With the Welterweight Division being arguably the most competitive division in boxing, any fight which includes 1 of the 4 champions (IBF, WBC, WBA, WBO) is worth the watch as it affects future fights with guys like Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito, Kermit Cintron, and the every popular yet lack luster P4P best Floyd Mayweather.
Paul Williams fought Miguel Cotto victim Carlos Quintana for Williams' WBO title. From the beginning Quintana had no trouble landing flush left hands with Williams responding with pitty pat jabs. The fight got a little closer in the middle rounds when Williams stepped up the activity. But in the end Quintana had no fear for Williams' punches and continued landing left hands which in turn gave him a UD over Williams to capture the WBO Welterweight title in a shocker.
Now this just proves my point. Why people thought Paul Williams was a danger to Miguel Cotto & Floyd Mayweather because of his long reach beats me. Quintana exposed Williams as to having no snap in his punches being that Quintana is an easy target for the most part. There was nothing that Williams did that would garner him a fight against Cotto or Mayweather let alone fighting Kermit Cintron (which was the fight that was supposed to happen prior to Cintron's injury).
So what does this mean in the big scheme of things? It's one step closer to Cotto vs Mayweather. Quintana's camp obviously doesn't want another beating from Cotto, so pending the April 12th fight between Cotto vs Gomez & undercard Margarito vs Cintron, Cotto's stock will be rising enough for the general public to start asking, "What about Cotto vs Mayweather?" The time is getting near.
