Default Margarito-Williams - pick the winner

I'm taking Margarito by late TKO in a war. Here's my reasoning

Margarito's a proven commodity. We know he's relentless, has great stamina, and has very good power and a very solid chin. He can take a punch well and even when hurt has proven the ability to recover quickly.

I'm a big fan of Williams, I think he's one of the most fun to watch boxers out there. But he's there to be hit. He doesn't have a style that really is going to exploit Margarito's shortcomings. Williams has good but not great power, I don't think he has the power that's going to make Margarito stop and think twice. I still think Williams defense will leave him vulnerable against a big puncher like Margarito and I'm not 100% sold on his chin, I just don't know. People say that Matthyse is a big puncher because he has a really high KO percentage, then you look at the guys Matthyse has KO'd and you realize why it's so high, any top 30 welterweight would knock those guys out.

In a fight like this, I just have to pick the proven commodity. Two relentless fighters without much defense, who are not opposed to throwing 100 punches a round. I have to pick the guy with the better power, the better opposition, and the more proven chin in that case

I pretty much agree with that.

I wont be suprised by any result in this fight, except maybe an early KO. I aint to big on either fighter to be honest.

But Margarito has been in there with some good fighters whereas Williams is a little more of an unproven up and comer.

Im picking Magarito to storm home to edge the decision but I wouldnt rule out a behind points stoppage from Margs. Williams's workrate and size is definitely gonna take some rounds off Magarito.

Margarito . . . irregardless how.

But I'd prefer if he can make Williams quit.

I won't mind being wrong. Either way we have eliminated a top fighter from the equation.

That's why they fight, to prove it in the ring. Not have newbie asshole talking shit 24/7 like they know everything.

Margarito by KO rnd 4. Williams will be obliterated. Round 3 and of course 4 will be hell for Willams.

I can't lose on this one mate, because I dislike both of these hype jobs.

Amsterdam's cemented thoughts:

"Who gives a ****, one less hype job, hopefully it's an entertaining scrap".

Margarito doesnt have that great of a defense but Williams makes him look like Willie Pep. Margarito wins in 8 one sided rounds.

im taking margo by decision. i dunno, but i think it will be highly competitive and williams is better than people think. i just think margo is even better and will therefore out work him. i wouldnt be suprise if margo stops him as hes a good finisher.

I'm taking Williams by decision. I respect Marg and he's tough, but he can be out boxed. I think Williams might pull that off in what should be a close contest.

If I'm wrong? Then margarito wins by KO.
