Alexandria Williams to make Pro Debut on October 1st in Chicago
by Jay Monte
Alexandria Williams is a natural born athlete out of Long Island, NY. Having played football, softball, track and field and mainly basketball her whole life, she has always been involved in sports. She was an all Long Island basketball player in HS and a top rookie in division 2 college before joining the army. After her tour in Germany serving our country, her gym partner and friend, Titus Williams introduced her to the boxing world and she never looked back. She won the NY metro tournament and after two tries in the NY golden gloves, she won on her third try. She started her acting career but also missed the boxing gym so she decided to do both. She came back to the gym determined to make her mark in the pros. Her first test comes on October 1st as she makes her pro debut in Chicago against Jessica McCaskill.
Alexandria trains at the Freeport N.Y. PAL with head trainer Joe Higgins. Joe has trained hundreds of amateur champions and currently trains undefeated Light heavyweight pro Sean Monaghan (27-0 17 KO’S) and Light middleweight pro Patrick Day (12-2 6 KO’s) as well as numerous other pros and amateurs. Joe feels that Alexandria is a very focused boxer that knows what it takes to grind out the lifestyle. He said that she listens well and executes, and that stamina will never be an issue for her. Joe thinks that Alexandria can be a poster girl for Women’s pro boxing and that she is a pure athlete.
Alexandria pro boxing advisor is David Selwyn. David has managed and advised many female boxers —under his managerial leadership Flyweight Eileen Olszewski won 3 World titles and Jill Emery won the IFBA World Welterweight title. Selwyn feels that with Alexandria’s determination and athleticism she has what it takes to be another world champion boxer.
Team Williams would like to thank Women’s boxing Hall of Famer Bonnie Cannino and legendary Chicago based Matchmaker Jerry Alfano for helping make this fight happen. This will be only female bout on the Warrior’s Promotions boxing card at the U.I.C. Pavillion in Chicago Illinois on October 1st
