  • I really hate Paul Williams.......he will be top 5 p4p, but I hate him sooooooo much. He's just a freak.

      didnt miss much......typical paul williams.....maybe he showed some improved head movement, thats about it tho. Same style: high work rate, no huge power. Paul Williams is what he is imo......I dont see him changing much. Not that it matters becaus he is a nightmare for anyone........

      • Yeah, I agree...Paul is what he is but, he's still a joy to watch.

          He'd be more fun to watch if he could get good fights. I hate that fighers aviod Williams because he's a bad match-up for them.

            meh......why would fighters take a fight they will probably lose for almost no money? Paul williams isnt a big draw, at all........cant hate on a guy for trying to make as much money as possible. A boxing career is fleeting. If Paul Williams actually was a draw: I could see your argument, but no top notch fighter that is actually a draw will fight williams, as well they shouldnt at this point.

              I think that Williams could be very popular and a huge draw if he was given the chance to to compete in big fights. That's how most guys get popular is winning big fights. Which Williams never gets the chance to fight in, even though he has earned it.

                I dont disagree with u that he could be popular, but I am saying it makes no sense for a top draw to fight him right now as they will earn less money and will be getting a harder fight. Why take it? If they win only hardcore fans know it was a huge win and if they lose its a major setback in their career and they risk retiring with millions less (one mega fight can make all the difference). He had his chance.....after the win vs. Margo (which was a pretty big fight) it was all set up for his rise as a main draw. People were getting excited and soon the public outcry was going to be enough to force guys to fight him, then he had what was supposed to be a tune up vs Quintana and he lost clearly and lost a ton of momentum. Granted he destroyed him in the rematch, still tho.......if he can keep winning people will have to fight him, but until the public demands it strongly enough: its not going to happen and rightfully so. Modern sport, especially boxing, works on money: One thing PBF does have right is the saying: If it makes dollars, it makes sense.......a fight with Williams doesnt make either right now.

                And also, you say most guys get popular by winning by winning big fights, which is only somewhat true. Its 50% substance, 50% hype. You have to deliver on the hype, but nobody knows who williams is. I bet you Victor Ortiz sells more than P-Dub right now just because Golden Boy has hyped him up. Same with all the huge prospects that have been on PPV undercards all the way up. They make the money, they are the draw, so big names will fight them. Then if they win that big fight a superstar is born. P-Dub doesnt make the money and isnt a huge draw, so its going to be way tougher for him to get a big fight.....as it should be

                • juan manuel marquez vs floyd mayweather

                  not 100% official though

                  july 18

                  marquez #2 p4p vs former #1 p4p

                  but marquez is much smaller (fights at 135)

                  hope this is just a warm-up fight for floyd (hasnt fought in 1.5 yrs) and he fights mosley, cotto, or pac-man

                      Me 2. I want Mayweather to fight Williams though but that will never happen. I heart me some FMJr :)

                      <TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
                      <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                      <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                        You think Pac-Man has this fight in the bag vs. Hatton? I like to think so but Hatton always scares me for some reason, I just can't count him out of it.

                            I wouldn't say it is in the bag per se. I see it going the distance or a late round TKO for PAc. Something just doesn't click for Pac vs. Hatton, but thats just me.

                            • its not in the bag, but i would make him the heavy favorite. The size will always be a concern for me with Pac man tho whenever he is above 135.

                              • I will be surprised if Hatton could pull this one off. The weight is much more optimal for Ricky but, I just dont see him taking it at all.
