PBC Countdown: Julian Williams vs Jeison Rosario

Premier Boxing Champions takes us behind the scenes of Williams title defense on Jan. 18.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

With unified junior middleweight champion Julian Williams set to defend his titles against challenger Jeison Rosario next weekend, PBC releases a promotional video that takes up behind the scenes of both fighters as they’re preparing for their fight.

The feature starts off with some brief backstory on Williams’ upbringing in Philadelphia, including a little commentary from his two trainers, including Stephen Edwards, about how they like to run their training camps.

Shortly after we visit Rosario’s camp out of 5th Street Gym in Miami. Rosario talks a bit about how he got into boxing in the Dominican Republic, before eventually leaving his family behind to train and focus on the task at hand in the boxing business.

Not long after we get a glimpse of both fighters outside of the gym. Rosario is largely confined to a training house he’s allowed to stay at under strict rules, while Williams talks about getting into real estate to provide for his family after boxing.

Check out the full video feature above.
