WRDW-TV in Atlanta is reporting that former welterweight and jr middleweight world champion Paul Williams was involved in a tragic Sunday morning motorcycle crash near Atlanta that has likely left him paralyzed from the waist down. According to an AP story, Williamsí spinal cord was severed after he was thrown from his bike and he landed on his back and head.

Paul is said to be conscious and alert in an Atlanta hospital and manager George Peterson told WRDW-TV that surgery is scheduled for Wednesday to help stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it.

It was just confirmed last week that Williams would challenge WBC super welterweight world champion Saul ®Canelo® Alvarez on September 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
