Austin Williams Returns to Action on December 4 to Face Quatavious Cash
It’s been nine months since middleweight boxer Austin “Ammo” Williams (8-0, 6 KO’s) has plied his brutal trade in the ring. In his last bout, versus Denis Douglin on March 13, Williams won by a wide unanimous decision. Then, roughly one month after the dustup, Ammo cryptically backed away from the sport. When the Wisconsin native initially hit the pause button, he offered mental health as the reason for his brief hiatus.
Prior to his stepping away, the talented prospect had been enjoying a successful string of contests. Not only was he winning, Ammo was receiving a good amount of air time on DAZN due to his Matchroom Boxing promotional affiliation. In fact, Williams was briefly trying to turn a spat with former two-division world champion Billy Joe Saunders into a legitimate prizefight. Given how fresh he is to the professional ranks though, Ammo knew that he would need a little bit more leverage to secure the bout. That’s why he vowed to callout the UK bruiser once he had acquired a title.
REGROUPED AND RELOADED
It’ll be interesting to see how Austin Williams performs now that he is reingratiating himself to the sport. In the upcoming showdown, Ammo will face the challenge of Quatavious Cash (14-2, 8 KO’s). The contest will mark Cash’s fourth of the year. Outside of his last bout, against Antonio Todd, which ended in a no contest due to an accidental headbutt, Cash has enjoyed a four-fight win streak since last losing to Marcos Hernandez on November 9, 2018.
Yet, it should be noted that he has been toppling remarkably uninspired competition. For example, in the bout preceding Todd, Quatavious Cash claimed a unanimous decision nod over Estevan Payan who was 1-12-1, 1 KO at the time of their collision. Naturally, Ammo will be viewed as the favorite going in but we’ll have to wait and see if Cash proves to be the soft touch that he appears to be on paper.
