Undefeated Tramaine Williams
Returns At Foxwoods On June 29
Roc Nation Sports today announced that featherweight boxer
Tramaine Williams (17-0, 6 KOs) will continue his amazing
journey in 2019 when he returns the ring in a ten-round bout
on June 29th at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket,
CT where he will take on tough veteran opponent Neil John
Tabanao (17-5, 11 KOs). “Homecoming Kings”, is Live
Championship Boxing presented by CES Boxing, that will also
feature several additional fights including another New
Haven boxer, Chad Dawson.
Williams, fighting out of New Haven, Conn., is a former
10-time national amateur champion and at one point was
ranked among the top 10 featherweights in the world. He has
kept very busy in 2019, with this being his third fight of
the year. In his last fight on April 4, 2019, Williams
claimed victory over Ernesto Guerrero (31-26, 21 KOs) of
Mexico by eight round unanimous decision at The Rim in
Hampton, N.H. Williams has hopes that a win in his home
state of Connecticut will be a major step towards a title
fight later in 2019.
The William-Tabanao fight and event will be broadcast on
Facebook’s Fight Night Live.
“Cannot wait for my homecoming on June 29th,” said Williams.
“I’m sure the fans are excited too because it will be one
for the books. Looking forward to impressing this sold out
“With his fast track schedule in 2019, Tramaine has
established himself as the hottest prospect in the 122 lb.
division,” said Roc Nation Sports boxing promoter Dino Duva.
“If he takes care of business Saturday night, I predict he
will next have something very exciting lined up quickly that
will be a career defining fight. I want to sincerely thank
my old friend Jimmy Burchfield for putting Tramaine on his
show at Foxwoods. Tramaine’s home fan base is buying tickets
in droves for the fight, it will be an exciting night for
him and New Haven fans.”
