â†µIt's too good a punch to have just happened randomly. I'm not saying it was easy convincing the trainer to tie his arm to the support post of the speed bag, either, but great fighters innovate where others refuse the new. "Yeah, Steve. I know it sounds crazy. But what if he grabs my left arm during the fight, and I have to clinch but still want to swing for his head without looking but with precision? Oh, and all this happens from a semi-crouching stance? Go ahead and duck tape my arm to that pole, and I'll just practice this for an hour or two for each arm." â†µ
â†µWilliams won the fight in a unanimous decision, and this is probably in the best interests of the assembled judges. Wrong him, and I'm not ruling out him punching you while you're sitting in coach 30,000 feet above the surface of the earth. This may not sound difficult, you say? What if I told you Williams was sitting in a checkout line at the grocery store in Las Cruces, New Mexico at the time? You're darn right that changes things, but he could do it and get back in time to hand over a few coupons before checkout. He's just that freaky. â†µâ†µ
