Read Rest here - http://www.boxing.com/ten_count_for_carl_the_truth_williams.htmlFormer heavyweight contender Carl "The Truth" Williams passed away today after a long battle with esophageal cancer. He was only 54.
During a 15-year career that spanned from 1982-1997, Williams compiled a 30-10 (21 KOs) record against the best the division had to offer.
He was blown out in one round by undisputed champion Mike Tyson in Atlantic City in July 1989, and also lost a 15-round decision to IBF titlist Larry Holmes in May 1985.
The Holmes fight was significant for two reasons, not the least of which is the fact that most people believe that Williams won handily. It was the very last heavyweight title fight to be scheduled for 15 rounds.
