before phillips (which happened several days before pac fought oscar), williams fought kolle and both weighed above 154 which was at MW already wiliams was already a LMW/MW even before pac fought as a WW and you wants pac to fight williams at the time?
Nice spin, but that is not what you said, the fact is williams at the time could campaign easily at WW/LMW/MW, he could make either weight he said this time and time again. So cut the crap.
In 2008 he fought Quintana twice at WW, in 2008 he went up in weight again to fight Kolle which u say was at Middleweight, in 2008 he then went back down again to fight Phillips at 154.
And do you know why he went to 154 for the phillips fight and gave up his WW title? It was because he couldn't secure a meaningful fight at WW.
Piguanani I thought it was about fighting the best? As long as Williams can make weight at 147 what's the problem?
