Perhaps, though Williams has never been in the ring with a guy that is bigger than him...nor has he ever seen a guy with a height advantage.
If Williams sits down on his shots, he will get battered. If Williams pitter pats, he will get walked down and broken down.
I just do not see that Paul Williams has anything for Kelly Pavlik here.
Paul has fought guys bigger than him, though no where near the talent level of Kelly Pavlik. Paul's first 15 fights, or so, were at middleweight! I have followed Paul for a long time! I met Paul back in 2000 here in D.C. He had a fight and he was training at a gym nearby!
Anywayz... I think Paul would be best serve to come out and let his hands fly! Of course work behind a Jab!
One thing that I have noticed about Pavlik (in the Taylor fight and even in the Zertruche fight) was he had a hard time dealing with activity!
Taylor was successful when he let his hands go and Zertruche had mild success until he was put to sleep standing up. (Literally Standing up, LOL)
I think Paul's style along with his reach advantage would trouble Kelly in the early going but what makes Kelly a great fighter is his ability to keep coming foward and his Punching power.
So at the end of the day I expect a single shot Right Hand to have Williams nodding off!
