Carlos Adames vs. Julian Williams | Showtime - June 24, 2023

Alberto Puello vs Rolando Romero set for May 13, Carlos Adames vs Julian Williams for June 24 on Showtime

Other fights include the return of Gary Antuanne Russell, Erickson Lubin vs Luis Arias, and Fernando Martinez vs Jade Bornea

Showtime’s latest schedule update includes a slightly delayed title fight and a brand-new tripleheader. Alberto Puello’s previously revealed 140-lb title defense against Rolando Romero will now land on May 13th, while Carlos Adames vs Julian Williams leads a June 24th show at The Armory in Minneapolis.

There’s still no telling when Jermall Charlo will return to action, so Adames (22-1, 17 KO) will defend his interim WBC middleweight title against Williams (28-3-1, 16 KO). “J-Rock” has fought just once since suffering consecutive losses to Jeison Rosario and Vladimir Hernandez, a unanimous decision over Argentine journeyman Rolando Wenceslao Mansilla in November.

We’ve seen Williams flip the script before, but moving up to challenge a genuinely lethal 160-pounder seems like a tall task.

That card will also see Erickson Lubin (24-2, 17 KO) look to bounce back against the hot-and-cold Luis Arias (20-3-1, 9 KO) and Fernando Martinez (15-0, 8 KO) defend his IBF super flyweight title against mandatory challenger Jade Bornea (18-0, 12 KO).

Press Release

WBC interim middleweight champion Carlos Adames will defend his title against Julian Williams on June 24th at The Armory in Minneapolis. From the Dominican Republic, Adames (22-1, 17 KOs) gained his secondary title when he knocked out Juan Macías Montiel in the third round on October 8th.

Adames wants to stay active while he waits for his chance to face Jermall Charlo, the WBC champion who is pushing two years of inactivity.

Williams, from Philadelphia, will be fighting for the second time at middleweight when he challenges Adames. The former 154-pound champion recently defeated Argentina's Rolando Mansilla (18-12-1, 8 KOs) by eight-round unanimous decision on November 5th.
