Paralyzed Boxer Paul Williams Says Don’t Count Him Out, Plans to Walk Again (Video)

I only saw Paul Williams briefly when I was in Vegas covering both the Alvarez vs. Lopez and Martinez vs. Chavez fights, but even in that moment you could tell this was someone who was determined to defy the odds.

If you weren’t aware Williams had signed up to fight Alvarez in what many thought would be a great fight that Williams could win, but tragically a motorcycle accident had Williams fighting for his life.

When you watch this interview with Jim Gray you can tell that Williams understands how close he was to not being here with us today and therefore isn’t going to have a negative attitude about his paralysis.

I definitely won’t count him out.
