Photos: Hylon Williams Jr. Trains Hard For Barthelemy Bout

By Reynaldo Sanchez

On February 3rd, unbeaten Hylon Williams 15-0-0 (3KO's) and Rances Barthelemy 14-0-0 (11 KO's), will trade leather in Las Vegas, Nevada. On Wednesday, Williams held an eight round sparring session against Amir Iman, at The Heavyweight Factory GYM in Hollywood, Fla.

The 21-years-old Williams and his trainer, Cuban Ramón Garbey, prepare themselves to face the Cuba's Barthelemy in a 132-pound fight. Williams is lightweight, however in his last fight he moved up to super lightweight and defeated Andre Baker on December 3rd.

“Hylon can fight up to 140 pounds; nevertheless, we believe that its best at this stage to fight at 130 pounds. In the future we can go up to 135 or 140, but at this time we believe that his best weight is lightweight," his manager Alex Bornote said.

We observe that Williams does very well against Amir Iman, a tall young boxer like Barthelemy. Williams displayed his speed and combinations, which are going to be his main tools to keep his unbeaten record.

“We work with different fighters, looking for balance between speed and power. We are fighting in five weeks, and the progress is obvious. The sparring partners with similar characteristics to the next opponent are necessary in this stage,” indicated Ramón Garbey.

Williams and Barthelemy will stake their unbeaten records, and the winner will be on the road to a solid ranking among the top sanctioning bodies.

Wonder if he's sparred with guillermo rigondeaux since their training must have overlapped at the heavyweight factory gym.

[B][I]OK, now a couple of minutes later when I come back to this thread I realize they fixed Garbéy's name, cause the 1st time(when I posted My 1st comment) the name was spelled with a v...[/I][/B]

[B][I]¿Does anyone know if Rances Barthelemy is related to Yan Barthelemy? & there's another Cuban fighter that just started fighting(at least as a pro) named Leduan Barthelemy who I'm also wondering if he related.. [/I][/B]

[B][I]I think they spelled Williams's trainers name wrong, cause his trainer looks like Cuban ex-olympian & former pro prospect Ramón Garbéy(not Garvey) who was a BAD ASS amateur fighter, he even KO'd in the amateurs retired pro undefeated ex-world champ…
