Williams (23-0-1, 14 KOs) utilized a steady diet of combos, jabs and body shots in the middle rounds to weaken Matano and set up the big shots to close the show in the seventh.
Williams landed 59 percent of his power shots, including a staggering 76 percent in the deciding seventh.[slideshow_deploy id=’58995′]
