Julian Williams: Munguia is Green as Grass, I'll Never Get Him

Junior middleweight contender Julian Williams (25-1-1, 15 KOs) is building up a win streak after suffering a fifth round knockout loss at the hands of then IBF junior middleweight champion Jermall Charlo.

Among his recent wins, Williams won a decision in November 2017 over Ishe Smith and then outboxed Nathaniel Gallimore in April.

And now he's position to secure a world title shot - as the boxer has been ordered to take part in two final eliminators.

Williams has been ordered to face Japan's Takeshi Inoue (13-0-1,7 KOs), in a final eliminator for a crack at WBA, IBO, IBF champion Jarrett Hurd.

And he's also been put in line for a bout with Erislandy Lara (25-3-2, 14 KOs) in a WBC final eliminator, for a fight with champion Jermell Charlo.

"I like the position of being able to face any one of those guys, because you never know what will happen. People can decide to move up or someone can get hurt. I think I’m in the best position out of anyone who doesn’t have a world title. I’ll take the first available date with Inoue, but I think a fight between me and Lara is good for boxing," Williams told Premier Boxing Champions.

"I expect to go out there and to take care of business against Inoue in November so that I can consider the landscape and take a serious look at which one of these guys’ titles I’m going to be taking."

One fighter that Williams does not expect to face any time soon, if ever, is WBO champion Jaime Munguia.

"Jamie Munguia is as green as grass, so I don’t think that I’ll ever get that fight. The only way I’d get Munguia is if I became the mandatory. In addition, how does Brandon Cook get on pay-per-view as a co-main event? That’s strange," Williams said.

"Now I’m not saying that Jamie Munguia is a bum or anything. Jamie Munguia is a big, strong kid. Nevertheless, he’s just very green when it comes to his experience. (The fact that the broadcasters) never mentioned (Williams, Hurd or Charlo) means they know that he’s not ready to fight any of us top 10 guys.'

[QUOTE=Eastlos;19216693]LOL, Ishe is Cook level nothing more and Gallimore has never been anything besides a prospect, where Liam Smith is a former champ @ 154. So yes a win against Smith means more than either of those busters you name[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=OnlyBeingHonest;19216555]So Liam Smith is better than Gallimore and Ishe Smith? Haha.[/QUOTE] Then 40 year old 100 loss Smith yes. Gallimore lost to some bums name I cant even pronounce. And drew with another bums name I cant pronounce.

[QUOTE=Jab jab boom;19216630]Munguia is like a young Margarito with natural power (not loaded wraps). With that being said that also means that he can be out boxed and gets hit quite easily. [B]They'll only match him with certain types of…
