Former Heavyweight Contender and Queens’ own Carl “The Truth” Williams Passes Away
The New York State Athletic Commission would like to pass along its condolences to the family of Carl “The Truth” Williams on his passing this past April 7 in Valhalla, NY. Williams, who was born in Belle Glade, Florida but grew up in Queens, New York, won two New York Golden Gloves championships as an amateur. Upon turning pro, he became a USBA Heavyweight Champion and built a reputation for climbing into the ring with the best heavyweights of his era, including Larry Holmes and Mike Tyson.
