PBC on FS1 - Williams vs Cuello: Live streaming results and round by round coverage

Julian Williams takes on Luciano Cuello in this week's PBC on FS1 main event.

Tonight at 9 pm EST on FS1, Premier Boxing Champions returns with a doubleheader from Bethlehem, Penn., featuring top junior middleweight prospect Julian "J Rock" Williams taking on veteran Luciano Cuello in the 10-round main event.

Williams (20-0-1, 12 KO) is still a prospect at 154, though he is inching toward contender status. The 25-year-old Philly fighter will have a solid but beatable test in Cuello (35-3, 17 KO), a 31-year-old veteran from Argentina, now fighting out of Spain. Cuello's three career losses have come against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Canelo Alvarez, and Willie Nelson, but he's a competent pro and a nice step up for this level of prospect.

In the co-feature, the pointless interim WBA super bantamweight title is on the line between Moises Flores (23-0, 16 KO) of Mexico and Luis Cusolito (21-1, 19 KO) of Argentina. On paper this appears to be a well-matched contest, and like many PBC co-features, gives us a pair of fighters who wouldn't usually be seen on American TV.

Patrick L. Stumberg will be here for the round by round. Join him!
