Williams went third overall in the 2005 NBA Draft after helping lead the Fighting Illini to an NCAA Final Four appearance. The Illini ended up losing in the championship game to the North Carolina Tar Heels. Williams was the prototypical NBA point guard. He possessed excellent court vision, a soft shooting touch, and toughness on both ends of the court. In five of his NBA seasons, Williams averaged a double-double of points and assists.

While there is no confirmation regarding his first opponent in the boxing ring, rumors indicate it may be former NFL running back Frank Gore. Gore is the third all-time in NFL rushing yards and is looking to make his boxing debut as well.

There is no telling how this fight will go if it does happen. This will be the debut for both men as they continue their post-professional sports ventures.
