Anyone else looking out for Tramaine Williams?

He's faced solid enough competition for a guy with 13 fights man, hopefully he does get a proper step up in the first half of next year though
Yes, fair point. I guess I'm just a bit frustrated that he's not getting more exposure, after fighting on the Ward - Kovalev Bill. I've had another look at Collado, and he's pretty good, actually. He was a pretty big prospect himself, after winning an amateur Word Junior Title a few years ago. Based in Ireland now, I believe.

An update.
Williams is due to fight tomorrow night in Philly over 6 rounds. I think the original opponent pulled out, so they've had to draft in a late replacement, Antonio Rodriguez, who has lost more than he's won. I can't see what TW will learn form this fight, but I suppose it's important to keep busy. I hope his promoters get him some more challenging opposition soon, as he is a brilliant guy to watch.

After almost a year out. I'm glad to report that my favourite prospect is back in the ring with a first round stoppage of Mexican Jose Rodriguez. The fight happened back in February although, for some reason, Boxrec seems to have been slow in updating it. Although it's great to see him back in action, it's worrying that the reason for his long hiatus is that he was in jail again (for an undisclosed offence) for a few months last year. Still, let's hope that this talented kid is back on the straight and narrow for good, as he is brilliant to watch. Technically as good as anyone I've seen in recent years.

16 fights in 7 years.

Needs less jail. More fights.

Good news. After a couple of tune-up fights, and a frustrating series of set-backs, including stupid and unnecessary brushes with the Law (entirely his own fault, admittedly) The highly talented New Haven southpawTramaine Williams is back this weekend on the Hooker - Ramirez undercard against the very powerful and muscular Yenifel Vicente who has stopped his last ten opponents. If Tramaine can win well against a dangerous opponent like Vicente, he could at last start to gain the sort of exposure that a fighter of his ability should be getting. Anyone who hasn't seen Tramaine Williams in action, try to catch him this weekend. You are in for a treat!

Me too. Vicente is a real threat I reckon. He has a helluva punch on him. His KO of previously unbeaten Juan Dominguez in 2015 was brutal, and Dominguez never fought again.
