“I’m feeling great,” Williams said from his Las Vegas based training camp. “I’ve been boxing with a Brazilian fighter, Laudelino Jose Barros, who is 25-1, with 23 knockouts. He’s fighting for a WBO title against Gregory Drzod.”
“Releford is a durable guy who will test Aaron,” said co-manager, Patrick Doljain, “He’s beaten two experienced Cuban fighters, Elieser Castillo and Ramon Garby. He has draws against Terry Smith and George Garcia and he’s went the distance with Alexander Dimitrenko and Roman Greenburg, He’s been stopped only once. Beating a guy like Releford means a lot more than knocking out a 15-0 stiff like Alfredo Escalera.”
Aaron Williams is trained by former WBA Light Heavyweight champion, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad. His conditioning coach is the highly regarded, Axel Murillo. Murillo is also the conditioning coach of WBC Light Heavyweight champion Chad Dawson.
