I’m not gonna lie. When I saw Paul Williams hit the deck after Martinez caught him with that monster overhand left, I wasn’t sure he’d ever be the same. It brought me back to when Antonio Tarver basically ended Roy Jones’ career back in 2004. It’s not easy for a boxer to recover from such a devastating knockout. Especially someone like Williams. He makes his living off of fearlessly pressuring his opponents. Now he knows he’s vulnerable to the big shot. Makes me wonder if he finally took the time in camp to work on using his height and reach to his advantage defensively speaking. I hope so. It pains me to think that a fighter with all the physical assets in the world would want to continue slugging it out with fighters when he has the tools to meticulously pick them apart. Tomorrow night boxing fans will learn a lot about what the future holds for Paul Williams when he takes on the undefeated Erislandy Lara on HBO.
