knows Alexander will be a difficult man to beat, however, after their first match ended in a double knockout when both men crashed over the top rope and were counted out.

On that occasion, both wrestlers claimed they should have been given the verdict, Alexander because he was the first man back into the ring on the count of ten, while Williams insisted he would have beaten the count but for his opponent dragging him back from the ring apron.

The big Monday night spectacular, the last Assembly Hall action before Christmas, will also include the return of one of grappling’s most exciting stars, “Wonder Kid” Jonny Storm, and the final tag team appearance of super-heavyweights Flash Barker and Kris Kay.

The action starts at 7.45pm.
