Julian Williams defeats Marcello Matano via stoppage
- Updated: March 5, 2016
Julian Williams (23-0-1, 14 KOs) had little trouble on Saturday night taking care of Marcello Matano (16-2, 5 KOs) as he scored a seventh-round TKO in Bethlehem, PA.
The undefeated Philadelphian unloaded with combinations to the head and body, as he slowly broke him down throughout the fight. According to SHO Stats, Williams landed 59 percent of his power shots, making it more of a surprise that Matano lasted as long as he did.
“Maybe people will think they saw a chink in the armor tonight,” Williams said. “Maybe guys will come out from under the rock and get some of this West Philly work.
“Jermall has been watching my performances. Him and his brother know exactly who I am. He needs to fight or vacate now. He needs to step up, but he’s already laying his groundwork and making excuses.
“Step up and fight me. It’s two of the best junior middleweights in the world. It’s about greatness. I want to be great. All of you turkeys at 154 pounds, let’s fight.”
