Showtime Boxing: Paul Williams vs Nobuhiro IshidaCategory: Boxing
MATCHUP: Paul Williams vs Nobuhiro Ishida
EVENT: Showtime: Williams vs Ishida
DATE: February 18, 2012
VENUE: American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas
FIGHT DETAILS: Williams was once one of the most feared fighters in the world and regularly avoided by his peers, but since his crushing second-round knockout at the hands of Sergio Martinez in 2010, Williams has fought just once, and in winning a highly controversial majority decision over Cuban Erislandy Lara, looked a shadow of his once formidable self.
His opponent on Saturday should offer him little respite – Ishida is a cagey veteran who has some form when it comes to pulling off shock upsets – he knocked out red-hot prospect James Kirkland in one round last year.
American Williams (40 wins – 2 losses, 27 KOs) is the the former two-time WBO welterweight champion. He has defeated world champions such as Winky Wright, Sergio Martínez, Kermit Cintron, Carlos Quintana and Antonio Margarito.
Isida from Japan (24 wins – 6 losses, 9 KOs) is a former interim WBA world super welterweight champion.
FIGHT RESULT: Paul Williams defeats Nobuhiro Ishida by Unanimous Decision. All 3 judges scoring the bout 120 – 108.
