WBA and IBF junior middleweight champion Julian ‘J-Rock’ Williams 27-1-1 (16) is promising an explosive performance when he makes the first defence of his unified crown against hard-hitting contender Jeison Rosario 19-1-1 (13) at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania this Saturday night.

“This is going to be an exciting night of boxing. I don’t need to say too much, but I’ll definitely let my hands do the taking for me on fight night,” said Williams.
