In a scheduled four round bout at the sold out 2300 Arena in South Philly, Kensington southpaw Tyhler Williams (5-0, 4 KO) scored a decisive victory over Sunbury, PA’s Jordan Morales last Saturday night on the undercard of a Jeter Promotions event.
The hard-hitting Williams was too much for Morales, as the ref called the fight at 2:02 in the 2nd round after two strong knock downs by body blows, and a flurry of punches left Morales wobbly. With the win, Williams extends his unbeaten streak to 5-0 with 4 KO.
Williams trains at Rock Ministries Gym on Kensington Avenue with coach Buddy Osborne. He is a graduate of Northeast Magnet School and lives within a few blocks of the gym.
Before turning professional, Williams had an outstanding amateur career with state and regional titles in the Silver Gloves, Golden Gloves and Junior Olympics competitions. In 2017, he won the National Ringside World Championship.
After the victory, Williams thanked his trainers and sponsors, including the Operating Engineers Union local 542, the Lower Makefield Police Department, Powertrain East Greenwich, and Rock Ministries.
“I want to thank God for putting me in my position and allowing me to have a great team in my corner.”
His next bout is yet to be scheduled.
