Paul Williams’ promoter says the boxer is resting Friday night following surgery to stabilize his spine.
Promoter Dan Goossen said the surgery lasted 6 ½ hours Friday night.
Goossen said the surgery “went as planned” and doctors said they would talk with Williams about the procedure on Saturday.
The 30-year-old Williams severed his spinal cord when he was thrown from his motorcycle Sunday morning in Marietta, Ga. Police said he was driving too fast for conditions.
Williams’ manager, George Peterson, said the former welterweight champion has no movement from the waist down.
