Greg Leon: Congrats on your victory over Rickey Edwards (12-2, 3 KOs) on Friday. Can you give us some thoughts on your performance? Mykquan Williams: "Thank you. I thought I fought good, I was more aggressive than usual, I had some not anger I would say, but some good controlled aggression. For my first ten rounder I felt good and I can't complain, I thought I fought good and I thought I did good." GL: How did you feel going ten rounds for the first time? MW: "Yeah it felt good, I was zoned in. I was on point, my conditioning was real good, I was in shape and camp went well. I can't wait to get back in there."
GL: In your opinion is this the most impressive victory of your career?
MW: "I've been hearing that from other people, but I don't know. I thought I did real good, I got to watch the fight. Sometimes I don't even watch my fights and other times I do. People were saying for this to be my first ten rounder, this is the best performance they've seen."
GL: Was there anything about Rickey Edwards that surprised you at all?
MW: "Not at all. I didn't watch any tape on him so I can't be surprised if I didn't know anything about him."
GL: Without seeing the fight, is there anything that you feel you could've done to make it an easier night for you?
MW: "Not really. I was putting pressure on him, I was letting my hands go. I was breaking him down to the body because he was a taller opponent. As of right now I don't think I could have done anything that would have made the night easier for me."
GL: The judges scores were all over the place. One judge had it a shutout, another had it one round away from being a draw. How did you see the fight?
MW: "I didn't really pay attention to the scoring when it was announced, but I don't know what the hell they was watching. I don't feel like I gave a round away. Maybe one, two at the most. It definitely wasn't a close fight at all."
GL: Now that you've graduated to ten rounders, is it time for you to get in the faster lane?
MW: "Definitely and I can't wait. I'm just taking it one fight at a time, I'm not rushing, but I'm definitey looking forward to seeing what the future holds."
GL: Is now the time for you to be in a Shobox type of fight?
MW: "I would think it is. I think so. I'm getting up there and it's time to get some TV exposure on bigger networks, but I know my team has a plan for me and they've got something in the works. I'm just waiting to see what it is."
GL: I've done post fight interviews with you before where you've already known when your next fight is going to take place. Is this one of those occasions?
MW: (laughs) "I don't know honestly, but I'm guessing it's going to be around August. I might be wrong, who knows?"
GL: So you basically see yourself fighting twice more this year?
MW: "Definitely. My manager (Jackie Kallen) would like me to get in there three times, but I definitely see myself getting two more in."
GL: Closing thoughts for the fans.
MW: "Continue to support me, I want to thank everyone who already does, and thank you for reaching out like always my man. Stay tuned."
