Default I get the feeling Paul Willams will be the welterweight version of Kingsley Ikeke

Biggest claim to fame: Freakishly tall.

Like Kingsley, we may never hear of him again after he loses

That's an interesting one. I'm thinking issues of co-ordination, balance, defence etc All a result of the reasons they are revered.

Difference is Williams has the sickest workrate in boxing and has a great chin.

One could argue that margarito has the sickest workrate in boxing and a great chin, as well. He's also been tested against better fighters which speaks volumes since his resume' isn't all that great either.

He's a hell of a lot more likely to be the next Kingsley Ikeke than the next Thomas Hearns. What a joke that was.

A great chin? Mitchell stunned him. Just because Williams can take the punches of someone like Pakau or Matthysse doesn't make his chin great.

Matthysse had 25 knockouts in 26 fights.

Never thought he was anything great. Margarito should make short work of him.

He does have a very good chin. I think a lot of people here don't realise that, and they are expecting Marg to startch him. Won't happen

I like Margarito.... But if Williams is the next Kingsley Ikeke, I don't think Margarito is going to be his Arthur Abraham..... Or his Anthony Hanshaw...

He may have a good chin. But he has very bad tendencies. He exposes his chin too much. Has very bad defence. Doesnt matter how great of a chin you have, if you leave it exposed as much as Williams does, you will get dropped.
