n December 9, the historic Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts, will play host to a gripping super welterweight clash. Khiary “Too Sharp” Gray, hailing from Worcester, will lace up his gloves after a two-year hiatus to battle New Haven’s experienced pugilist Jimmy “The Quiet Storm” Williams in a six-round fight that has local fight fans talking. This event, dubbed “Pandemonium at the Palladium 2,” is a creation of Granite Chin Promotions and promises live streaming on for those who can’t witness the action ringside.

Granite Chin Promotions has thrown its weight behind a noble cause, partnering with Project New Hope to back veterans and their families in the Worcester community. As the excitement builds, Chris Traietti, president of the promotion, has his sights set on delivering an exhilarating event, highlighting the draw of Gray’s comeback against the seasoned Williams – a fight that has lingered in the realm of speculation for years until now.

Gray, boasting a 2012 New England Golden Gloves title, is raring to return to the ring with the intention of shaking off any semblance of ring rust through diligent sparring and training. He’s banking on his hometown advantage and the compelling need to re-establish himself as a force in the super welterweight ranks. His sights are set beyond this fight, eyeing a transformative year in 2024 for his career.

Williams, on the other side of the corner, stands as a testament to tenacity. A former collegiate athlete with a trio of titles under his belt, he sees himself as the gatekeeper, the man to beat for rising stars aiming at champions. With the memory of toppling a former world champ fresh in his mind, Williams is no stranger to upsets and tests.

This isn’t the first time Gray is rebooting his career, and he’s well aware of the stakes. He openly admits to selecting Williams for his comeback, a deliberate choice to elevate his standing through a high-risk, high-reward fight. In a sport where risks can either make or break a fighter, Gray is all in, eager to showcase his mettle to his city and silence any doubts about his prowess.

As Gray and Williams gear up to potentially steal the show, the card also features local light heavyweight Kendrick “Peppa” Bell, Jr. and Steve “The Savage” Sumpter, each with their own bouts, adding to the electric atmosphere of the evening. With additional fights and fighters slated to be announced, the anticipation is mounting.
