Tramaine Williams Sentenced to 2.5 Years in Prison

by David P. Greisman

Junior featherweight prospect Tramaine Williams — who had been arrested earlier this year just two days before he was to fight at Madison Square Garden — was sentenced today to two and a half years behind bars, according to Connecticut’s New Haven Register.

He was put in handcuffs in January and pleaded guilty in February to charges of possessing an assault weapon and possessing narcotics. Three months ago, police conducted raids on accused gang members and associates, and they went to a home Williams shared with others, finding a Tec-9 gun underneath his bed.

Williams’ attorney said the gun was never intended to be used, but was more like a “collector’s item,” according to the report.

He was taken into custody prior to a bout that would’ve been underneath Mikey Garcia vs. Juan Carlos Burgos.

The 21-year-old turned pro in April 2012 and is listed at 8-0 with 2 knockouts and 1 no contest.

I was just wondering about this kid. I remembered following his amateur career. These kids have to learn to make the sacrifices for their career and leave the streets alone.
