Goossen: "Paul Williams May Return To 147-Pounds"

According to promoter Dan Goossen, Paul "The Punisher" Williams may be returning to the welterweight division for a while. Last Saturday in Atlantic City, Williams was knocked out in two rounds by WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez. Since 2008, Williams has been taking fights at 154 and 160-pounds. Williams' height of 6'3, and 81-inch reach, made it very difficult to land fights at welterweight. He moved up to find bigger game. Goossen plans to speak with Williams, and managers George Peterson and Al Haymon, about another welterweight run.

"In the future, we'll be looking to avenge any loss. The last time Paul lost, he took an immediate rematch and turned the tables around. I'd like to talk to Paul, George and Al about getting back into that 147-pound division and trying to stay there for a while," Goossen said. 

Martinez's promoter, Lou DiBella agrees with Goossen. He spoke with Williams and advised him to move down to 147 or 154.

"I gave Paul my two cents, that he's not a middleweight. He's the best welterweight in the world and he may very well be the best junior middleweight, as long as Sergio stays away from that division," DiBella said.

with his height, reach, and low drawing power, he will be avoided again & left with no one to fight at 147 then will move up out of frustration. :boxing:

[QUOTE=fastblack]Williams won't ever recover from the hit the punch that probably destroyed his meaningless career. No fans come to see williams fight he comes across as extremely dumb "you know what I'm sayan" fifty times every interview. A hit like he took ends careers ask the overrated hatton....

If he does come down to 147, it will be a lot easier to get fights than before. Look forward to Paquiao vs Williams sometime in 2012.
