There was plenty of trash talk before the fight, including this gem from Williams prefight: “I’m not worried about the dog biting me because you can’t bite in the ring.” Well the dog just took a huge bite out of the Punisher.

He says he’s willing to hear offers for fights and that he would be willing to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Manny Pacquiao at 156 pounds. Williams is now 36-2 after the loss.
