Press Release: Idaho hero Kenny “The Emmett Eliminator” Keene fights ex-IBF cruiserweight champion “King” Arthur Williams (42-14-1) on July 29, 2006 in a ten-round bout at the Qwest Arena in Boise, Idaho as part of Roy Jones’ comeback show. According to his publicist, Keene (51-3) is being considered for a fight later this year against WBA titlist Virgil “Quicksilver” Hill (50-5). At a Boise press conference last Friday, Hill showed up and said he will be scouting Keene as a potential opponent for his next fight, provided Keene defeats Williams and receives a top 15 rating from the WBA. Hill mentioned that his own home state of North Dakota would be more than accommodating in terms of hosting a Hill-Keene fight, but that it will be determined by economics, including site fee offers. Kenny has mentioned many times that he would like to end his career with a fight against Hill. “Our July 29th pay-per-view show will serve as a test for a potential Hill-Keene fight in Boise,” SEMI Director of Operations Ritch Danner said. “We’ll see if Boise, all of Idaho, will support Hill-Keene based on the July 29th turnout.” Keene is riding an eight-year, 11-fight win streak. His most notable victories have been against Rob Calloway, Richie LaMontagne and Andrew Maynard. Williams captured the IBF cruiserweight title in 1998 with a ninth-round knockout of Imamu Mayfield. He also has beaten Dwight Qawi and Adolfo Washington.
