Paul Williams tries to bounce back from recent losses and iffy performances that many believe should have been losses by facing veteran Japanese fighter Nobuhiro Ishida tonight in Corpus Christi (a curious choice of location), but the main event may be the third-best fight on the show.
In the Showtime co-feature, Tavoris Cloud gambles his IBF light heavyweight title against crafty challenger Gabriel Campillo, and prior to the main broadcast, popular heavyweight Chris Arreola is back in action, facing Eric Molina in a preliminary fight on Showtime Extreme.
