Rock, a rising heavyweight who has won all 13 of his pro bouts, will fight Steven Lyons on February 8 on a boxing card at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. Rock will fight for the first time since last October when he stopped Julio Rodriguez in the fourth round of their fight. 

Later in the month, Williams, an undefeated featherweight, will fight for the first time since March 2018. Williams will fight on February 23 at the Genetti Manor in Scranton, Pennsylvania against an opponent to be named later in a six-round bout. 

Lastly, Younan, an undefeated light heavyweight prospect, will fight on the March 9 Matchroom Boxing card at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York. His opponent has yet to be named, but it is said to be an eight-round fight. Younan fought on the February 2, 2018 ShoBox card, fighting Ronald Ellis to a draw in the main event.

The card, which will be streamed on DAZN, is set to feature two world title fights: Maurice Hooker vs. Mikkel LesPierre for the WBO junior welterweight title and Dmitry Bivol vs. Joe Smith Jr. for the WBA light heavyweight title.
