Paul Williams: I Brought The Fight To Lara, While He Ran

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Paul Williams doesn't understand the repeated comments regarding junior middleweight Erislandy Lara being robbed in their July fight. Williams (40-2, 27KOs) won a close twelve round majority decision over Lara (15-1, 10KOs), with many believing the Cuban fighter had done enough to win the fight. The scores were 114-114, 116-114 and 115-114. Williams returns on February 18th against upset king Nobuhiro Ishida (24-6-2, 9KOs) of Japan. Lara fights a week earlier on February 11th against Ronald Hearns.

"Of course I beat Lara. Watch the fight again. I threw more punches, and landed more punches. What all of a sudden they don’t count body shots no more? He may have landed the clean “ohhh-wee” shots but I brought the fight to him the whole fight while he ran. I may have not got the “ohhh-wee” shots but I landed more shots, and threw more punches. I was busier," Williams told boxingtalk.com.

If both of them come through in February, Williams has no problem doing a rematch.

“There are always going to be close calls, close fights. I like when people talk bad about me because they motivate me. I have to take the good with the bad. Every day will not be a good day. I had an off night my last few fights, but the fight with Lara I pulled it off to get the win. If my manager and my team choose that fight for me, then of course I want to get back in the ring with him," Williams said.

Williams is just as Delusional as his Trainer. I will agree it was a close fight but Williams did enough for a Draw at Most. Lara, who looked like Kid next to Paul, was landing those "OH WEE" shots so…
