Rockaway’s Joseph “Mack” Williams, is ready to make his professional boxing debut at Resorts World Casino. After years of hard work and dedication, blood, sweat and tears our own Joseph “Mack” Williams will no longer be known as one of the best, if not the greatest, amateur boxers to come out of Far Rockaway.

Williams is taking the next step in his journey and will now make his professional debut.

The fight will take place Monday, September 16th, at the Resorts World Casino at Aqueduct.

The fight will begin at 7 p.m.

Resorts World Casino is located at 110-00 Rockaway Boulevard, South Ozone Park, Queens.

‘Mack’ completed an illustrious amateur career, capturing three New York City Heavyweight Golden Glove Championships. He was also considered an alternate for the 2012 Olympic team.

Willams represents some of the best that Far Rockaway has to offer.

We wish him the best in his quest to bring a heavyweight title back home.
