(WTNH)–New Haven boxer Jimmy Williams has been a professional fighter for three years now. It’s not an easy climb to the top, and patience has become part of his routine.
Williams wants to be a world champion. For him, that would be the ultimate way to honor the memory of his mother, who was murdered in 2008. That case is still unsolved.
She was the first person who thought Williams would be a champion.
Now a dozen fights into his career, Williams, who’s still undefeated, is moving up the rankings. He’s one of the top 30 American super welterweights. He’s come a long way since his first fight in January 2013.
“I’m getting better each fight,” Williams said. “Each fight I’m getting more confidence. I know my time is going to come, but I’m just taking one fight at a time and keep winning.”
Williams fights next Friday at Foxwoods. He’ll enter the ring at 11-0-1.
