Joshua Clottey Wants Paul Williams on November 29

In response to my earlier news brief regarding WBO welterweight champion Paul Williams, BoxingScene.com was contacted by Vincent Scolpino, manager of IBF welterweight champ Joshua Clottey. Scolpino tells BoxingScene that Clottey is more than willing to fight Williams in a unification bout on November 29 on HBO. At the moment, Williams is without an opponent. 

Williams recently fought at 160, easily stopping Andy Kolle in one-round, but told BoxingScene in the aftermath that he plans to return to 147 to clean the division up.

"We're going back to 147. I want to clean up 47. They are saying that Margarito is the man at 47, so hopefully I can get my fans and the networks to push him out so I can get a fight with him. After November 29th when I defend my belt, I'll probably go to 54. Try to clear up 54, the go back down 147, then go back up to 60. We're going to jump through all the weight classes," Williams said.

Scolpino says that if Williams needs an opponent for the November date, all he has to do is have his promoter Dan Goossen contact Top Rank.

"Tell Williams to tell his promoter we want to get it on for November 29th. We will put our title up and take his on that night. All he has to do is to call our promoter Bob Arum and make it happen," Scolpino said.

Williams does owe a mandatory defense against Michael Jennings, but under the rules of most sanctioning bodies, a champion can take part in a unification bout before his mandatory obligation.

P-dub will take his belt. Clottey has heart so I def. commend him for taking the challenge but he won't be beating the Punisher. PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE make this fight happen.

[QUOTE=joseph5620]Yeah, a lot of people here are ducking that question as if it never happened.[/QUOTE] Arum is a smart promoter. He will take a press hit to protect his fighters, i.e. Margs not wanting to fight Pwill. But there are too many good, named WW fighters looking for title shots fo...

[QUOTE=xAUGUSTUSx]Margarito's fighting in January.[/QUOTE] That remains to be seen. There is no opponent.
