Ruben "Hollywood" Williams outpointed veteran Richard Grant in Ybor City, Florida's Main Event III Friday night before another excellent crowd in the series of pro boxing events co-promoted by Silverhawk Championship Boxing and Ringsports Boxing. Williams, who just last year gave Jeff Lacy a tough battle in an IBF world title contest, won the super middleweight bout by margins of 78-45, 77-75 and 78-74 to improve to 28-2 with 17 KOs. Heavyweight Sherman Williams (30-10-2, 16 KOs) was aggressive throughout his decision win against Earl Ladson (12-10, 7 KOs).
Middleweight Corey Johnson upped his record to 33-2-2 with 11 KOss with a stoppage of Karl Willis at 2:07 of the second round. Johnson landed to the body and threw powerful combinations while pinning Willis to the ropes. Willis was dropped twice and cut above his right eye before the referee stepped in to prevent more damage.
Cruiserweight Alfredo Escalera, Jr. stopped Cullen Rogers in 49-seconds of the first round as the son of a former world champion raised his record to 9-0, 7 KOs. Roger's record fell to 19-13, 5 KO's.
Sarasota super featherweight Adrian Perez started the evening off with an action packed victory over Tampa's Ricky Thompson who was battered from pillar to post and was often in quick retreat from Perez' punches. Judges scored in favor of Perez by scores of 40-36, 39-37 and 40-36.
