SHORT INTERVIEW: PAUL WILLIAMS - "I done proved myself"
By Michael Walters
What do you think about Martinez getting a shot at Pavlik after you tried to make the fight two or three times?
PW:I wish him all the best of luck. It's a big fight and he needs to go and do his thing. I can't be mad, if it was me I would be happy for it. May the best man win.
MW: When can we expect to see you in the ring again and who are you going to fight?
PW: It's looking like it's going to be Kermit Cintron on May 8.
MW: What weight are you going to be fighting at, you fought your last two fights at middleweight? Can you still make 147 pounds easily?
PW: If they sign a contract for 147, I can make 147. This fight right here is going to be 154.
MW: If you get past Cintron, who do you want to get in the ring with you or better yet who do you think would be willing to get in the ring with you?
PW: It ain't no if. If it was an fifth, we would be drunk out here. I look at it like, when I get past Cintron, that ain't me being angry or ****y. That's just my confidence level and when I get past Cintron, hopefully we can get one of the big name fighters in there. Maybe the winner of Mayweather/Mosely, Pacquiao or anybody. I just call out names. It's up to my manager, Al, and Dan. I don't think I deserve to fight anyone under my level or somebody up and coming. I done proved myself. You can ask anybody who they want to see fight and they say they want to see Paul fight Mayweather. They want to see Paul fight Pacquiao. They want to see Williams fight Mosely. My name is in the mix.
