Philadelphia (February 8th, 2014)–This Monday night at the Cowboys Dance Hall in San Antonio, unbeaten Jr. Middleweight, Julian “J Rock” Williams (14-0-1, 8 KO’s) of Philadelphia will step back in the ring when he takes on battle tested veteran Alex Bunema (31-10-2, 17 KO’s).
The 23-year old Williams continues to improve as the competition gets better. In his bout, Williams scored a 3rd round stoppage over Orlando Lora (29-4-2) on December 7th in Brooklyn, NY.
He knows that Bunema brings in a lot of experience as he has fought some of the best fighters in former world champions Kassim Ouma, Bronco McKart, Jermain Taylor, Vince Phillips & Roman Karmazin as well as former title challengers Walter Matthysse, Andy Lee and Daniel Dawson.
Williams was very pleased with the stoppage win in his last bout as Lora has been with many other prospects such as Jermall Charlo and Keith Thurman with Julian having the most impressive result.
“I am looking to fight 6 times this year,” said Williams. “Hopefully by the end of 2014, I will be in position to fight for a world title.”
“I have basically been in camp since September. I love to train and even after the Lora win, I have not taken any days off. Its’s great to be active as this will be my 3rd fight since September and I am getting better everyday.”
Said trainer Stephen Edwards, “Camp was tough. We have had the bad weather but we were able to overcome that and get the sparring and conditioning we needed. I’m happy with his progress over the last year. This last year is the most improvement I have seen in him since the time I have been training him. I’m expecting him to really look like a fine tuned boxing machine in this fight. He has shown growth in every camp and it has transferred over to every fight.”
The fight will be televised Live on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes’
Golden BoyLive! series beginning at 10pm est / 9 pm central at the Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio, TX.
