Paul Williams: Iím gonna try and break his ribs, his jaw
ďThis fight with me and (Kermit) Cintron will be a real classic fight. I respect Cintron as a man, but when we get in that ring on Saturday night Iím gonna try my best to hurt him Ďcause I know heís gonna try and hurt me. Iím gonna hit him with everything I got and heís gonna have to fight me with everything heís got because Iím gonna be on him. "
ďItís real close to the fight. I donít want to talk to no one. I just want to do my thing and get ready for Saturday night. Itís gonna be a war and Iím preparing myself for a war. In my mind Iím gonna have no sympathy for him in the ring. After the fight is over, okay, I hope heíll be all right.
I wish him all the luck but, come Saturday night when itís time to get in that ring Iím gonna try and break his ribs, his jaw and Iím gonna try and kill him to death. Thatís how I really feel.
All the time I spent in training camp away from my family and my friends, itís in my mind Iím gonna go get him, hands down. And Iím not gonna say no more.
If you want some action, come on out to the Home Depot Center on Saturday night!Ē
