Talks are under way to match titleholders Paul Williams and Kermit Cintron in a unification fight in February on HBO, according to both camps and HBO. Cintron (28-1, 26 KOs) must retain his title Nov. 23 against Jesse Feliciano on the Fernando Vargas-Ricardo Mayorga Showtime PPV undercard to make it possible. Williams (33-0, 24 KOs) outpointed Antonio Margarito to win his belt July 14. Cintron's only loss is to Margarito, but he rebounded with four consecutive knockout wins, claimed a vacant title and defended it in explosive fashion on HBO with a second-round destruction of Walter Matthysse on July 14.

On the same card..

Hoping to inject some life into the heavyweight division, HBO plans to air exciting heavyweight prospect Cristobal Arreola (22-0, 20 KOs) in the co-feature to the potential Williams-Cintron fight. HBO and promoter Dan Goossen have just begun talking about opponents, one of which is another Goossen prospect, Travis Walker (25-0-1, 19 KOs).

HELL YEA!!!

Yup...I would take Williams as well I think, but Cintron has been on a tear lately, and with the amount of punches Williams throws he is bound to leave an opening that Cintron could take advantage of. But my feeling right now is that Williams will dictate the pace and win.

Willaims vs Cintron??? I like it. Let me be the first to say.

Williams ko7
nice! i was hoping this fight would get made. if anybody wins by ko i'd say it would most likely be cintron. i can see williams taking a decision if this fight materializes.

kermits power is on another planet and williams is way to open, i see this being a win inside 6 rounds for kermit he's the most improved fighter in boxing IMO.

i can see sintron having his moments. that right hand of his quick and powerful. not to mention he's throwing it with a lot more confidence.
if you look at the amount of rights both margie and sharmba landed on williams cintrons bound to land because his is like a piston.

this will be an easy nights work for kermit guys mark my words.

Williams could definitely get blasted. Kermit does have great power and Williams defense is his offense really. He throws so many punches that his opponent is always backing up.

I think Williams will control the pace and win by UD, but Cintron could for sure knock him out. Williams isn't a defensive wall or anything.

If by easy you mean eating punches and losing, than I agree. Cintron will absolutely lose this fight if its made. I dont believe he can KO Williams, and theres no way he wins a decision against him.

Easy money. I'll take all bets on that one.

As easy as it was for Margarito? Because that looked pretty difficult. I see this being a great fight that will be relatively close unlike Williams' last fight.

I like Williams by UD.
