Aiken's Paul "The Punisher" Wiliams defeated Antonio Margarito late Saturday night to win the WBO Welterweight Championship in California.
Williams won the early rounds en route to the upset win over Margarito as he improves to a perfect 33 and 0 for his career. Williams won on all three scorecards to capture the championship.
Margarito hurt Williams in the 11th round and opened a cut about his eye, but Williams was able to prevail.
