Mykquan Williams May Soon Face a Ranked Junior Welterweight

The junior welterweight division is one of the hottest divisions in boxing. While everyone is paying attention to the top names, prospect “Marvelous” Mykquan Williams (20-0-2, 9KO) is beginning to get some eyes on him.

Williams had to overcome several hardships early in life, proving he has the mental makeup, which is why Lou Dibella of Dibella Entertainment has signed him to his stable.

Inspired by his aunt and former pro boxer Adelita Irizarry, Marvelous made a mark in the amateur circuit, winning five national championships. He even participated in the 2015 New England Golden Gloves before turning professional in 2016.

Williams marched through fights and took advantage of an opportunity to win the WBC USA minor title by defeating Rickey Edwards in 2019. In 2021, he entered the minds of the boxing public with a surprising victory over undefeated Yeis Gabriel Solano live on Showtime.

Marvelous was equally impressive in a step-up fight against undefeated Milwaukee native Luis Feliciano. Going into the fight, he was viewed as the slight underdog, especially considering Feliciano was being trained by the famous Ismael Salas.

When the bell sounded, Marvelous put on a spectacular performance. His speed, counterpunching, footwork, and ring IQ were on full display. In addition, Williams’ statement-making sixth-round stoppage managed to catch the attention of some boxing fans.

This victory saw the 25-year-old from Hartford, Connecticut grab the WBA Continental Americas title. He proved to be ready for the next level and could fight someone inside the top fifteen in the rankings.
