Chavez-Angulo is Officially Off, Julian Williams vs. Castro Added

Top super welterweight contender Julian “J-Rock’’ Williams will take on Mexico’s Javier Francisco Castro in a 10-round bout that has been added to an exciting night of undercard action presented by Premier Boxing Champions Saturday, December 1 from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

The event is headlined by the heavyweight world championship showdown between WBC champion Deontay Wilder and lineal champion Tyson Fury live on SHOWTIME PPV® presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

The Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. vs. Alfredo Angulo bout, originally scheduled to appear on the December 1 SHOWTIME BOXING: SPECIAL EDITION® telecast, is off because Chavez’s father, Julio, Sr., and his team didn’t believe Chavez Jr. was ready to return to the ring. Chavez, Jr. will return at some time in the future. Angulo will still appear in a bout on the undercard.
