Salvador, the only reason you think Paul Williams is the shit is cus he beat the crap out of your boy, Margarito.
Seriously though I think Margarito and Williams are overrated. THe truth about Margarito is he's stepped up about 3 times. Against Santos, Clottey, and Williams.
I consider the Cintron win average becasuse frankly I dont think much of Cintron. He will get his ass kicked when he steps up and fights the best.
Based on Margarito's fights with the 3 names mentioned above, I don't think he dominates Mosley. I mean, he held is own against all three guys. The Santos was really close..and won about 4 rounds against Williams.
Margarito looks like a monster against Golden shot Johnson and Manuel SHOTgun Gomez..guys who were KOed about 10 years ago at 135 by Mosley. But if the guy fights a Mayweather, he will seriously look very average.
Mosley is 36, but he showed alot of toughness against Cotto, who I think is more skilled and more of an offensive beast then Margarito is.
I seriously doubt Margairto dominates Mosley. It will probably be a close fight.
George, sweetheart, NOBODY'S ever "beaten the crap out of Margarito"!
And though we've gon over this to death, Marg was coming on strong against the 175 pound Santos, he wore Clottey out (who I think weighs around 170 in the ring), and he got outworked by a guy with 82" arms who threw over 1500 punches in 12 rounds. Put Margarito in with the smaller wws and it's an entirely different story. His game is to outphysical the next guy and that only works when you're the bigger and stronger man, like he would be against Mosley.
The reason I think so highly of Williams is strictly due to his size and his workrate. And what the Margarito fight taught us is that not only does PW have these incredible physical advantages, but he also has a hell of a chin and can take a hell of a good shot to the body. Skillwise, PW is a B+, but with that reach, the 100+ punches a round, and that chin, nobody at ww is going to beat him unless they knock him out, and Mosley ain't got that kind of power.
And I'm not at all sure that Marg beats Mosley, but I am sure that the fading, 36 year old, battle-worn Mosley would take a lot of heavy right hands and I just don't want to see the guy get hurt. He's earned a pass on a rough fight like the fight with Tony would be.
And Margarito might look average against Floyd because Floyd would be on his toes all night. Shane wouldn't be. Shane would trade with him because that's who Shane is.
I was actually kind of shocked to hear Lampley say in the Marg-Johnson telecast that Mosley, like Floyd, actually turned down $8MM to fight Tony. I think that there's a reason for that and I think that there's a reason that neither Floyd 5'8" nor Cotto 5'7" will EVER get in the ring with Williams.
