As the fight neared, Williams held an open media workout for the press, but as usual, was rather secretive about the true nature of his preparation for the very first defense of the title. The media was allowed to watch some basic mitt work and shadow boxing, but not so much as a glimpse of his sparring session was permitted.

Higgins: Parker deserves 70/30 split vs. Usyk

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

He’s the A-side and so if Usyk wants to share the ring with Parker, I would be expecting 70/30 open book revenue share in Parker’s favor.

Jaime Munguia spoke about his successful 160-pound debut against Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan in San Antonio, Texas.

“This was a new division for me,” said Munguia. “I felt stronger and with more conditioning, I just needed to adjust my speed to feel fully comfortable. I would give my performance a 7 or 8 because I needed to do a few more things, but we will get there fight by fight. I was confused about whether to attack or not to attack. Sometimes I thought I had to attack, but I didn’t. But thanks to my corner and Erik Morales I was able to get him. On the last rounds, I was more attentive, even though I still got punched a few times.”

“I would like to fight the best of this division: Canelo, Golovkin, or the Charlos. I know they have more experience, but I look forward to those fights. I want to thank everyone in San Antonio and Viva Mexico.”

Light heavyweight contender Joe Smith, Jr. spoke about the scoring in his split decision win over Jesse Hart on Saturday night in Atlantic City.

“I was a little bit nervous when that one judge had it for Hart, but I really believe I won that fight. Jesse said he was going to fight me, but when I went to fight in the center of the ring, he retreated and I said ‘I thought you were going to fight me.’

“I want any one of the champions. I have never turned down a fight. (Promoter) Joe DeGuardia said he thought that was preposterous how one judge scored it.

“There’s a big fight next week (Eleider Alvarez vs. Michael Seals). Let’s see what happens.”

Munguia rocked O’Sullivan in round one and threw hard shots throughout the fight. O’Sullivan was able to exploit Munguia’s defensive shortcomings at times. Munguia was deducted a point for a low blow in round six. O’Sullivan went down in round seven from another shot ruled a low blow, then took more punishment. Munguia finally battered O’Sullivan to the deck to end it as his corner threw in the towel at 2:17 of round eleven.

Former WBC female heavyweight champion Alejandra “La Tigre” Jimenez (13-0-1, 9 KOs) moved down to super middleweight to dethrone WBC and WBO female world champion Franchon “The Heavy-Hitting Diva” Crews-Dezurn (6-1, 2 KOs) by ten round split decision.

Light heavyweight Joe Smith, Jr. (25-3, 20 KOs) dominated Jesse Hart (26-3, 21 KOs) over ten rounds on Saturday night before a crowd of 3,415 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, but only won by split decision.

The harder-hitting Smith aggressively pressed the action while Hart tried with limited success to operate from outside. Smith rocked Hart in round four, dropped him in round seven, then punished him the rest of the way. Scores were 97-92, 98-91 for Smith, and a bizarre 95-94 for Hart.

Hart had vowed to avenge Hall of Fame Bernard Hopkins’ loss to Smith in 2016, but instead Smith made it 2-0 against Philly.

In a clash between unbeaten super middleweights, Steven “Stone Cold” Nelson (16-0, 12 KOs) won by eighth round TKO over Cem Kilic (14-1, 9 KOs). Terence Crawford stablemate Nelson progressively broke down Kilic until Kilic’s trainer Buddy McGirt got on the ring apron to protect his fighter from further damage. Time was 1:44.
