28.02.07 – Undefeated Cruiserweight prospect Aaron Williams, (11-0-1, 7 KO’s), will headline Bobby Hitz’ “Wednesday Night Fights,” March 21s t, at the beautiful Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, IL, just 35-minutes northwest of Chicago. The first fight starts at 7:30 p.m. “We’re grateful to Mr. Hitz for having us on this card,” said Williams’ advisor, Patrick Doljanin. “Aaron has made a lot of fans in Chicago who appreciate a well skilled, polished boxer/puncher. This is a rare opportunity for Chicago boxing fans to see a future champion in the making.” ..
In his last Chicago appearance, January 24th, Williams gave a boxing clinic as he dropped Charles Davis twice in the 1st round on route to a lopsided unanimous decision.
“I’ve got a lot of fans in Chicago,” said Williams during a phone interview. “I’m getting a lot of great work here (the Top Rank Gym, Las Vegas) and I’m looking forward to stepping-up for my first eight-rounder.”
At just 20 years old, Williams has caught the attention of many boxing aficionados and insiders. He has served as a sparring partner for former world champion Chris Byrd, Sam Peter and, most recently, was the main sparring partner for newly crowned Light Heavyweight Champion, Chad Dawson.
March will be a busy month for the young Cruiserweight. He’s scheduled to fight nine days later in Cleveland.
“We will continue to keep Aaron busy,” added manager Albert Falcon. “This will be a big year for Aaron and he will be fighting for the WBC Youth Title by the end of the year.”
As an amateur, Williams had over 100 fights and won 9-national titles, including three wins over current NABF Cruiserweight Champion, Matt Godfrey.
The Sears Centre is a 35 minute commute from Chicago. The action starts at 7:30 p.m.
