New champ Julian Williams is demanding strict bloodtesting on all future opponents

THOUGH Julian “J-Rock” Williams is the new WBA and IBF super-welterweight champion and a man of principle, he needs to be careful.

In demanding all future opponents do “at least 90 days random blood-testing”, Williams, 27-1-1 (16), is in danger of leaving himself without anyone to challenge him. It won’t be his fault, no, but it could be the sobering trade-off to the American’s wish for a level playing field. Unfortunately, such is the extent of the performance-enhancing drug problem in boxing, it’s rare to see a top 10 list, regardless of the weight-class, free from a cheat or two. It is the reality we, the fans, and they, the boxers, have come to accept. Williams, though, refreshingly, won’t stand for it the way some of his peers might.
