And we know that isn't the case at all.
I can tell you wern't watching boxing at the time, if you're bringing up Williams. People who were actually watching boxing at that time remember that EVERYBODY except 2 fighters wanted to fight him from 147 to 160.
I really wish people would stop bringing up Williams when nobody wanted to fight this dude.
