After reading reports that came out this weekend that Paul Williams was in a motorcycle accident which has left the two weight world champion paralysed from the waist down, a shocked and saddened middleweight champion, Sergio Martinez commented on the tragedy: “Upon learning of Paul’s injuries, I was deeply saddened,” said Martinez, who twice shared the ring with Williams, with their first epic battle being named the 2010 ‘Fight of the Year’. “When you are in the ring with a real champion, you know it, and Paul Williams was a very great champion, in every sense of the word. Paul and his family are in my thoughts through this very difficult time.”
