One month after announcing a new promotional affiliation and weight class at which he will campaign, Hylon Williams now has a fight date to which he can look forward.

The 22-year old featherweight prospect will return to the ring on April 5 in the Dominican Republic, Boxingscene.com was informed Friday afternoon. An opponent is still being sought for what serves as his first fight since last October.

Williams (16-1, 3KO) has since announced that he will be campaigning in the featherweight division and has recently signed with Acquinity Sports, whose offices are based in South Florida.

I am very excited about my new team man. I never worked this hard since I have been in boxing. This gym is the real deal. My manager Luis deCubas, Jr. told me it would be a great scenario for my future and I am glad to be here. My new head coaches are working my butt off. Herman Caicedo and Micky Ward push me to the limit.

With the fight just two weeks away, there exists the concern of the type of opponent for whom to train. Williams isnt at all bothered by the mystery. The fact that he has a fight to look forward to for the first time in more than five months is good enough.

Im fighting on April 5th my opponent just fell out so were looking for a replacement. I told my promoter Henry Rivalta that it doesnt matter who it is. I am readier now than Ive ever been and I want to fight the best at 126 - right handed, southpaw it just doesnt matter. Im taking off to another level. See you all there, baby. Houston, this run is for you!

The show in Dominican Republic is still being put together, as Acquinity Sports has a lot of balls up in the air at the moment. The second-year promotional company just recently celebrated the crowning of its first champion when Argenis Mendez scored a 4th round knockout of Juan Carlos Salgado in their rematch earlier this month to capture a belt in the 130 lb. division.

Having recently loaded up on young talent, Acquinity expects to add plenty of other fighters to its championship archives. The belief is that Williams is right there at the top of the list of future champs.

This kid is something very special, insists promoter Henry Rivalta. He spars guys and hits them repeatedly while looking at me observing him work. His peripheral vision is amazing. Hes like a baby Sugar Ray Leonard, the most technical kid in the gym.

I believe at 126 he will go very far very soon and become a World Champion, he definitely has a great spirit and the right attitude it is a pleasure for me and my partner Gary to have him here with us. At that weight he should box the socks of any opponent.
