Vanda – who has gone the distant in toe-to-toe with contenders Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (twice), John Duddy and Sebastien Demers – is ready drill “The Drill!” Williams is coming off of a huge win stopping former three-time world title challenger Antwun Echols in June. Vanda is one of the most popular fighters in the State of Minnesota but Williams is a fan favorite at the Hinckley Casino having 4 of his last 5 fights at venue.
