Last year, Julian “J-Rock” Williams (27-2-1, 16 KO) pulled off one of the biggest upsets in 2019 when he scored a unanimous decision over Jarrett Hurd to win the WBC and the IBF super welterweight belts at 154 lbs. However, he slipped against Jeison “Banana” Rosario (20-1-1, 14 KO) Saturday night in his hometown at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA in what will be deemed as one of the biggest upsets in 2020.
The fight started off rather even with both boxers landed crisp, clean punches. However, things quickly changed towards the end of the second round when Rosario opened up a cut over Williams’ left eye with a jab. Rosario then wobbled Williams with a barrage of punches in the middle of the fifth round. Rosario pushed Williams to the canvas though, which gave Williams a few seconds to recover, but Williams was still off-balance. When the fight resumed, Rosario landed a vicious right uppercut followed by a left hook. Finally, the referee stopped the fight.
