DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (February 26, 2013) - Fast-rising promotional company, Acquinity Sports, has signed 2008 U.S. Olympic Boxing Team alternate Hylon "Lil' Ced" Williams, Jr. to an exclusive contract.

Williams (16-1, 3 KOs), a native of Las Vegas, was a standout U.S. amateur boxer who compiled an impressive 145-20 record, highlighted by gold medal performances at the 2007 National Golden Gloves and 2006 National PAL tournaments.

Williams' co-managers, Luis DeCubas, Jr. and Alex Bornote, reached out to promoter Henry Rivalta, Acquinity Sports Vice President of Operations. Negotiations took place and the parties came to a mutually beneficial agreement.

"I'm very happy to have signed a promotional contract with Acquinity Sports," Williams said. "I'm anxious to get back into the ring and eager to prove that I'm one of the top 126-pounders in the world. I'd like to thank Luis, Alex and Henry for putting this deal together. I want to fight all of the top dogs."

Williams has campaigned for most if his professional career as a lightweight, however, he has committed to fighting as a featherweight. Acquinity Sports now has a terrific trio of featherweights with Williams joining undefeated stable-mates Claudio Marrero (14-0, 11 KOs), rated No. 2 by the World Boxing Association (WBA), and Alexei "The Hurricane" Collado (15-0, 14 KOs).

"We are very pleased to add a talent like Hylon to our growing roster of future champions," Rivala commented. "My partner, Gary Jonas, and I feel that Hylon is a talented young man with a bright future ahead of him. He's a slick boxer and legitimate threat for anybody in the featherweight division. I have no doubt in my mind Hylon can become world champion. He's young and hungry, works hard, and has a great attitude."

Acquinity Sports stable-mates Glendy Hernandez, Claudio Marrero and Hylon Williams Jr. enjoy a recent Miami Heat game.

Williams made his pro debut April 19, 2008, winning a four-round decision over Marcos Mendias, on the Bernard Hopkins-Joe Calzaghe undercard, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. The 22-year-old Williams won his first 15 pro fights before losing an eight-round decision to former Cuban National Champion Rances "Kid Blast" Barthelemy (14-0). In his last fight this past October, Williams shutout John Willoughby en route to a six-round decision.
