Paul Williams returns to the ring for 1st time since being brutalized by Sergio Martinez…

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.

Paul Williams “The Punisher”…

P. Williams is truly a freak of nature at 6’2″ in the welterweight division. He bobs and weaves like he’s 6 inches shorter and has an exciting style, throwing non-stop all 12 rounds of many fights I’ve seen. He has knockout power and lands with excellent accuracy. In my opinion if anyone can beat Floyd, it will be the Punisher. He has all the ingredients: taller, reach advantage, southpaw, good chin and power. Definately in my top 3 as far as active boxers go. He’s taking on Puerto Rican Carlos Quintana Saturday night on HBO Boxing After Dark. Andre Berto is also on the undercard. Should be an exciting night of free boxing.

Mayweather vs. De La Hoya II…

delahoya-mayweat-5may0711_hornewer.jpg 

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who absolutely does not want to see the rematch of the most over-hyped fight of recent memory. How are they gonna promote the second bout when the first one was worse than disappointing? I’m predicting the PPV numbers will be less than half of what the Cinco De Mayo fight were. Shame on whoever is responsible for not getting a Miguel Cotto or Paul Williams date for Floyd Mayweather. Two fights that would be worth the hype and would actually be competitive.

On a side note, click the pic to see what IFL members had to say about Floyd making a possible transition to MMA haha…
