Did you guys hear about Paul Williams? Sad

Boxer Paul Williams was left paralyzed after a Sunday motorcycle crash near Atlanta, and doctors are unsure whether the 30-year-old will be able to walk again.

Williams' manager told the Associated Press on Monday that Williams severed his spinal cord and that he cannot move from the waist down.

"He's in very good spirits, though," said George Peterson, Williams' trainer. "He still believes he's going to fight again."

Williams crashed while trying to avoid an oncoming car after trying to maneuver away from another car in a lane next to him. Williams, of Aiken, S.C., was in the area to attend his brother's wedding on Sunday afternoon.

Williams' scheduled fight against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Sept. 15 in Las Vegas has been canceled, Peterson said.

“Right now, there's no thinking about any fights right now except for the fight that's facing Paul right now — to get movement back in his body and keep the movement that's above his waist,” said Dan Goossen, Williams' promoter.

The 6-foot-1 Williams (41-2, 27 knockouts) defined himself as an active punching southpaw who could fight anywhere between welterweight and middleweight.

He struggled to get a fight as one of the sport’s most avoided boxers after scoring a unanimous decision over Mexico’s Antonio Margarito in 2007 at Home Depot Center in Carson, then rallying from a surprising loss to Carlos Quintana to knock him out in the first round of their rematch.

Williams, who was a world welterweight and interim world super-welterweight champion, beat current middleweight champion Sergio Martinez by majority decision in 2009.

In their rematch on Nov. 20, 2011, Martinez beat Williams with a second-round knockout.

Peterson hopes Williams' boxing career isn't over.

“I want to think along with him, 'cause I've seen him do things in his boxing career that shouldn't have happened,” Peterson told the Associated Press. “We want his fans to know he's going to be all right and he'll be back,” Peterson said. “He said if he wasn't going to be boxing, he's going to be a standup comedian.”

Awful story, gutted for the guy, he was a role model for all fighters.

Yeah that was really sad, i actually used the news to read up on Tapia in more detail.....

Johnny Tapia's life began with tragedy. His father had reportedly been murdered while his mother was pregnant with him. When he was eight years old, his mother, Virginia, was kidnapped, raped, hanged, repeatedly stabbed, and left for dead by her assailant. Tapia was awakened by her screams and saw her chained to the back of a pickup truck. He tried to alert others in his household, but no one believed him. His mother was later found by the police and taken to the hospital after she had crawled 100 yards to a road. She died four days after the attack without regaining consciousness. Raised thereafter by his grandmother, Tapia turned to boxing at the age of nine.

I think the judges might have had something against Pacman for delaying the fight because he was watching the Celtics game.

I give props to Bradley for saying he will review the tapes to see if he actually won, he should come out and say he didn't win or something. It's a shame if he will be remembered as the guy who robbed Pac, although Arum will make alot more money from the rematch which might have been part of the promotion.

After the Rios Abril robbery, I didn't think it could get any worse but Arum is a stain and a disgrace to the sport he wants to rake the $$$$ in with a trilogy.

It's definitely Arum.

1. Bradley is a Top Rank Fighter.
2. Bradley is fresh, young and undefeated.
3. Manny is in his twilight years and soon to retire.
4. Arum doesn't want to negotiate with Floyd.
5. A rematch would make him more money.

IMO he got his new Cash Cow in Timothy Bradley and he thinks it's time for him to replace Manny.

holy shyt, I watched the fight, turned it right off after the last round figuring it was a foregone conclusion Manny won and he gets fked over... lol wow. As a Money fan I lol'd, but as a boxing fan it's pretty sad(and we won't be seeing Mayweather/Pacquiao at all now most likely).

This has Arum written all over it

I dont see anyway Brad can win, dont think he has the punching power to stop him and if Marquez is anything to go by..your not actually alllowed to beat Pacman on points.

BTW, did you see the Dwyer video on Floyd? How he might retire?

It was more about possible fights for Floyd and those who would be very hard for him.

All of those, intrest me more than a fight with Pacman..especially if Pacman doesnt look good again on June 5th.
