Boxer Paul 'The Punisher' Williams likely paralyzed after wreck

Monday, May 28, 2012

ATLANTA -- In a decorated career in the boxing ring, Paul Williams picked up three belts and the nickname, "The Punisher." Now, Williams has a bigger fight ahead.

After a Sunday morning motorcycle crash near Atlanta, Williams is likely paralyzed from the waist down.

Manager George Peterson told News 12 that he's in the hospital with a surgery scheduled for Wednesday. That surgery will be to stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it.

Williams was schedule to fight Saul Alvarez for the WBC Light Middleweight title Sept. 15 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The product of the Aiken Boxing Club has a career record of 41-2-0, with 27 knockouts. He's the two-time holder of the WBO Welterweight championship and has held the WBO Light Middleweight belt once.

Wow, that's shocking news. Absolutely dreadful, puts a real dampener on the aftermath of a great weekend.

That's horrible to hear. Thankfully it wasn't any worse but it's still terrible. Hopefully its not as bad as they think & he'll be able to walk again

Absolutely terrible. In shock. Massive fan of P-Dub. All the worries about his health from the shellackings he's taken in the ring and how much he's got left, and now this.

So sad to hear.

Doesn't sound good

"That surgery will be to stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it."

Suggests the lower half is ****ed. Obviously I hope I'm wrong and the reports are exaggerated. That's sickening news.
