Jeremy Williams (born August 19, 1972, Fort Dodge, Iowamarker) is a professional boxer and mixed martial artist.

Amateur career

As an amateur, he was the 1989 and 1990 United Statesmarker amateur Light Heavyweight champion and the 1990 and 1991 National Golden Gloves Light Heavyweight champion, and is a member of the Golden Gloves hall of fame.He was a bronze medalist in the 1990 Goodwill Games in the 81 kg division.

His record was 168-4. He lost his temper when he dropped decisions to Montell Griffin in the Olympic qualifiers 1992.

Professional Boxing Career

Williams won the WBC Continental Americas Heavyweight Title twice. He is known as a knockout artist, with two of his 35 knockouts coming before 30 seconds of the first round -- he KO'd Arthur Weathers in 10 seconds on March 19, 1996 (the fastest KO in Californiamarker boxing history) and KO'd Louis Monaco 28 seconds into their second meeting on March 17, 2002 (Williams had knocked Monaco out in 3 rounds 6 years earlier).

Williams always seemed to be on the cusp of attaining greatness, but his only challenge was for the WBO title.

While on the rise as a young pro, Williams lost his first fight via majority decision to Larry Donald. After the loss to Donald, Williams reeled off another streak of knockouts, only to get KO'd by Henry Akinwande for the WBO Heavyweight Title. Williams again began a new streak of KO victories but in fighting for the lightly regarded IBC heavyweight crown Williams lost by TKO to Denmark's Brian Nielsen. After another streak of knockouts he again was defeated this time by decision by perennial spoiler Maurice Harris. In 2003 he upset heavyweight prospect Andre Purlette by decision. Williams also competed Cedric Kushner's Thunderbox Heavyweight Tournament, "Fistful of Dollars", but lost on a 3 round decision that doesn't count on his record.

Williams last run towards a heavyweight title shot ended when he went up against power punching Sam Peter, who ended Williams night, and his heavyweight boxing career, quickly with a vicious KO in the second round.

In 2007 Williams re-entered boxing as a cruiserweight and won his first fight by split decision over Gary Gomez. Next he is fighting unbeaten cruiserweight prospect Matt Godfrey {16-0 9 KOs}.

MMA career

Williams announced his intentions to begin fighting in MMA bouts [322991]. His initial fight was nixed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission [322992]. He currently holds a Mixed Martial Arts record of 5-0, with wins over Auggie Padeken (TKO), Charles Jones (TKO — punches), Ron Fields (Submission — Strikes), Derek Thornton (Submission — Guillotine Choke), and Charles Jone (TKO-punches).

Television career

In 2004, he assisted the reality tv show The Contender as a trainer for the West Coast Team. In 2006, he again appeared on the show, Contender Season 2, as a trainer. In the 2009 show Bully Beatdown, hosted by fellow Mixed Martial Arts fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller, Williams helps train the bully for his fight against the pro fighter.
