After a sizzling start to his pro career, the New Haven, Conn. Native was
inactive for nearly two years (2-13-2015) due to out-of-the-ring issues,

dominated *Eduardo
Garza* (6-1) en route to an eight-round unanimous decision.in the CBS
Sports Network co-featured event in Wichita, Kansas last March.

Williams produced the most signature victory to date, stopping former NABO,
WBC US and California State super featherweight champion *Christopher
Martin* (30-8-3) in the second round.

Williams first began boxing at the age of nine, accumulating an impressive
record of 97-10 over his amateur career. During that span, he was a
ten-time national amateur champion, a two-time Ringside World champion and
a four-time Silver Gloves champion. He also was a PAL National Junior
Golden Gloves champion.

Luna, fighting out of the Dominican Republic, is a proven upset specialist
having defeated then unbeaten (15-0-1, 11 KOs) *Jose Lopez*, on June 6,
2015 at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, by way of a six-round unanimous
decision. Lopez is currently the reigning WBO International super
featherweight champion.

Former amateur boxing prodigy, undefeated Brooklyn light heavyweight
prospect *Junior “The Young God” Younan* (12-0, 9 KOs), will face an
opponent to be determined in the eight-round co-featured event. Also
fighting under the Roc Nation banner, the 21-year-old Younan compiled a
sterling 90-5 amateur record, highlighted by his three-time Ringside World
and three-time National PAL championship performances.
