Williams “Punishes Quintana
South Carolina’s own Paul "The Punisher" Williams (34-1, 25 KOs)
recaptured the WBO welterweight title with a first round blistering of
Carlos Quintana (25-2, 19 KOs). Williams dropped Quintana twice and
finally ended Quintana’s reign as champion with strong left hooks.
Referee Eddie Claudio immediately stopped
the fight at 2:15 of the opening round as it was obvious that Quintana
was out on his feet. Williams is glad to be bringing the belt back home.
He called out both Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito as possible next
opponents. Promoter Andrew Stokes traveled to his home state of
Connecticut to support his long time friends Paul Williams and Manager
George Peterson. Paul has previously trained at the Whiterock Boxing
