Liam Smith vs. Liam Williams II Done: WBO 154 Eliminator

By Elliot Foster

Liam Smith will fight Liam Williams in a rematch in the near future.

The super-welterweights clashed in a controversial showdown in April, with ‘Beefy’ coming out on top after the fight was stopped at the end of round 10.

The pair will now renew their rivalry in the coming months after Frank Warren, the promoter of the pair, confirmed that a deal had been reached for the return.

Warren told Boxing News recently that he wanted to make the second fight between the pair on a date to be confirmed in September.

And it was announced, after Saul Alvarez’ one-sided shutout victory against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, that the Smith vs. Williams rematch will be an official eliminator for the WBO world super-welterweight title, which is soon to become vacant after it was disclosed that he will face Gennady Golovkin in a huge middleweight clash on September 16 for the Kazakh’s world middleweight titles.

Smith is a previous holder of the title and lost it last September, when he was stopped inside nine rounds by ‘Canelo’ in Texas.

The official Twitter account of Hall of Fame promoter Warren revealed that further details regarding the rematch will be made public in due course.

Good stuff. Looking forward to it. Williams was boxing really well in the first fight, and wasn't letting Smith get inside. He did seem to tire though towards the end while Smith had a second wind. Should be good.

What a year :boxing: Well worthy of a rematch. Hopefully it lands in Liverpool or Wales this time
