    Battle of the Williams, Carl The Truth Williams vs Cleveland Big Cat Williams. Does Big Cat slug toe to toe as he did against Sonny Liston or does Carl box as he did against Larry Holmes in 1985?

    Carl wins however he wants. Most probably he makes Cleveland look foolish with his absurd Boxing advantage before putting him away.

    At one point I favored Carl the Truth. And he’d definitely have a good chance. But after seeing some of the left hooks that Cleveland Big Cat hit people with, this could be a problem for Truth who was regularly decked or even beaten by the left. I’m undecided.

    The truth here is that cats have nine lives, and in all nine of his lives the Big Cat beats little Carl.

    Cleveland Williams would KO Carl Williams inside 3 rounds. With left hook.

    Carl is good but can't deny his chin probably let's him down here.

    i think Carl takes this if he boxes smartly behind that superb jab and punishes Cleve from the outside for a few rounds.

    I fancy Carl wins 2 if they fought 3 times

    Carl will use his long jab and right hand to hurt Cleveland and back him onto the ropes. This will be late in the 2nd or early in the 3rd round.
    At that point Carl will be winging punches with his right hand down by his right hip. And Cleveland, fighting to survive, will wind up and wing a hook with his right hand by his right hip.
    The fight will end 30-60 seconds after that moment, one way or the next.

    I'd say Carl would be lookin good for a couple of rounds before he sees the ring doctor shining a light in his eyes asking ,,"do you know where you're at"?

    In a 2 outta 3 falls match The Truth beats Big Cat 2 outta 3 times in a classic trilogy for the ages. Truth wasn't small at all and had the height and range to cope with Big Cat's pressure. But that left hook BOMB could land flush and The Truth is batting 0 for life when defending left hooks.

    Could go either way but I'll take the more skilled fighter with KO power of his own.

    Carl had a great jab and a shaky chin, Cleve had a so so chin but top drawer power, I take him to catch the Truth at some point and stretch him on the canvas.

    Cleveland mayors Carl in 3, Truth's overconfidence betrays him.

    Yea I think The Truth would be ahead on the cards until his glaring flaw reared it ugly head. Cleveland Williams lefthook would certainly cut the evening short.
