Edwin Valero = not so random perhaps.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Now Paul " The Punisher " Williams has been involved in a motorcycle accident and by all accounts is paralysed from the waist down .

I was looking forward to his fight with Alvarez ..

A bad day for boxing so far ...

I have never heard of him but Thai super-bantamweight Thangthong Kiattaweesuk and his wife died in a car accident today. What a terrible day for boxing.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

i never really knew much about tapia besides just reading stories about him. haven't actually seen him fight beyond highlights. tragic story. paul williams is one of my favorite boxers and one whose career i always felt should have been much bigger than it was. that sucks so much

I suppose Gary Mason is the odd-one-out here because his death was a straightforward accident, could have happened to anyone. The rest are either suicides or come as a result of their fighter mentality. You have to be kind of crazy to become a pro boxer and I'm guessing the repeated blows do the head only make matters worse.

So brutal. I hope Williams recovers too. What a horrible turn in life.

Also, RIP Tapia.

Just watched the video on ESPN. Apparently Williams is 100% paralyzed from the waist down and will never walk again. So sad.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Yeah according to everything I've read, Williams severed the spinal cord. That's the type of injury from which recovery is impossible. Incredibly sad.

I don't know if this is public or not, but supposedly Mitchell vs Burns on the Haye vs Chisora undercard isn't happening.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Sorry mutigers, Kirkland withdrew due to injury earlier today.

Looks like either Trout/Rodriguez (meh) or Quintana (lol)

Dan Rafael ‏@danrafaelespn
Apparently Kirkland injured enough to turn down close to $1M but would be OK enough if he got the $2.5M the new adviser is demanding. Crazy

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

ugh sorry for double post but just thought i should point out something I didn't realize until 10 secs ago is there is an epix app for xbox and a 2 week free trial opportunity..epix is the channel that had the bute/froch fight I don't have a computer right now so i missed it, not sure if they will have any fights of that caliber in the future but if they do its worth it to get the free trial and just watch the fight..I certainly would have done it for that fight had I known
