Cruiserweight Joseph Williams (7-0, 6 KOs) had his impressive power on display on Friday night, needing just 2:47 to shut down Michael Wilmer (5-8-1, 4 KOs). In fact, Williams dropped Wilmer with the first punch he threw in the fight, a punishing right hook just seconds after the first bell. Williams did a nice job of working levels to quickly break his opposition down, and every punch had bad intentions. In the final minute of the opening frame, Wilmer went down for a second time following a hard right hook to the body, and referee Steve Willis waved it off seconds after action resumed when Williams had him on the canvas for a third time after another big flurry.
