    Middleweight champ Sergio Martinez and Paul Williams will meet in a rematch of one of 2009's most exciting fights on Nov. 20 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., their promoters told ESPN.com on Monday.

    The rematch, one of the most significant fights of the year, will be televised on HBO's "World Championship Boxing." A news conference to formally announce the bout is scheduled for Thursday in New York, months after the on-and-off negotiations began.

    "It's nice to get it completed," Dan Goossen, Williams' promoter, said. "It's not a matter of whose fault it is [that the fight took so long to make], it's a matter that you have two of the most feared fighters in the world facing each other. It doesn't just get made overnight. There's a lot more to it. That's what took time."


    Should be a war like the first fight. I'll take Williams again.

    I don't watch a lot of boxing anymore, but any time Paul Williams fights, I will watch. He is an exciting fighter to watch.

    Awesome news. Really surprised Paul would demand a catchweight for this. Martinez takes this one.

    Nice!

    First fight was awesome but IMO Sergio won it.

    I think Da Sex wins this. P Will didn't look to convincing his last fight, even though it was 3 or 4 rounds. He was losing.

    I thought Sergio Martinez won the first fight. Maybe he can make it decisive this go around.
