Paul Williams vs. Sergio Martinez

Paul Williams is a matchup nightmare that spans three weight classes. At 6′1″ he’s tall whether he’s fighting at 147 or 160. The Punisher also throws a high volume of punches. Throw in the southpaw stance and it’s no wonder Williams enters this fight with a record of 37-1 (27 KOs). Paul Williams has only fought once this year, a dominating performance over Winky Wright in April, but that was mostly due to Williams wasting time going after Kelly Pavlik. Williams usually has an enormous reach advantage in his contests and this bout will be no different as he sports a six-inch difference over Martinez.

Sergio Martinez, 44-1-2 (24 KOs), is coming off of a draw against Kermit Cintron but most onlookers believe Martinez won that fight. Prior to that draw, Martinez had rattled off 28 straight wins. Martinez is an interesting matchup for Williams because he too fights from the southpaw position. He’s a veteran with a wealth of experience. Martinez knows the tricks of the trade that someone would need in order to slow Williams down. He’ll need to do something to slow Williams down.
