Foreman to Face Jimmy Williams on June 19

Rabbi Yuri Foreman is slated to battle Jimmy "Quiet Storm" Williams at Buckhead Fight Club in Atlanta, Georgia, USA on June 19. Foreman had been ready to fight Williams on March 7 in Louisville, Kentucky, but he came down with covid-19 and had to pull out.

Foreman (35-3, 10 KOs) has since recovered from the virus. Williams (17-5-2 6, KOs) earned a first round stoppage victory in a tune-up fight against Clifford McPherson on April 17.

As mentioned in The JBB's preview of this fight, Williams had been on a bit of of a skid leading up to their scheduled fight in March. The 34 year old Quiet Storm had been 0-4-1 in his last five before the first round stoppage of McPherson. Three of those loses were to good opponents: Mark DeLuca, Abel Ramos, and Brandun Lee. But one loss and the draw were to journeymen.

Foreman-Williams is scheduled for ten rounds at the junior middleweight limit of 154 pounds.

  1. Boxing is an amateur martial art that features two fighters (boxers) who employ technique, agility, and speed to throw and deflect punches on an opponent (rounder). The goal is to hold your opponent down until the match referee decides the bout is over. The match is won when a fighter knocks his opponent out with punches or kicks to the head, body, or groin. The match is also won by whichever fighter can remain standing for the duration of the bout.
