"At 19, Aaron is very young and we are in no rush," said William's co-manager Pat Doljanin. "But, I can say we are entertaining certain match-ups down the line. I read were Matt Godfrey's promoter is saying he's having a hard time finding opponents for his fighter. They must not be looking very hard, because Aaron Williams is here and he has three wins over Matt in the amateurs. I see this as a great match up. I'm sure Matt and his team will agree. Keep in mind, I don't mean any disrespect to Matt Godfrey or his team. All I'm saying is Aaron can answer the challenge and, hopefully, we can make it happen for a WBC Youth Title or something along those lines when the time is right."
Williams had an impressive amateur career racking-up a 93-10 record and capturing 9-national titles along the way. Williams, bronze medalist at the 2004 Olympic Trials, won National PAL, Silver Gloves, Golden Gloves, and Junior Olympic International Championships.
