Hot prospect Prichard Colon faces undefeated Terrel Williams on October 17

Prichard Colon has put plenty of opponents to sleep with his neck-swiveling power, but we’re starting to wonder if the man ever actually gets any rest himself.

Unbeaten 140-pound contender Prichard Colon will take a step up in competition when he faces fellow unbeaten prospect Terrel Williams.

A little over a month after hammering former 140-pound champion Vivian Harris into submission for his third KO in a row, fast-rising Prichard Colon (16-0, 13 KOs) will return to the ring October 17 when he faces Los Angeles’ Terrel Williams (14-0, 12 KOs) at EagleBank Arena at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

The 147-pound tilt—which will be Colon's sixth fight in 2015—replaces the previously announced clash between Andre Dirrell and Blake Caparello after Dirrell was forced to withdraw from the bout because of medical reasons.

The card is headlined by former 140-pound champ and local favorite Lamont Peterson (33-3-1, 17 KOs), who takes on undefeated 2008 Olympic gold medalist Felix Diaz (17-0, 8 KOs).

As busy as 2015 has been for Colon, he’s just trying to keep up with the blistering pace he set for himself in 2014, when he fought seven times.

The difference this year, however, is Colon has been steadily stepping up his level of competition. This continues against Williams, whose unblemished record includes an 86 percent knockout rate.

The fights will air on NBC beginning at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT.
