All the details for Jarrett Hurd vs Julian ‘J-Rock’ Williams
Jarrett Hurd is the tall, rangy, powerful Super WBA and IBF super-welterweight champion from Maryland. He holds wins over the likes of Erislandy Lara and Austin Trout. Julian Williams, or ‘J-Rock’ if you prefer, comes from Philadelphia and has won four straight since a five-round defeat to Jermall Charlo, in which he was dropped three times. Given Charlo remains unbeaten and is now up at middleweight suggests little shame in that setback.
The show takes place on Saturday May 11.
EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia.
Fox show the fight live in the US from 8pm ET/5pm PT and ITV 4 broadcast in the UK from 1am on the 12th.
