New Haven boxer Jimmy Williams won a WBC title belt earlier this year, and he’s going to defend it on August 26th at Foxwoods. Sure, there's another - considerably bigger - taking place that same night. But Williams, who recently lost his mother, is dedicating this match to little Ben Callahan, the 10-year-old who drowned in Branford earlier this summer. He will walk out with Ben's brothers, Cooper and Scout.
Williams makes his debut on The Project on Wednesday, while The Project will be LIVE from the Parthenon Diner in Branford Friday morning, with 10 % of every meal going to bencallahan.org
