    BoxingScene.com has learned that plans are in store for Williams (27-1-1, 16KOs) to make the first defense of his unified 154-pound crown on Jan. 18 at the Liacouras Center on Temple University grounds in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Neither an opponent nor platform has been solidified for the occasion, other than ruling out a previously targeted rematch with Jarrett ‘Swift’ Hurd.

    Original plans called for a rematch between Williams and Hurd, which was targeted for Dec. 14 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The bout would have aired live in primetime on Fox, as did their fiery first fight in which Williams floored Hurd (23-1, 16KOs)— then an unbeaten and unified titlist in round two en route to a well-earned unanimous decision in their Fight of the Year-level war this past May in Fairfax, Virginia.

    Efforts are also currently in place to secure a slot for local unbeaten 122-pound contender Stephen ‘Cool Boy Steph’ Fulton (17-0, 8KOs), whom has emerged as a top prospect and on the verge of title contention in 2020.

    Book it Al! Lara has become quite the exciting fighter in the twilight of his career.

    Glad to hear. Thought he was just another Charlo opponent. Didn’t think we’d hear about him ever accomplishing anything. What an impressive comeback. Wonder why no Jarrett Hurd rematch though?

    After saying yes to the rematch, Hurd declined saying he did not felt ready to rematch Julian right away.
