World Boxing Association (WBA) International middleweight champion American Austin Williams will defend his belt against Canadian veteran, Steve Rolls on September 23 at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando, Florida.

The bout will be a new test for Williams, 27, an undefeated regional champion who seeks to prove his worth in the historic 160-pound division.

Williams is the regional champion of the pioneer organisation and has been facing more and more high-level opponents on a steady climb up the professional boxing ladder.

The Milwaukee native will have a great showcase in this billboard and wants to define the fight in a convincing way.

However, Rolls, a man who has fought boxers of great level and who has a great record, which makes him an important opponent. He is remembered for having been Golovkin’s opponent in 2019, although he was knocked out by the Kazakh.
