Paul Williams beat Kermit Cintron on Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California in one of the strangest endings to a fight I’ve seen. Some people are accusing Cintron of taking a dive in this fight — literally. He wound up tumbling out of the ring in the fourth round of their fight and getting carted off on a stretcher. Here’s the video of Kermit Cintron falling out of the ring in his fight with Paul Williams:
Paul Williams won the fight by a technical split decision. When Cintron fell out of the ring, he landed on a TV and a table, hurting his back. Although Cintron wanted to continue, they wouldn’t let him, so the fight went to the judges’ cards and Williams was awarded the victory (he was winning on two of the three cards). Williams said he felt badly the fans didn’t get their money’s worth. Don’t you worry, Paul, we sure did.
