Default How long can Williams maintain 147?

If he can maintain this weight, he can do some serious damage and be a PFP type fighter. At 154 he can probably be a belt holder. Beyond that he loses most of his advantages. How long can he hold out. 1, 2 years? I wish him luck, but his hardest task will be making weight in the years ahead.

I think he's just going to be avoided at 147 until he moves up. I think he'll do well at 154, and maybe he'll actually gain more power moving up to 160.

I think he'll be around 147 for 3 more fights, or a year and half. He'll probably end up in a struggle centered around his weight before he moves up. I could see him missing a weight in or just be horribly dehydrated... But with the amount of weight he rehydrates, I'm amazed at his stamina, which makes me second guess how much boiling weight affects him. He certainly looked sickly at the weigh in for the Margarito fight.

I'm more impressed at Cintron's conditioning. Only 5 pounds heavier at weigh in? Bravo sir, bravo.

Williams will be forced to move up in about a year and a half. It will become to hard to make that weight about 27.

Umm, I dont wanna sound like im all over Williams now, but i think he would be better off fight at middleweight, probably even Supermiddle, my guess would be to unify with another title holder, then move to jr. middle for a title fight then probably one or two defenses before going to middleweight, i can see him there within the next two, three years

Well Cintron was a wrestler for a long while, and knew from the start how to diet and maintain a good weight, so im sure that background helped him.

He will be avoided, and the reason will be "what has he done"?
