The boxing champion who went undefeated in MMA – his final fight ends FAST

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Jeremy ‘Half-man, Half-amazing’ Williams is a former elite-level professional boxer who later competed in mixed martial arts and was one of the very few boxers who found success in MMA.

His professional boxing record is a very impressive 43-5-1 with 36 of those victories coming by way of knockout. He also won a few titles throughout his pro career including the WBC Continental Americas Heavyweight Title as well as the WBO NABO Heavyweight Title.

In this video, we see the former boxing champion Williams compete in his fifth and final MMA fight against Auggie Padeken and don’t blink because it doesn’t last all that long.

As soon as the fight starts, it is clear to see just how high-level Jeremy Williams’ boxing ability is compared to most MMA fighters. Just check out his footwork and his use of the jab or how he digs to the body (something that is very underutilized in MMA).

His opponent quickly has enough of that though and takes the boxer down but Williams’ knows how to hold on and defend himself and eventually creates space and gets back to his feet.

Once back on the feet, it doesn’t take long for the boxer, Williams, to end this one. Check out the video below to see how he does it.

Jeremy Williams is known in the boxing world as one of the most feared knockout artists in the Heavyweight Division of his time, with two of his 35 knockouts coming before 30 seconds of the first round—he KO’d Arthur Weathers in 8 seconds on March 19, 1996 (the fastest KO in California boxing history) and KO’d Louis Monaco 28 seconds into their second meeting on March 17, 2002 (Williams had knocked Monaco out in 3 rounds 6 years earlier). Williams won the WBC Continental Americas Heavyweight Title twice. In 2005, he made his MMA debut at WFC: Rumble At the Ramada, defeating Josh Tamsen via TKO in the first round. He has since gone 5-0 with his latest win coming via way of TKO over Auggie Padeken on March 15, 2008.  [Source: Wiki]
