Julian Williams had a hard time trying to dispatch Ishe Smith who was the
first Las Vagas born World Champion ever. Julian had predicted that he
would be the first to knockout Ishe Smith but had to settle for the UD. The
judges scored it 99-91, 98-92, and 97-93.
Julian Williams seemed to fade after the 4/5th Rounds and that’s when Ishe
turned up the heat. Ishe was bothered by accidental headbutts and it
showed. Ishe fought in spurts which just wasn’t enough in the judge’s
Julian is not looking to soon get back into title contention after his sole
loss to Jermall Charlo in Dec 2016. Maybe a proposed bout with Jarret Hurd
could be on the horizon.
