Julian Williams Returns To Philadelphia For Sept. 30 Fight

Philadelphia, PA—Undefeated junior middleweight Julian J-Rock Williams, of Philadelphia, PA, will test himself against seasoned Eberto Medina,of Newark, NJ, in the six-round semifinal contest on Friday, Sept. 30, at the National Guard Armory in Northeast Philadelphia.  First fight is 7.30 p.m.

Headlining the eight-bout card is an eight-round welterweight contest between Ray Robinson, of Philadelphia, PA, and Manuel Guzman, of Lancaster, PA.

This will mark Williams’ second fight in his hometown and is ready to impress his fans.  He made his pro debut in Philadelphia in May of 2010 when he stopped Antonio Chaves Fernandez, of Brockton, MA, in the first round of the scheduled four-round bout.
Williams has boxed in five different states but he is looking forward to fighting at home again.  He is confident with testing himself at any level.

A pro less than two years, Williams is 7-0-1, 4 K0s, and already he has boxed four times in 2011.  He has faced every type of opponent from 72-fight journeyman Marteze Logan, of Covington, TN, to up-and-coming prospect Francisco Santana, of Santa Barbara, CA.
Medina (5-6-1, 1K0) recently fought a six-round draw with Williams’ gym-mate (Shuler’s gym) Jamaal Davis, of Philadelphia, PA, on July 15 at Bally’s Atlantic City.

Medina also faced junior middleweight prospect Glen Tapia, of Passaic, NJ, earlier this year.  He also lost by decision to The New Ray Robinson, in 2008 in the same ring.  Williams will be Medina’s seventh fight against an undefeated prospect.

Other six-round matches feature undefeated junior middleweights DeCarlo Perez (5-0, 1K0), of Atlantic City, NJ, against Grayson Blake (3-0, 1K0), of State College, PA, as well as light-heavyweights Charles Hayward (7-2, 3K0s), of Philadelphia, PA, and George Armenta (13-7, 11K0s), of Silver Spring, MD.
