I don’t know WHAT the hell I just witnessed.Paul Williams, who many declared to be the best kept secret in the welterweight division just got his ass beat by Carlos Quintana by unanimous decision. Yes, the same Carlos Quintana that got destroyed by Miguel Cotto in 5 rounds last summer. I had Paul listed as #2 on my top 10 welterweights in the world list, thats all out of the window now. The most mind boggling thing about this, is Paul looked like a stranger tonight. You know the guy who throws 100 punches a round, and flicks the jab out constantly? …. Yeah that guy was nowhere to be seen. Quintana landed more power shots despite being only 5′8, and seemed to dodge or walk right through Williams’ pitter patter shots. The fact that Paul Williams gained 18 pounds overnight MAY have something to do with him not throwing many punches. Williams weighed in at 146 on Friday night, but weighed 164 tonight. I give Quintana all the credit in the world for fighting a great fight, but it was apparent from the first 2 minutes that Paul was not the same Paul. I wonder who Quintana gets to fight now.
