Fight Night!

Fight night is here, finally. With Paul Williams' last two fights ending in brutal one round knockouts, it seems like we never get to see PW fight. Tonight's fight should make it through round 1, but then again, crazier things have happened. For the record, I'm predicting Williams by late stoppage.

"As Williams stepped to the scales, I couldn’t help but notice how skinny his legs were, then I noticed how wide his shoulders were and I remembered just how special of an athlete he is. Williams stands 6’1,” and is definitely at top-heavy fighter, which gives him the unique ability to move from welterweight to super middleweight with relative ease.

His opponent, Verno Phillips, looked trim. Phillips is a veteran fighter who is no slouch by any stretch of the imagination, and it was clear that he is coming to fight, although nobody is giving him a chance. One spectator who was standing next to me as I was taking pictures remarked to his friend: “Phillips looks good, too bad he is going to get killed.” As the spectator said that, Phillips jokingly stood up on his toes during the face off so that he could see Williams in his face. The size differential was obvious from the start."
