Williams Wins After Cintron Wipes Out

Fighting in the shadow of Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s brilliant domination of Shane Mosley, Paul Williams had a major opportunity to establish himself as the biggest threat to Mayweather barring a showdown with Manny Pacquiao later this year. Unfortunately for Williams, his fight with Kermit Cintron Saturday night at the Home Depot Center was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Rather than score an impressive win, Williams appeared to sleepwalk through the rounds before a tangling of the boxers' bodies resulted in Cintron spilling through the ropes and all the way down to the floor. Injuring himself in the fall, Cintron was unable to return to the ring, and Williams was lucky to escape with a win on a technical decision. »»

Stacking the Deck on Boxing Pay-Per-Views...Why Doesn't it Happen?

In the wake of the Floyd Mayweather Jr-Shane Mosley bout, a glaring negative regarding boxing pay-per-views stands out: the poor quality of the undercard. For a price ranging from $50 to $65, boxing fans were subject to three undercard bouts that were on the top of no fight fan's Christmas list of possible encounters. While the card turned out to be decent enough, the question remains why, exactly, do boxing fans always seem to get stuck with one pearl and three slimy, empty oysters when it comes to pay per view events? MMA-oriented fans tend to be the most vocal in their distaste for this practice. Fans of MMA, and the UFC specifically, are accustomed to pay-per-view events which feature a hyped main event alongside three or four intriguing undercard bouts. The question these fans pose to boxing is: Why can't you do the same? »»

2 Years of Injury, Defeat and Mismanagement: Can Kelly Pavlik Get Back on Track?

Two years ago, every informed finger was pointing directly at Kelly Pavlik as a "for sure" superstar of the future and, possibly, as the face of the sport, as guys like Oscar De la Hoya faded from the scene. You couldn't ask for a better back story or more impressive rise to glory. Two big wins over a pound-for-pound Jermain Taylor, a destruction of the still well-regarded Edison Miranda as well as victories over fringe challengers like Bronco McKart, Jose Luis Zertuche and Fulgencio Zuniga; It all pointed to a legit pound for pound placement with a definite eye aimed at upward movement. There seemed to be no limit to how big Pavlik could grow. A blue collar, pickup-driving Mid-west middleweight champ with an exciting style and, seemingly, not an ounce of pretense to him. Lord, this kid was destined to be a money machine! But then Pavlik (or his people) veered off Top Rank's carefully prepared course and stalled in the proverbial roadside ditch. »»
