HBO Boxing – Sergio Martinez Vs. Paul Williams 2
It’s been eleven months since Paul Williams won a majority decision over Sergio Martinez in what was the best fight of 2009. I had Williams winning the fight by a score of 116-113, but Duan thought it was Martinez’s fight. Living up to their first fight is going to be tough, but really, it should be expected. Both guys have tremendous work rate. And you get that both guys still feel as if they have something to prove.
Sergio Martinez vs. Paul Williams
For whatever reason, the first two minutes of this round were chopped off by my DVR. Of the minute I saw, it was a bit sloppier than the last fight. They were fighting inside though, which I’d expect to favor Martinez.
Again, there was a huge chunk out of the round taken away by my DVR. I expect there was a slight power shortage when I was away. When the DVR came back, I saw Sergio Martinez unleash a haymaker of epic proportions. It was like a power hitter pulling his head to hit a home run. He threw it out of his back pocket and Williams was out when it was hit. He landed right on his face. Amazing knockout.
Winner: Sergio Martinez by way of 2nd round TKO

Hey GG, this was stunning, I don’t know who told Paul to lean over and make himself a short brawler. Paul is taller than Martinez so he should not have been hunting Sergio like he was Mike Tyson or something. Paul forgot he has long arms and should be fighting outside against smaller fighters.
Who should Paul fire and What was he thinking??? I hope Paul learns from this fight and adjusts his mistakes in the ring. Wouldn’t it be funny if Floyd steals Emanuel’s thunder and gets the match with Martinez and wins???
This would force Emanuel to have to take the random Blood testing if he wants a shot at Floyd and the middle weight title. The only one who could get in between it this scenario is if Cotto beat Martinez for the title.
Then my boy Cotto would hold all the cards. Both Floyd or Emanuel would be forced to fight Cotto. I think Floyd better get that fight with Martinez in order to corner Emanuel into taking the Random blood test.
If May won’t fight Pac, there’s no way in hell he fights Martinez.
I think Cotto gets destroyed too, sorry to say. Martinez is just way too active and hits way too hard.
Martinez is good no question. However, Cotto, Mayweather and Emanuel are the biggest pay day fights for the 35 year old Marvel. So, in the end belts only collect dust. It’s all about the MONEY!!! We shall see who’s the best. You know, Paul opened his stupid mouth and said that Floyd wouldn’t fight him because he didn’t have a vigina.
Well, now you know what Floyd’s gonna say “I never said anything about Paul. At least I know this, I never lost to Carlos Quintana and never been knocked the F@#$ out in round 2 by a guy who lost to Margocheato by K.O. Ya’ll got to step your game up.”
Lets see what happens, we all should not be so surprised because Paul has lost to a lefty before so now it’s twice. Paul thought he was Tyson and forgot he looks similar to Tommy Herns. Paul needs to box not brawl if he wants to win against smaller fighters.
The issue isn’t with Martinez taking the big fights. He’s in. It’s whether those other guys want to fight him. Arum has already said that Martinez is too big for Manny.
Paul’s strategy was interesting to say the least.
Never say never when Floyd and Emanuel’s ego is involved. Not to mention the title of being the only feather weight to win the middle weight WBC title in history. I hope Floyd see’s this opportunity. Emanuel can go retire for all I care. He will always be a cheater in my book until proven otherwise.
Floyd/Manny would possibly triple the buyrate of Floyd/Sergio. If Floyd’s ego was at hand, he’d go Manny first.
I truly thing Sergio is too big for either guy. That’s what weight classes or for. It could get brutal.
