Born on November 2, 1992 in New Haven, Connecticut, Tramaine Williams was raised by his grandmother, Mary, along with two older sisters and two younger brothers. Williams began boxing at the age of nine, accumulating an impressive record of 97-10 over his amateur career. He was a ten-time national amateur champion, a two-time Ringside World champion and a four-time Silver Gloves champion. He also was a PAL National champion and a junior Golden Gloves champion. At the age of nineteen, Williams decided to turn his attention to the professional game.

 

On April 14, 2012, Williams made his professional debut, scoring a first round technical knockout win over Jesse Anguiano (0-1) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Shortly thereafter on June 16, 2012, Williams fought in front of another large crowd at a high profile venue, knocking out Theo Johnson (0-1) in the third at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas. Less than two months later, utilizing his signature lightning-fast hand speed, he next defeated Jazzma Hougue by way of unanimous decision over four rounds at Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas. Four subsequent four-round unanimous decision victories would follow over the next eight months, followed by a unanimous decision triumph over undefeated Isaac Zarate (5-0) at WinStar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma on June 29, 2013 in his first six round fight.

 

Legal issues in 2013 temporarily halted Williams’s fast track to stardom, but did not knock him out. On May 30, 2015 in front of home-state fans at Danbury Arena in Danbury, Connecticut, Williams made his return to the ring against Josh Bowles (9-1, 1 KO). True to form, Williams knocked Bowles to the canvas in the third round with a devastating left hand, then overwhelmed him in the sixth and final round, causing the referee to stop the fight.

 

In January 2016, Roc Nation Sports announced that Williams had joined its roster of boxers.
