TKO1/6
Coliseum Arena, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
From The Ring, May 1952, page 63, and the New Orleans Times-Picayune (Jack Kincaid). In both sources, Williams's opponent is given as "Paul Banks." Thus it is possible that he fought either Paul Blanks, who fought earlier as a middleweight, or Ray Banks,whom he knocked out in one round on March 28. His opponent is given here as Ray Banks, but may possibly be incorrect.
