The Punisher punishes Wright the Wright way!

Paul Williams W12 Winky Wright... They say defense wins championships in Superbowls, but it was the offense and overwhelming work rate of Paul Williams that caused former super welterweight champion Winky Wright so much trouble on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, NV. Williams threw practically every punch in the book over the course of twelve rounds, winning a lopsided unanimous decision over the former champion. Official scores were 119-109 (2X) and 120-108 all in favor of Williams. scored the fight 118-110 for Williams, giving Wright rounds 5 and 6. Williams has an unbelievable work rate; he never even showed signs of slowing down at any point in the fight. Gunshy does not go in the same sentence as the name Paul Williams. Williams would love to go back down 147lbs and fight welterweight champion Shane Mosley, but if that doesn't happen middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik should be mandated to face Williams, but I highly doubt Pavlik's promoter Bob Arum would ever allow that to happen. Last night's performance by Williams could not have possibly done anything to change Arum's mind.

Chris Arreola KO4 Jameel McCline... Undefeated heavyweight contender Chris Arreola may have delivered one of the best performances of his young career to date, as he dominated Jameel McCline for the most part with good body work and right hands in the first three rounds and stopped him with a right hand in the fourth round. Arreola blasted McCline with a beautiful left uppercut, followed by two right hands that put McCline down for the count. Nice showing by Arreola, who maintains that he is ready for the Klitschko brothers. I liked the body work, the right hands, and the left uppercut that set up the knockout. Hopefully Arreola can lose some of that excess weight.
