Colon-Williams replaces Dirrell-Caparello

Andre Dirrell has been forced to withdraw from his bout against Blake Caparello due to medical reasons. The fight was scheduled to take place on October 17th on PBC on NBC on the Peterson-Diaz Jr undercard. The fight is being replaced by rising prospect Prichard Colon (16-0, 13 KOs) who will be taking another undefeated rising prospect in Terrel Williams (14-0, 12 KOs).

As an amateur, Colon was a five-time Puerto Rican national champion prior to turning pro in 2013. Trained by his father, Colon has been stylistically compared to fellow countryman Felix Trinidad, with all but one of his knockouts coming in five rounds or less.

An undefeated fighter out of Los Angeles, Williams looks to make his mark when he faces Colon on October 17. The hard puncher has already picked up two victories in 2015 with a stoppage of Tavorus Teague and most recently, a decision over John Williams in August.
