This time, it took Jeremy Williams longer than 10 seconds. But not much longer. Williams (26-1, 23 knockouts) scored a TKO victory over Vince Boulware (29-9-1, 19 knockouts) Tuesday night when referee Jay Nady stopped their scheduled 10-round main event 33 seconds into the second round at Arizona Charlie's Hotel and Casino. Williams, a Long Beach heavyweight, had scored the fastest knockout in state history in his last bout, stopping Arthur Weathers in 10 seconds.

Cold winter winds blow up from the Hudson River. They sift around 10-year-old memories and echoes of a young heavyweight, on his way to being a champion. When Mike Tyson came to this village as a 14-year-old in 1980, not many Catskill citizens paid much attention when they saw him doing early-morning roadwork along gravel roads. Just another street urchin Cus D'Amato had imported from New York. Turning pro in 1984, Tyson's career took off.

Some say Jeremy Williams is on his way to becoming world heavyweight champion. Sometimes, Williams is among them. Sometimes, he is not. About the only certainty surrounding Williams, 24, an unquestionably talented fighter and remarkable physical specimen, is that he is still fighting. . . . for now. Williams, 29-2 with 25 knockouts, will face Jeff Lally in a 12-round main event for the lightly regarded North American Boxing Organization title tonight at the Reseda Country Club.

Australian heavyweight Justin Fortune made a statement Thursday night, and he hopes highly ranked Jeremy Williams of Long Beach was listening. Fortune took only 1 minute 18 seconds to dispose of an outclassed Craig Brinson of Duarte in front of 1,047 at the Marriott. Fortune (10-2-1), who looked more like a nose guard than a boxer, put down Brinson (3-5-2) seconds into the bout with an overhand right that landed on Brinson's ear.

Heavyweight Jeremy Williams (19-1, 16 knockouts), on the comeback trail after a loss to Larry Donald, seeks his fifth consecutive victory tonight when he fights Everton Davis (9-4, 7 KOs) in a 12-round bout at the Grand Olympic Auditorium. The five-fight card will begin at 7. Williams, of Long Beach, appears to have shaken the affects of his loss to Donald in his 16th fight. He has since changed management teams and has knocked out Andrew Stokes, Bert Cooper, Mark Wills and Levi Billups.

One heavyweight compares himself to Muhammad Ali. The other used to be compared to Mike Tyson. And the winner might find himself fighting Riddick Bowe. In a rare match-up of young, undefeated heavyweights, Larry Donald of Cincinnati and Jeremy Williams of Long Beach will box here today at the MGM Grand. The bout will be televised by ABC--the first network boxing broadcast this year--and is for Williams' World Boxing Council Continental Americas title. But there might be much more at stake.

Jeremy Williams knocked Everton Davis down with a left jab in the first round Friday night and acted like a guy eager to cash his paycheck. "You figure it's going to be an easy night," Williams said. Williams, 22, obviously has a lot to learn on the road back to heavyweight contention.

Tall beat small in the desert steam Saturday night as Henry Akinwande avoided the charging Jeremy Williams for two rounds, then slammed him to the canvas in the third. Groggy, bloody and with a broken left middle finger the only reward for his aggressive efforts, Williams attempted to crawl to his feet as the count reached five and Akinwande towered above him.

Given the opportunity of his career tonight at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, will Jeremy Williams make the cut? Summoned suddenly into the breach after Alexander Zolkin suffered a cut in training and had to bow out of his scheduled World Boxing Organization heavyweight title bout against Henry Akinwande, Williams has had five days to prepare for tonight's moment in the Showtime spotlight.

Trainer Joe Goossen wished his fighter, heavyweight Jeremy Williams, well in Tuesday's main event at the Long Beach Pyramid, picked up his stool and bounced down the four steps to the floor. By the time Goossen turned around to watch the fight, he was too late. It was over. Williams knocked out Arthur Weathers in 10 seconds of the first round. That's 10 seconds from start to finish, from the opening bell to the signal by referee Marty Denkin that the fight was over.
