Errol Spence-Julian Williams Coming in 2020?
Following Errol Spence Jr’s split-decision unification victory over Shawn Porter, he assumed a choice set of possible opponents. Now the unified IBF and WBC welterweight champion, he is now in a position to choose from a plethora of possible opponents.
One fighter in particular that sticks out in my mind, is fellow unified champion Julian Williams. In the post fight press conference, Spence mentioned that he’d move up and fight Williams. This isn’t the first time we here at 3kingsboxing.com have reported on this. In an interview, Williams’ trainer Stephen Edwards said he would love to stage that fight. Immediately, Spence said he would fight Williams.
Both men still have plenty of business to take care of in their respective divisions. However, this fight seems like a real possibility considering both men’s willingness and desire for a big fight. Although, it appears we may get Errol Spence vs Danny Garcia next. Garcia jumped into the ring to challenge the unified champion almost immediately after the Porter fight concluded.
The intrigue in this match-up would be whether or not Spence could successfully move up and dethrone a guy who’s talented and riding high at the moment. Could Spence bully a bigger foe, or would Williams be too much for the welterweight champ?
There are a lot of questions that could be answered at some point in 2020.
3kingsboxing.com will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
