Though she has just one fight under her belt, Linsey Williams is getting a shot at the Driller Promotions strawweight title when she faces Jessica Fresh on Saturday night.
Fighting out of the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy, Williams, who won her amateur debut in May of 2014, hopes to hand Fresh (4-0) her first defeat. These two undefeated women will scrap in the main event of Mecca 6 at Mystic Lake Casino.
