Liam Williams has vowed to settle the long-running rivalry with Chris Eubank Jr. on Saturday, December 11 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.
The card will be promoted by BOXXER and Wasserman Boxing - and televised live and exclusive on Sky Sports.
Eubank (31-2, 23 KO’s) and Williams (23-3, 18 KO’s) both lay claim to being the #1 middleweight in the UK and have traded verbal jabs numerous times in recent years. Now Eubank is taking the fight to Williams’ doorstep as he heads to the Welsh capital city of Cardiff to face the Welshman on home soil.
With both fighters known for having all-action styles and a proven pedigree for finishing fights inside the distance, their upcoming meeting is going to create fireworks.
Williams, who lost a twelve round unanimous decision to WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade in April, is hoping that a victory over Eubank will place him right back in line for another title shot.
Williams said, “I’m very excited to get the fight made. It’s been coming for a long time. I can’t wait to shut his mouth once and for all. There’s nothing like a big domestic showdown to get the juices flowing. A lot of people have been calling for this fight for a long time. I personally think it’s the biggest all-British fight outside of AJ and Fury.
“I’m really excited and just counting down the days. I’ve not been that impressed with Chris’ recent performances. People are talking about how he’s brought Roy Jones in to improve him but if I’m being totally honest I don’t think he’s improved one bit. A win in this fight and possibly even a stoppage over Eubank and my name is going to be well and truly out there and in the mix for world titles.”
