Margarito-Williams Bout Sheet, Weights & Weigh-In Photo

paul williams13.07.07 - Photo: Jan Sanders/Goossen Tutor Promotions - In what amounts to a pick ’em fight, WBO welterweight champion Antonio Margarito will defend against unbeaten, No. 1 ranked Paul Williams tomorrow, Saturday, July 14, at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

The scheduled 12-round bout between Margarito (34-4, 1 NC, 24 KOs) and Williams (32-0, 24 KOs) is the main event of a terrific fight card Saturday presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions.

“The winner of this fight is the preeminent welterweight in the world -- and that includes (Miguel) Cotto or anyone else in the 147-pound division,’’ the event’s promoter, Dan Goossen, said.

Aptly billed as “Pride ‘N Punishment,” a program that will start at 5:30 p.m. PT will include bouts featuring undefeated heavyweight Cristobal Arreola (20-0, 18 KOs) and unbeaten super middleweight and 2004 U.S. Olympic Games Gold Medalist Andre Ward (12-0, 7 KOs). Arreola will take on Derek Berry (12-8-1, 5 KOs) while Ward meets Francisco Diaz (16-1, 8 KOs).

The WBO world title fight will start at approximately 7:45 p.m. PT and doors to the stadium will open at 5 p.m.

Tickets are available for as low as $25, with VIP floor seats priced at $300. Other tickets in the bowl are priced at $50, $75 and $150 and are on sale at TicketMaster outlets and online at www.Ticketmaster.com, as well as The Home Depot Center Box Office (open Saturday at 10 a.m.). Group tickets are available online at www.aegtickets.com or by calling 1-877-AEG-TICKETS.
