“I was a little anxious after the first knockdown,” said Williams. “I heard Eddie (trainer, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad) tell me to relax and keep him at the end of my jab. I saw the opening for the hook and let it go.”
Team Williams is anticipating a return to the ring in November on a major card. “Our promoter, Jimmy Burchfield (Classic Entertainment & Sports) is working on something big,” said Williams co-manager, Patrick Doljanin.”
“Hopefully, it works-out and we can look at meeting another young, undefeated Cruiserweight next. Alfredo Escalera couldn’t man-up in July, refusing to fight Aaron and I expect him to keep running. Guys like Shawn Hawk or Derrick Brown are a couple of fighters we’re looking at,” concluded Doljanin.
Team Williams would like to thank Ronald Johnson and American Dream Promotions. Johnson (10-1, 3 KO’s) picked-up the WBF Light Heavyweight strap with a unanimous decision over William Gill in the main event. The night’s action will be rebroadcast by Fox Sports Cleveland
