Williams dominates former champ Wright for unanimous decision

  • Follow Latest News

LAS VEGAS — Aiken's Paul "The Punisher" Williams battered Ronald "Winky" Wright with an avalanche of punches to win a unanimous decision Saturday night, dominating a meeting between two much-avoided middleweights.

Williams (37-1, 27 KOs) worked Wright's formidable defensive posture like a speed bag from the opening bell at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, relentlessly breaking down the former champion in Wright's return from a 21-month ring absence.

With so many punches to block, Wright (51-5-1) simply didn't have time to land enough scoring blows against his taller, longer opponent. Williams barely appeared tired by the closing bell, chasing Wright around the ring relentlessly.
