  • [VIDEO] Former champ Paul Williams hits heavy bag again

    Paralyzed former boxing champion Paul Williams (41-2) appeared overjoyed to be hitting a bag again, recently. The welterweight has not fought since 2012, after being paralyzed by a motorcycle accident.

    In the video above, however, Williams puts his gloves back on, rolls up to a heavy bag and gets back to work. Hitting the bag brings a huge smile to the face of the "Punisher," as he says. "I ain't do this in so long, boy."

    Seeing a great and young champion like Williams in a wheel chair is heart breaking. More than that, however, seeing Williams' face light up as he finds enjoyment in a simple set of familiar but estranged actions is inspiring.

    We wish the 33 year-old warrior all the best as he continues to persvere. Watch the video above and let us know your favorite Paul Williams moment in the comments section!
