Phillips, Williams meet tonight in jr middleweight title fight!

Tonight from the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California, Verno Phillips and Paul Williams will meet in a twelve round jr middleweight contest. Phillips has lost to the likes of Kasim Ouma and Ike Quartey, but he currently holds a world title and is 3X world champion. Phillips was last seen in the ring dethroning Cory Spinks for the IBF jr middleweight championship. Williams biggest win to this date is still his unanimous decision conquest of Antonio Margarito for the WBO welterweight championship July of last year. Williams would lose his title by a close unanimous decision in his first defense to Carlos Quintana, but rebounded well in a return match against Quintana by regaining his title with a devastating first round knockout. In his last fight in September, Williams moved up to middleweight and stopped an overmatched Andy Kolle in two rounds. On the undercard, heavyweights Cristabol Arreola and Travis Walker meet in a 12 round IBF elminator.
