Paul Williams: Pacquiao dismisses ‘The Punisher’ again; Paul tells us why he’d beat the pound-for-pound king
By Peter Wells: Paul Williams feels once again left in the dark, forgotten by his fellow fighters and left to wonder what would have happened if he were preparing to fighter one of the top fighters on the planet. Williams quiet demeanor has maybe left him out of the boxing spotlight, also his lone defeat to Carlos Quintana lost him a fair few fans. But still maybe it’s him fierce figure at 6ft 1in and fighting all the way at Middleweight that has put off the Welterweight division.
He’s mainly targeting Manny Pacquiao who once again dismissed Williams instead fighting one of Williams’ most famous victims Antonio Margarito. First of all this is as pointless as Pacquiao-Cotto 2, it’s a washed up Margarito who is still struggling to get his license back in Nevada after being found guilty of loading his gloves before his fight with Shane Mosley. We don’t know for sure how many times he’s been using this plaster in his gloves but it is a huge conspiracy. Margarito hasn’t got his lucky plaster with him now and don’t expect much of a contest there especially at 150 where Antonio will be weight drained and use that as his excuse after the fight.
So I fully understand why Paul is so angry about this, how can a guy you beat suddenly be fighting the best fighter on the planet after breaking boxing rules and losing his last major fight against Shane Mosley. While Williams is left looking around for a new opponent; and may have to settle with a rematch against Sergio Martinez whom he beat on a majority decision last year.
Williams believes that he would end Pacquiao early.
His trainer and manager George Peterson was disgraced by Pacquiao’s last challenger, Joshua Clottey.
The Peterson criticized Bob Arum, Manny’s promoter of protecting his fighters by only fighting those who he also promotes.
Williams’ feels putting Pacquiao in with fighters that real fans know are worthless those who aren’t hardcore fans won’t understand they are being robbed. Arum builds up his fights to make it look like a great matchup but in fact it’s just a waste of time.
So Williams has a fair point, fighters or promoters can’t fool the fans by putting them in with opponents that we all know are already beaten. Mentally Pacquiao has already beat Margarito and if it’s PPV, don’t buy it, I know I won’t this fight only deserves to be watched online. Until we get Pacquiao in with either Mayweather on another fighter that actually has a chance there’s no point in wasting money or time.
