A fixture on the pound-for-pound lists and a fan-favorite, Paul “The Punisher” Williams had an outstanding 41-2 record with 27 wins by knockout. Williams, a two-division titlist, became paralyzed from the waist down following a motorcycle accident in May 2012. Even after becoming a paraplegic from the accident, Williams maintained his signature smile and a great attitude. Recently, Williams connected with Team Fight to Walk co-founder Boyd Melson in New York City, where he helped Williams find speaking engagements. During their time together, Melson took Williams to Rutgers University to meet Dr. Wise Young. He showed Williams patients treated during clinical trials in China. Williams saw the patients walking following a surgical procedure that enabled their axons to regenerate. Young is planning to conduct the same trials next year in the United States. Amazed by what he saw, Williams immediately joined Team Fight to Walk. Both Williams and Boyd Melson will appear on the broadcast tonight to talk about boxing and Team Fight to Walk (www.teamfighttowalk.com). Rich, Tony, and Tom will also recap last week's combat sports news and events and preview the upcoming events.
