WILLIAMS-LUNDY LIGHTWEIGHT ACTION HEADLINES ESPN2 SHOW THIS WEEK
Press Release: This Friday night, lightweight Dannie Williams (22-2, 18 KOs) will return to action on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights against John Molina (24-2, 19 KOs) in the ten-round main event in Sante Fe, New Mexico. On March 30, 2013, Williams squared off against Hank Lundy and got off to a good start, dropping Lundy early in the first. However, Lundy went on to win a ten-round unanimous decision. Williams bounced back with a seventh-round TKO over Rynell Griffin (6-11) in October. Molina is coming off a first-round stoppage to then WBC lightweight titlist Antonio DeMarco in September. "I need to show the world in this fight that my last televised fight was not me. That was a fluke," said Williams. "The boxing world needs to see the real Dannie Williams... After I take care of business on Friday night, I want to get right back in the ring against ranked opponents and move my way to the top of the lightweight division." ESPN will begin live coverage at 9 p.m. ET.
