DA Seth Williams steps in boxing ring for good cause

NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia's district attorney showed off his skills Saturday night - not in the courtroom, but in the boxing ring.

Seth Williams took on criminal defense attorney Tariq El-Shabazz as part of the Night at the Fights charity event at the Liacouras Center.

Their celebrity match-up was appropriately named the Litigation Situation.

Legendary boxing champion Bernard Hopkins gave Williams some pointers, but it seems they weren't enough.

Williams fought hard for three rounds, but lost by decision.

Proceeds from the ticketed event were split between several area charities.
