Boxing champ Paul Williams has been left paralysed from the waist down following a horrific motorcycle accident on Sunday morning (27May12).
The 30-year-old sportsman was on his way to his brother's wedding in Atlanta, Georgia when he lost control of his bike as he tried to avoid a collision with an oncoming car. His vehicle spun out of control and he landed on his back on the road.
The accident snapped his spine and his trainer father George Peterson reveals Williams will never be able to step back into the ring again.
He tells Espn.com, "They’re saying he won’t walk again or box again. Paul is in denial right now. It’s been that way with him. You tell him he can’t or won’t do something, and he wants to prove you different. So whatever the doctors say, he’s not listening. But they say that (walking and boxing) is not going to happen."
Williams, a two-time World Boxing Organization Welterweight Champion and Light Middleweight Champion, had just signed up for a big fight against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in September (12). The bout has been cancelled as a result of his accident.
