Williams vs. Cuello Headlines PBC TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS on FS1 Tonight


Julian WilliamsTonight junior middleweight rising star Julian “J Rock” Williams (20-0-1, 12 KO’s) will risk his undefeated record when he takes on rugged Argentinian Luciano Cuello (35-3, 17 KO’s) in a scheduled 10-round bout that will headline Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS fight card that will be televised by FS1 and FOX Deportes at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by King’s Promotions, are priced at $100, $75 and $45, not including applicable service charges and taxes and are on sale now. Tickets are available at www.ticketmaster.com. To charge by phone call Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000.

Williams, of Philadelphia, has established himself as one of the top contenders in the junior middleweights division, but he first must get by the tough, experienced Cuello, who has only lost to top contender Willie Nelson as well as former world champions Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Saul Alvarez.

With a win, Williams would not only put himself in select company of conquerors of Cuello but he would be elevated into major fights in the latter part of 2015 or early 2016.

“Training camp went great,” said Williams. “I had a long 9-week camp. I am in great condition as usual and ready to get in there.

“Cuello is a tough guy. He is a real fighter that will come to other guy’s countries and hometowns and put up tough fights.”

Besides his great talent, Williams has been lauded for the way he conducts himself both in and out of the ring. Despite fighting close to home and on national television, 25-year-old Williams won’t be fazed.

“I really don’t think about being close to home or even that the fight is on television. It is an honor, but I am not going to let fighting close to home distract me.”

For the past several months, Williams and former junior middleweight world champion Austin Trout have engaged in a feud on social media and with a win on Tuesday night, they could be headed for a showdown in their next bouts.

“I will address the stuff with Trout after I win on September 22nd. I am close to getting a big opportunity and a shot at the title. I am ready now.”

“I just want the fans to tune into FS1 or come out to the Sands and enjoy the ‘J- Rock’ experience.”
