Williams eyeing Nov. or Dec. return

Paul Williams is targeting a return in November of December, said his promoter, Dan Goossen.

Goossen would like Williams to face a right-handed opponent at 147 pounds.

“But, of course, Paul Williams will fight anybody,” Goossen said.

Williams is coming off a controversial majority decision over southpaw Erislandy Lara on July 9, a fight many believe Lara won. Williams was stopped by lefty Sergio Martinez in two rounds prior to that.

Williams split two fights in 2008 with another lefty, Carlos Quintana, getting outpointed and then scoring a first-round KO in the rematch. He also easily outpointed veteran southpaw Winky Wright.
