By Reynaldo Sánchez
Next Friday, February 3rd in the Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas, young lightweight prospect Hylon Williams (15-0, 3 KO's) will be face Cuba's Rances Barthelemy (14-0, 11 KO's) in an eight round bout. The fight promises fireworks. The trainer of Williams is former Cuban heavyweight champion Ramón Garbey.
“We've come to Las Vegas to show that we have the skills to defeat an excellent fighter with good quality like Rances,” Garbey said earlier this week. This week we begin the last stage of our training camp here in Vegas. We are training with the same determination that we brought from Florida."
On his part, Williams said - “I've come here ready to show that my boxing and skill will be too much for him. I know he is taller and he has more reach than me, but my team gave me sparring partners with the same characteristics as Rances and I hope to give the best of me that night."
