Paul Williams next opponent for Abraham?

"Though Abraham addressed the adoring masses from the ring after the fight and said he wanted Sturm next, that fight doesn't appear likely any time soon.
It looks like Abraham will make another USA appearance early next year, with possible opponents listed as Winky Wright, Paul Williams, or Vernon Forrest. If all goes well, Abraham is looking for a summer mega-match with Kelly Pavlik after that."

Paul Williams would be Abraham's toughest test to date. While Abraham is very impressive, having great power and good quickness in spurts, he has never fought a talent like PW. Not only would that be a huge matchup for Abraham, a win for Paul Williams put rank him in the top 3 in three weight divisions, 147, 154 and 160. (assuming PW beats Phillips at 154.) Abraham should think twice before fighting PW, the last time Williams was scheduled as a preparation fight for a mega-fight, Williams shocked the world and foiled the champions plans. (Margarito, looking for a mega-clash against Cotto.)
