Interview by Byron Spurlock
Lightweight Hylon Williams Jr. will continue to get attention Saturday night, when he fights on the undercard of the Marquez–Diaz fight card. Williams was a member of the USA Boxing Elite Junior Olympics Team. He is also a 13-time Regional Golden Gloves champion (Voted Outstanding Boxer), and a 10-time Regional Junior Olympic champion, 13-time Games of Texas champion. The list goes on and on.
What weight division are you fighting at for this fight?
This coming fight I will be fighting at 135, lightweight and I’m 7-0 with 2 KO’s.
For those that have not seen you, how would you describe yourself?
I feel that I’m a slick speedy boxer with good movement and I would think that anybody who has seen me would say the same thing. I’ve always used my ring generalship in the ring that has to be one of my biggest strengths.
Do you know anything about the person you’re fighting this Saturday night?
Not really I know that this person stands in my way of winning and that means I have to come out with a victory in the fight; in this business a fighter can’t afford to take a loss.
How often are you looking to fight right now?
At least once a month, that may be a little aggressive, but for 2009 I know that I want to get in some good quality fights. If I can get 6 to 7 fights this year that would be good.
What can we look forward to in your fight this Saturday?
You can look for me to control the fight and be smart about what I’m doing in the ring. Something is going to happen, hopefully something amazing.
