The first time Paul Williams fought Sergio Martinez it was because no one wanted to fight them so they did the only thing they could fought each other.
There are many instances where fighters cant find fights so they fight little known fighters or another guy that cant find a fight.
I do believe however that the “ducked” fighter club is getting smaller and smaller by year. They are becoming the “not enough money” club.
Fighters don’t get ducked because people are afraid to fight them anymore. They are getting ducked because they are not worth the money.
This is my list of ducked fighters and it was a hard one to put together but once I combed the many weight divisions and looked up and down this is the list I have put together.
Most of these fighters are a combination of big, powerful, and very awkward. Most of these fighters are not American or are not known in the United States.
