West Philly's Williams to put undefeated record on line

Light middleweight Julian “J Rock” Williams is 17-0-1 with 10 knockouts.

JULIAN "J Rock" Williams, an up-and-coming light middleweight from West Philly, will put his undefeated record on the line against Jamar Freeman tomorrow night in Shelton, Wash.

The 10-round bout at Little Creek Casino Resort will be televised on Showtime Extreme. Williams, 17-0-1 with 10 knockouts, already has three wins on the year, most recently defeating Eliezer Gonzalez in September.

Williams, 24, could get a title shot in 2015. His latest counterpart is coming off three consecutive wins but has fought a 10-round bout only once, in December 2011. The 29-year-old Freeman (13-3-2, 7 KOs) was a late sub as Williams' opponent after an injury to Edgar Ortega.

The bout is one in a quadrupleheader. The telecast starts at 10 p.m.
