I'm having a hard time seeing him as some kind of a monster.
Just because he's got incredible size doesn't mean he's some kind of new Tommy Hearns. He doesn't really use his size for one thing, he doesn't always keep distance. He's not bad on the inside but that's not really where he should be.
He seems easy to hit to me. I'm still not sure about his chin although it seems alright so far. It needs to be allright cause he's gonna be hit a lot by guys like Margarito, Cotto, etc.
He can't punch worth a shit. Ok maybe that's an exagerrated statement but he's definitely not a new Hearns in that category. Watching his fight with that Pakau guy, I was amazed at the punches he could take from Williams without going down. He's a guy that stops people late on accumulation of punches just cause he throws so much, I really don't see him as a heavy handed puncher.
And I always question a guy who's been brought along as slowly as Williams. People talk about Margarito not fighting anybody, Williams really hasn't fought anybody. Matthysse was a cashier making some extra money, Sharmba was shot. Terrence Cauthen's the most boring fighter to ever live.
I don't know, I mean there are things to like about him. Obviously the size, he's pretty quick, throws a lot of punches, and seems to like to fight. But I still am not convinced. I definitely don't rate Margarito as high as some people like El Gamo do but I'm favoring him against Williams. I think Williams looks good early, starts to take a beating mid to late and then gets hammered in the 10th round or so.
Obviously I'm not as high on the guy as a lot of people are, even though I like to watch him fight. What do you think about him, even about the Margarito fight.
