Popular New England fan favorite “MARVELOUS” MYKQUAN WILLIAMS (7-0, 4 KOs), of East Hartford, Connecticut, will return against battle-tested EVINCII DIXON, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, over six rounds this Friday night, September 15, at Foxwoods Resort Casino, fighting on the acclaimed “Broadway Boxing” series presented by DIBELLA ENTERTAINMENT.

Just 19 years old, the all-action Williams, guided by the legendary JACKIE KALLEN, will be making his seventh start at the legendary venue, home to decades of boxing’s most epic battles.

“I’ve been training at my home gym, Manchester ROCS Boxing Club, with my trainer Paul Cichon for this fight. My main sparring partner has been Matt Remillard. He’s been a huge help to me while I work on different things.

“I actually got started in boxing at the age of seven when I went to the Manchester P.A.L. with my aunt and watched her train. Her name is Adelita Irrizarry. Once I saw her fight I was hooked.

“I was a five-time national champion in the amateurs, but always felt my style was more suited for the professional ranks. I had accomplished everything I wanted to as an amateur so I turned professional.”

Williams turned professional 10 days after his eighteenth birthday celebrating with a first-round knockout of Dean Walsh on April 16, 2016, at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

“I’m thrilled with the way my professional career is going. Everybody on my team has done a terrific job.

“I love fighting at Foxwoods. I always get a wealth of fan support there. It truly feels like home.

“I want to have a career like Terence Crawford or Floyd Mayweather, fight the best and beat the best. Friday night is another chance to put on a great performance for the fans as I aspire to be like those two.”

In a special feature attraction women’s eight-round junior lightweight battle, SHELLY “SHELITO’S WAY” VINCENT (19-1, 1 KO) squares off against ANGEL “NONSTOP” GLADNEY (9-12-1, 6 KOs).
