The win means Parker retains his PABA and WBO Oriental heavyweight titles and takes his record to 11 victories from 11 fights.

Straight after the fight the 42-year-old fighter from the Bahamas called for a rematch as he felt the decision was ridiculous.

Parker, who dominated the 10-round bout, says he was trying to knock Williams to the canvas.

"He's an experienced fighter with a hard chin.... those punches usually knock people out," he said.

The 22-year-old Parker and his team say they'd like a world title fight within the next two years.
