Joachim Alcine Eyes Paul Williams Showdown For June

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised that former junior middleweight champion Joachim Alcine (33-2-1, 19KOs) is interested in facing Paul Williams (41-2, 27KOs) in his next fight.

Williams is rumored to have a June 30th Showtime date reserved up and was looking to face James Kirkland before  Kirkland had surgery on his shoulder that was injured in his disqualification victory over Carlos Molina on March 24th.

As BoxingScene earlier reported, negotiations are ongoing to match Alcine against unbeaten prospect Kevin Bizier on the Tavoris Cloud versus Jean Pascal undercard. Alcine is willing to face Williams at any weight between 147 and 160.

[QUOTE=Check;11987374]This is a huge step back for Williams. Alcine hasn't done anything of importance in what, 5 or 6 years.[/QUOTE] Not a step down from Ishida. And Alcine has never really done much anyway, but he did look pretty good…

This is a huge step back for Williams. Alcine hasn't done anything of importance in what, 5 or 6 years.
