Cintron Takes Hard Fall Out of Ring and Fight Ends in The Midst of the Fourth Round
The Paul Williams vs. Kermit Cintron fight ended in a way that assuredly nobody could have seen coming. In a fourth round where the action was finally picking up after a slower than expected first few rounds, Williams and Cintron got tangled up. Williams fell to the ropes, and Cintron ended up falling through them and crashing onto the ringside table, possibly landing on the sharp edges of the computer monitors that lay nearby. He was unable to continue following the fall, and the fight went to the scorecards for a technical decision.
From the replay of the fall, it looks like Cintron fell first on his head and then possibly banged his back or ribs. Cintron wanted to continue, but the doctors prevented him for doing so, and he was loaded onto a stretcher with his head carefully strapped in place and carted from the arena.
With the rules for professional boxing matches in California, the fight went to the scorecards with three full rounds having been completed.

Williams had only just begun picking up the pace of the fight when it came to its conclusion. In the first two rounds, it appeared that Cintron’s counter punching, his overall speed and the power that he hit with were deterring Williams from bringing the usual pressure that we’re accustomed to.
But Paul Williams was certainly picking up the pace and had decided to bring the heat when the unfortunate accident took place and the bout came to an unexpected ending.
