By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised that former junior middleweight interm champion Nobuhiro Ishida (23-6-2) and former title challenger Deandre Latimore (22-3) are under serious consideration to face former champion Paul Williams on July 9th. The fight will be Williams first since his 2nd round TKO loss to Sergio Martinez this past November.

Ishida was a virtual unknown to U.S. fans until his 1st knockout of the heavily favored James Kirkland on April 9th. Isjida dropped Kirkland three times in the first round in route to the victory.

In his previous fight, Ishida lost a split decision to Saul Alvarez's lesser known brother Rigoberto Alvarez in his home country of Mexico.

Latimore is the more well known fighter in the United States. His upset knockout victory over Sechew Powell in June of 2008 on ESPN Friday Night Fights propelled him to a title shot versus former two division champion Cory Spinks.

Latimore came close to capturing the championship strap when he dropped Spinks in the 1st round of their title fight. Spinks ultimately captured the vacant IBF belt when he narrowly won a split decision in a bout that was broadcast by Showtime.

I love how people think Ishida would be a legit opponent. I love Kirkland but that loss was about him having major issues not Ishida being this knockout artist. PW would crush him and it wouldn't be close. Now Latimore would be a solid fight worthy of a BAD. I'll watch either way just to see ...

LOL... I have nothing but respect for Paul but imagine if Ishida waxed him like he did Kirkland. Actually the possibility of it happening has already piqued my interest in this fight :lol1:

P-Will will beat both of these guys so to me it doesn't matter which one is chosen can't wait to see the Punisher in action again
