More:



In his first fight since being knocked out by a left hand from Sergio Martinez, Paul Williams takes on another slick southpaw in undefeated Erislandy Lara. Proving that he has not recovered from the devastating knockout, Williams eats hard left hands from Lara all night, several of which buckle his knees. A clash of heads in the fifth round opens a cut over Williams' left eye and causes a hematoma above Lara's. In one of the worst decisions in a decade, the judges inexplicably name Williams the winner by a majority decision.

Getting ready to watch what I have heard many times over to be a bad robbery!

rorschach's picture

What a fucking disgrace of a decision that really sidetracked Lara's career.

Champion97's picture

I don't think was quite as bad as decision as some make out, but nonetheless, still wrong. I was surprised by how much bigger Williams looked than Lara, that might have been a factor in Lara tiring quite early, people do underestimate the advantage a bigger fighter has over a smaller opponent, so Lara did very well to out box Williams down the stretch, I thought Williams was out working Lara enough to take control of the fight in rounds 4-6, but from that point on, Lara took control, the rounds were close, negative, but that was the most intelligent way to box for Lara.

Champion97's picture

Lara deserved to win this fight, there is no doubt about that.

This was a one way street Lara won all the way.

The correct score is 109-119 Lara over Williams.

Paul Williams won the 5th round.

This started the avoiding of Lara.

Lara should have gotten a bigger spot light for his class in and out of the ring.

It's not right that they keep pushing novice down fight fans but a talented guy like Erislandy Lara can't catch a break promotionally or get a fair shake with the judges outside the ring.

What an absolutely idiotic decision and a real shame for Lara to have this complete garbage decision on his record. The three """judges""" were rightfully suspended after this fight. Although, unfortunately, it seems at least some are back to judging.
