At the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, Paul Williams (38-1, 27KOs) won a twelve round majority decision over WBC junior middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (44-2-2, 24KOs) in a boxing classic. The scores were 114-114 a draw, 115-113 and a very insane score of 119-110 for Williams - what fight was this judge watching. The fight was very close and there was a mountain of action. A fight of the year contender for sure.

Williams came out guns blazing in the first round, taking the fight to Martinez and throwing a lot of punches. He started putting a lot of pressure on Martinez. Martinez came in with a good counter-right hand to clock Williams. A few seconds later Williams scored a flash knockdown on Martinez who was off-balance at the time. Then Martinez landed a big left hand on Williams' head. At the end of the round, a counter hook from Martinez sent Williams down for what may have been the first knockdown of Williams' career.

Yeah that was a good one, Williams puts on a great show, it's a shame he gets pushed to the back burner so much

It was a great fight but Martinez should have won it or at best a draw. The judge that voted 119 to 110 for Williams should have his eyes examined. They are both great fighters and to take nothing away from Williams, Martinez landed more punches overall and landed harder punches. He also scored the only knockdown of the fight.

Very good fight that could have gone either way or a draw. Hope they do it again, and I hope Pavlik is forced to face the winner. He needs to step up now that his hand has apparently healed.
