Emanuel Steward had Paul Williams winning the 1st round against Sergio Martinez

Martinez Williams Martinez vs. Williams  sergio martinez paul williams Photo Naoki Fukuda: By Dan Ambrose: I don’t know if anyone was paying attention last night to HBO analyst Emanuel Steward in his commentating for the WBC title fight between World Boxing Council middleweight champion Sergio Martinez and challenger Paul Williams, but I was shocked to hear Steward say that he thought Williams had won the first round of the fight. This after Martinez had really lit Williams up with left hands for almost the entire round. It was even remotely close. Read the rest of this entry »



Look for Pacquiao to avoid Sergio Martinez and fight Mosley instead

Pacquiao Mosley Pacquiao vs. Mosley Martinez Williams Martinez vs. Williams  shane mosley sergio martinez manny pacquiao Photo Naoki Fukuda: By Dave Lahr: Last night, we saw pure brilliance from World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (46-2-2, 25 KO’s) successfully defended his title with a 2nd round KO of Paul Williams (39-2, 27 KO’s) in front of a packed Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City New Jersey. Martinez turned what was supposed to have been a closely contested fight into a wipeout when he brained Williams with a tremendous left hand that left Williams old cold and face down on the canvas in the 2nd round.

The win cemented Martinez’s claim to be the best in the middleweight division. Martinez has only been fighting at middleweight since April, when he defeated WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik by a 12 round decision.

At the time of Martinez’s victory, Pavlik was considered to be the best in the middleweight division. Before that fight, Martinez was already considered to be the top dog in the junior middleweight division, where he held the WBC title. After beating Pavlik, Martinez was forced to decide whether to keep the junior middleweight or the middleweight straps. Martinez opted to hold onto the middleweight titles. However, he’s still quite capable of moving back down to junior middleweight to fight someone like WBC junior middleweight champion Manny Pacquiao. Read the rest of this entry »

Paul “The Punished” Williams: Ready for Pacquiao or Mayweather

Williams vs. Pacquiao Williams vs. Martinez Wiliams Martinez  paul williams manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Rasheed Catapang: Be careful what you wished for…

Paul Williams dreamt of mixing it up with Pacquiao or Mayweather for a career high payday and had a plan of how to carry it through. He’d asserted himself to the pound for pound throne and made his case, leaving it in the end to the people to call upon such a fight being made. Boxing’s top two would not have heed the call anyway on their own accord even with their talents due to William’s freakish built, a welterweight with the height and reach of a heavyweight.
