Is Paul Williams made for Floyd Mayweather?

13.04.09 -By Robert Jackson: After witnessing the dominating performance that The Punisher put on Winky Wright I have to say WHOA. I've also read that Floyd Mayweather Jr and Juan Manuel Marquez are at a impasse regarding weight for their proposed fight. Here's the solution for both men, Floyd strive for greatness Paul Williams will accomodate your 147lb weight request, challenge him, Al Haymon can arrange this. Juan Manuel Marquez accept Edwin Valero's challenge, then you won't have to move up to 147lbs to fight Floyd plus Erik Morales isn't FIT to fight again..

Carlos Quintana who's a 5'9" 147lber was able to beat the Punisher so Floyd with all of his boxing etiquette and skill can do the same. I tend to believe that the 6'4" Punisher has a style that is made for Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd won't be able to knock him out but with Floyd's defensive ability and movement Floyd should be able to outbox Paul Williams for 12 rounds similar to Quintana's feat. If it turns out to be a good fight (it will) Floyd can dare greatness again and give Williams a rematch or NOT. Styles make fights and Paul Williams 'tasmanian devil' style plays into Floyd Mayweather's hands, I say Floyd leave the little guys alone and go for it if you don't you'll wish you did.

Seriously Williams has had the most trouble with guys who use movement, guys who stand 'Wright' in front of him will suffer his punishment. During the first Quintana fight, Carlos constantly circled and stepped out to his own right so he was at angles to Williams range, while there he would land his shots. During the rematch Quintana chose to stand his ground rather than move and paid for it. To be fair to Floyd take a tuneup get your 'sea legs' back because you'll need your 'A' game to take on the punisher but you can beat him. Your Uncle Roger will put together a gameplan for you to defeat the giant. And after you defeat him the silence that you hear coming from your detractors, critics and naysayers will be priceless!
